The Hours - Michael Cunningham Really enjoyed this book. I had seen the movie when it came out, but it definitely wasn't as good as the book. I'm not a big fan of virginia woolf's writing, but still found the story of her life interesting. My favorite character was the post-war mother, although with a 5-year-old son myself, I can't imagine leaving.
