    1. This slim collection roughly 100 pages of ten essays by Virgina Woolf, published as part of the Penguin Great Ideas series may be the best book I ve read in the past ten years It s also one of the hardest to review The explanation is straightforward every time I try, the review just devolves into tired cliches shimmering prose , scintillating wit , a writer at the height of her powers , anyone or fills up with direct quotes from the work itself Not just skimpy little quotelets either, but huge, [...]


    2. This is only my second Virginia Woolf having previously read her fantastic essay Three Guineas which I frantically marked up with notes I didn t think I d do that to that extreme again but here I am with Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid which is equally stunning I really don t know what to say about her that hasn t been said already other than she is in my mind the most outstanding, persuasive, uncompromising social critic of the 20th century Reading her essays, I often imagine her at a cocktail [...]

    5. I grew up knowing about Woolf through my mother, who deeply loves her, but I never really read much Woolf, to be honest While she is not really my style of writer, she is a beautiful essayist with both sharp humor and critical thinking skills and an amazing breadth This is especially true in the first and most famous piece, but this little volume is so short and well compiled that all of the selections are worth the time This is an excellent little foray into Woolf for those wanting to make the [...]


    6. Don t be mislead by the title, this is a collection of essays Only the first one is called Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid , and it is by far the greatest in the series Woolf s thoughts are as revolutionary as they are engaging, and it is wonderful to get an impression of her personal beliefs and ideas, but the essays do get less organised and interesting the closer you get to the end.


    7. I am not a Virginia Woolf fan, but I was intrigued by this collection of essays and thought I d give her another try I loved the first few essays, but man, can this girl ramble I do like her essays than her novels, but I m still not a fan of her.
