    All the Lives We Ever Lived is an evocative portrait of the deep bond between the author and her dynamic, difficult father. It is an exploration of her overwhelming grief at his death. In her struggle to communicate the complexity of that experience, Smyth turns to Virginia Woolf, to t...

    I won this book as a giveaway. It?s an alright read. It?s a memoir where the author compares her life to Virginia Woolf life as well as her Lighthouse novel. The author clearly shows comparisons and the book is a nice and easy read. I can see someone loving this book while others m...

    https://wordpress.com/post/booksnooks... Beautiful. This book is a breathtaking tribute to life, love, and literature. Since the age of twenty, Katharine Smyth has been enamored with the book To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. In All the Lives We Ever Lived, she blurs the line bet...

    I had high expectations for this book and that's probably what made me so disappointed. Where I waited for an intelligent memoir on the works of Virginia Woolf and reflections for comfort in reading her, I found a family story where a young woman completely subjugated by her father tel...

    This book is about the author?s relationship with her father and her relationship with her favorite book TO THE LIGHTHOUSE by Virginia Woolf. It is also about grief and the intensity of a parent-child relationship. I should state I have not read To The Lighthouse yet, but I want to ...

    I was attracted by the synopsis, and I started reading the book. One definite pro: it made me want to read again To the lighthouse.. Initially I really liked the story, a comparison of sorts between the memories of Virginia Woolf, and those of Katharine's and the summer she spent in h...

    ALL THE LIVES WE EVER LIVED by Oxford University graduate Katharine Smyth is a beautiful and illuminating book on grief. Katharine uses Virginia Woolf's TO THE LIGHTHOUSE as a beacon to help understand the death of her father. This book is a keeper, to be read over and over. ...

    An exceptional read. ...

    All the Lives We Ever Lived is an evocative portrait of the deep bond between the author and her dynamic, difficult father. It is an exploration of her overwhelming grief at his death. In her struggle to communicate the complexity of that experience, Smyth turns to Virginia Woolf, to t...

    I won this book as a giveaway. It?s an alright read. It?s a memoir where the author compares her life to Virginia Woolf life as well as her Lighthouse novel. The author clearly shows comparisons and the book is a nice and easy read. I can see someone loving this book while others m...

    How does one even go about rating and reviewing the memoirs of another? Something I had never previously had occasion to ask myself. What I will say is that I appreciate the author making To the Lighthouse and Virginia Woolf accessible. I had tried to read Lighthouse previously, beca...

    The death of her father has left Katharine pondering about her life and the people playing major roles in it. Amongst them is not only her family but also Virginia Woolf whose works deeply impressed her when she was a student at Oxford. The parallels between ?To the Lighthouse? and...

    This wasn't the one normal books I read but it was pretty good. I read it in one setting I recommend that anyone should check it out get out of your comfort zone, Some of the book made me think of my own father so I related well to this. Was well written ...

    All the Lives We Ever Lived is a part memoir and a part record of research about the author?s readings of her favorite book To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. Katharine Smyth wrote of growing up as an only child along with the cancer and eventual death of her father while compari...

    https://wordpress.com/post/booksnooks... Beautiful. This book is a breathtaking tribute to life, love, and literature. Since the age of twenty, Katharine Smyth has been enamored with the book To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. In All the Lives We Ever Lived, she blurs the line bet...

    I had high expectations for this book and that's probably what made me so disappointed. Where I waited for an intelligent memoir on the works of Virginia Woolf and reflections for comfort in reading her, I found a family story where a young woman completely subjugated by her father tel...

    This book is about the author?s relationship with her father and her relationship with her favorite book TO THE LIGHTHOUSE by Virginia Woolf. It is also about grief and the intensity of a parent-child relationship. I should state I have not read To The Lighthouse yet, but I want to ...

    I was attracted by the synopsis, and I started reading the book. One definite pro: it made me want to read again To the lighthouse.. Initially I really liked the story, a comparison of sorts between the memories of Virginia Woolf, and those of Katharine's and the summer she spent in h...

    "Perhaps there is one book for every life." Perhaps this will be the most important book I could have read this year. I learned of my mother's terminal cancer in August of last year and it's been muddled thoughts that swim in frazzle ever since. However, I feel as if I'm just a litt...

    ALL THE LIVES WE EVER LIVED by Oxford University graduate Katharine Smyth is a beautiful and illuminating book on grief. Katharine uses Virginia Woolf's TO THE LIGHTHOUSE as a beacon to help understand the death of her father. This book is a keeper, to be read over and over. ...

    An exceptional read. ...
