I found Viriginia Woolf's second published novel(after the entertaining The Voyage Out) extremely tedious. None of the characters are particularly likeable, except for Mary, a suffragist who doesn't appear often enough. There is a modicum of humor-the current plot problems of Desperate Housewives comes to mind with "Yes, we're engaged, No we're not" complications that get old pretty quickly. Virginia Woolf wrote certifiable classics, but the general reader can skip this one and enjoy Mrs. Dalloway all the more.
