A moron, an imbecile, and an idiot met and discussed To The Lighthouse, praising it for its beauty, masterly use of volume, emotional swings...the book is tiresome to read and I had to make myself finish it; the conclusion is as disappointing as the rest of it. The book lacks the poetic beauty of Robert Penn Warren's classic All The King's Men; a line in the story says women can't write, and if Woolf were the only example, that would be a truism, but there is the wonderful tale by Harper Lee which puts that claim to rest. Woolf is pretentious to the point of incredulity and completely lacks the plot development of such true greats as Great Expectations. A dreary, moribund work at best.
