This book is long, over 400 pages. I thought I would have to slog through it. On the contrary, it was a wonderful read, very hard to put down. Bell knows his subject, his aunt Virginia very well. But more important, he knows how to write a biography that informs, describes, explains and plain enchants us with the incredible personality of Virginia Woolf. He provides contexts for excerpts of her letters and diaries. We can understand the obstacles which she had to overcome, to the extent possible, the way her mind worked, the extremely interesting friends she had, and their doings. I especially appreciated the dignified way in which he wrote about her end. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury group she belonged to.

Virginia Woolf: A Biography
By now, it is the most chronologically complete biography of Virginia Woolf, also giving interesting details about her ancestors. Some data of the family life might have been omitted in the book but in general it is a pretty objective and accurate work showing a lot of academic research.

A must read for those interested in Virginia Woolf. Very detailed and well written.

Have not finished. It's a somewhat difficult read by her nephew. But oh the family pictures alone which are many was very interesting. She had such depression and back then they didn't know how to treat it nor had the medication. Poor Virginia.
Brilliant woman poet.

Arrived on time and as advertised
This book is written in a style that is definitely boring, but it is enhanced by scattered pictures of Virginia Woolf, her friends, husband and family members. The content is very informative, however the style of writing leaves alot to be desired.
