Okay everyone, get ready for the shortest book review ever*: Jacob's Room is Virginia Woolf's third novel, roughly following the life of Jacob Flanders, who I honestly can't tell you much about because there isn't much of a story here. Woolf's writing is, as ever, lovely and easy to immerse yourself in (if you're in the right frame of mind) but the lack of narrative makes it hard to come back to. This is why it took me nearly four months to read this unassuming, 176-page novel (I started it during the Classics Club Readathon back in January...oops). All in all, I enjoyed the writing but this wasn't exactly my favorite novel by Woolf. For those new to her, I suggest you start with To the Lighthouse or Mrs. Dalloway...there's a reason people always talk about those two novels (it's because they have the writing and a story, though the story's not necessarily the point).
On the plus side, this is the sixth book I've finished for the Classics Club Readalong. Woot!
*Or at least every written by me. What can I say? I'm wordy. Usually. Not today.
