Publisher's Summary

The Waves traces the lives of six friends from childhood to old age. It was written when Virginia Woolf was at the height of her experimental literary powers, and she allows each character to tell their own story, through powerful, poetic monologues. By listening to these voices struggling to impose order and meaning on their lives we are drawn into a literary journey which stunningly reproduces the complex, confusing and contradictory nature of human experience.

Pretentious and disappointing.

This early work may have been a sketch book for a developing writer, but the stilted narrative of the story combined with a cloying narration became too much to bear. One of the few books I have not been able to get through.
