I am not sure if I spelled her last name correctly..but you get the idea..

I was wondering if anyone could reccomend one of her books for me?  I have never read her and I would like to start with a good one. 

Thanks!

i havent read any of them either but isnt one called 'mrs dalloway' or something - i know the spelling is wrong but thats the book that the hours involved. cant say i have been inspired to read any of her books myself i didnt really like the hours that much. i think i will read 'who's afraid of viginia wolfe' though cause i read this awsome monologue from it and it sounds pretty interesting...

i've started both, but i never got to finish them, havin exams, maybe its about time to restart them...
i've seen the film "mrs dalloway" and now i want to see the hours, which is not exactly written by virginia woolf's novel but based on it...

I dont think I will have any trouble understanding them...

I saw the Hours as well, and I must say it intrigued me.  Thank you for the rec.  I will check them out.

The Hours was a lot like the book,  But I have to say , the book bored me to tears and the movie was so depressing.

Well I always thought that Virgnia Wolfe wrote Flowers in the Attic...so if she did read that and then the sequels to it...its such a sad story and very long!!  But if she didnt read it anyways
