Все продавцы . The Years. With introductions by susan hill and steven connor. The Years follows the lives of the Pargiters, a large middle-class London family, from an uncertain spring in 1880 to a party on a summer evening in the 1930s. We see them each endure and remember heart-break, loss, radical change and stifling conformity, marriage and regret. Written in 1937, this was the most popular of Virginia Woolf's novels during her lifetime, and is a powerful indictment of 'Victorianism' and its values.

Virginia would produce her novel Mrs Dalloway in 1925 but serious work on it started in this pivotal year. Woolf was influenced in her writing style by Marcel Proust. As the grand doyenne of the Bloomsbury set she knew Eliot and Forster considering them as her friends. Joyce saw Ulysses printed by the Hogarth Press owned by Virginia and Leonard Woolf. Lawrence (185-1930) The peripatetic and tubercular Lawrence and his wife Frieda spent most of the year in Taos New Mexico.

The most popular of Woolf's novels during the author's lifetime, this book tells the story of a family, the Pargiters, and is a savage indictment of British society at the beginning of the 20th century.
Comments to eBook The Years
Hawk Flying
Up there with Mrs. D., To the Lighthouse, and a few other of her great works. Did not want it to end. Yet it did. The afternoon dwindled away. The nieghbor mowed his lawn . The gardeners blew dust everywhere with those awful gas powered leaf blowers. He made a coffee and watched the grey and black mockingbird settle on the telephone pole through the kitchen window. The Years went on and did not end, but the novel did. God Bless V.W.

I understand that this book has received rave reviews, and I wonder if they are reviewing the author, not the book. There is no perceivable plot and it is hard to relate to the characters, who are more caricaturized than relatable. Perhaps it was meant to run on and on, year after year, with no plan, as it does with most people. They just live and react to their own milieu.
That basic criticism said, I found the setting descriptions very well done. Her use of opening each year with detailed descriptions of the time of year the action takes place worth emulating. Her craft of writing is excellent.

Any Virginia Woolf lover would love this. It takes some time to read to really understand what is going on - especially if you aren't familiar with her writing style - but it is well worth it. Would not recommend this as a first read of Woolf's, but definitely for a developed fan that has not yet reached this point in her collection.

If they are going to charge ten bucks for an e-book, they could at least have it proof-read. They obviously didn't - just scanned some print edition and published the result without even looking at it. The software saw the word "the" as "die" about half the time, for instance, so that's what appears in the kindle edition. Too often kindle books are riddled with typos like this. They should either do some quality control, or lower the price.

the story of a family which changed from one millenium to the other. the changes in uses, traditions, how life changes and while the person is immerse in that change the character and uses change. A vivid story plenty of feelings .The secret stories of each family is also reflected in this great work of Virginia Wolf
Miromice
Take it as a slow read. Have the patience to breath with the lovely descriptions of nature and city surroundings, A bit old fashioned of course but beautiful. Akin to Proust, lovely and tongue in cheek. Very sharp observation of special characters.

This book is like a classic painting, and it is like a Lily among thorns, so to speak. It is. a signature
style that is intelligent, interesting, and unique. I say it is a masterpiece. I highly recommend this book for such a great style of writing, and for the learning experience.
I was an English major, but somehow, I never read anything by Virginia Woolf, so when our book club suggested this book, I was all in favor of it. But I found it tedious and boring. The point of view is constantly shifting between different characters, in a way that feels amateurish to me, though obviously Ms. Woolf is no amateur. So apparently this is supposed to work, and to mean something, but I just found it annoying. There is a large family of children, I couldn't even keep count of how many, and they all grow up and have children, and the people pop in and out of the story--it was just a muddle to me. Even the supposedly evocative descriptions of the weather and the landscape fell flat for me. The only positive thing in the book to me was the descriptions of locales in London. Otherwise, I simply had no interest in any of the characters. And in the end, nothing ever happened. Years go by. But we knew that.
