I have to say that romance, when done right, is definitely a good thing.

Sad to say the mood of the book is dark (hopelessness comes to mind). Umpisa pa lang suicide na - actually theres two. I would not recommend reading it if your feeling low. I like the book structure though - split narrative (fits to my style of reading), and the stream of conciousness kind of writing. Its a day in a life drama.
Its the story of 3 women: Virginia Woolf (1920s), Clarissa Vaughan - aka Mrs Dalloway (90s), Laura Brown (40s). Somehow at the end of the novel they'll get tie- in together.
You have to marvel Michael Cunningham on how he can write about the conciousness of the 3 female protagonists.

I was tempted to stop reading halfway (depressing kasi) but was curios on how their lives would intersect. Clueless till the last chapter.
