Mrs. Dalloway, by Virginia Woolf

Odallowayne of the things I loved from this book is that Virgina Woolf accomplishes for her characters something I always wanted to do for myself: being able to record every single one of my thoughts in a certain moment. There’s very little dialogue written in this novel, and everything that happens is seen from inside the head of the characters. The whole novel occurs in one day, the one of Clarissa Dalloway’s party, but the reader is constantly taken from the present to the past and back, reading into the people’s thoughts and being able to reconstruct the story and the reasons of their present behaviors and personalities.
