The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf

The Voyage Out - Michael Cunningham

I think this was the first I've read of Virginia Woolf, so I wasn't sure what to expect.  It wasn't quite as good as I'd hoped though.  It didn't feel like a great deal happened for awhile, at least earlier on in the book, and some of the descriptive or philosophical passages got rather wordy and took a bit to wade through.  I didn't really like any of the characters either, so I didn't really care what happened to them throughout the book.  It was just ok.
