One of the icons of modernism, Virginia Woolf is credited alongside James Joyce for redefining the novel and challenging the limitations of the form. Published in 1927, To the Lighthouse helped establish Woolf among the 20th century?s most important and influential writers.

At their second home on the Isle of Skye, the Ramsay family surrounds itself with friends and colleagues. They contend with World War I, family deaths, and hardships both spoken and unspoken. All the while, the lighthouse looms in the distance. Six-year-old James asks his father to take him there, but many years will pass before the voyage begins. Woolf was deeply interested in her characters' inner thoughts and feelings, and because of this, To the Lighthouse emerges as an unforgettable, introspective masterpiece.

    " Do not read this book if you're looking for an "easy summer read." This novel requires your focus and concentration. But everyone should eventually read this novel. It is beautifully written and Woolf's style of writing is very poetic. I read this for my British Lit class and most people complained about not liking it. I personally loved it. You should understand that the plot is not the most important part of the novel but the character's development throughout the story. It is more on the psychology of the minds and thoughts of each character. I've read before that Woolf was one of the first writers to write about human nature and that is shown in this novel. Symbolize also plays a huge part in the novel and once you figure it out, you'll know why this novel is pure perfection. "

    " We read this in our Book Group and the general response was not good. Not a fun read. We even invited an English professor to our gathering and he agreed that Virginia Woolf was a unique writer, but not really a good writer. I do remember very long runs of words. "

    " Something about this book just captured me. It might be because my "second Mum" had just passed away (my mother's best friend) and it's one of the first books I read after that, but it also might be Woolf's style. Whatever the case, I escaped to the Lighthouse with the family in the story too ... "
