Some of the imagery and symbolism is simply stunning. I love the use of skull and its transformation into a nest. The other thing that really just took my breath away whenever I encountered it was the way Woolf shows how our actual moments of connection with people can be both fleeting and few. My favourite instance of this is with Mr and Mrs Ramsay discussing Andrew's prospects of a scholarship: "They disagreed always about this, but it did not matter. She liked him to believe in scholarships, and he liked her to be proud of Andrew whatever he did." Great read but not light; it requires attention.
