Jacob's RoomeBook - 2005
Perhaps the best read as a companion to Woolf's long anti-war essay Three guineas, this novel employs the conventions of a bildüngsroman to develop the expectations of a promising young man, only to pull them out from under him. Woolf illustrates what happens when a young man is denied the opportunity to excel and is instead sent to war. This book also serves as an elegy for the missing generation lost in the trenches of World War I.
