Classic Novels, Ranked in Order of How Easy They Are to Study



To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse is a dense, stream-of-consciousness STRUGGLE that left my brain in shambles. It’s GOOD, don’t get me wrong—AMAZING, even—but Woolf just kind of throws you right into the thick of it and doesn’t bother explaining anything until you’re already 50 pages in. To really appreciate this Modernist take on the psychology of the human mind, you’ve got to read it twice (or maybe three times, just to be safe).
