    Mrs. Dalloway, perhaps Virginia Woolf’s greatest novel, vividly follows English socialite Clarissa Dalloway as she prepares for a party in post-World War I London. Four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening (American Beauty, The Kids Are All Right) brings Woolf’s stream-of-consciousness style of storytelling to life, exploring the hidden springs of thought and action in one day of a woman’s life in a brilliant performance.

    What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Dalloway the most enjoyable?

    Annette Bening's performance of this classic book was masterful and so reflects the complex themes and beauty of Woolf's words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mrs. Dalloway?

    Her description of the descent into madness of one of the characters is so precise that it allows the reader to follow him into his vortex with complete understanding.


    What does Annette Bening bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is so perfectly modulated, she is such a pro....I often don't finish books on tape because the narrator's voice often becomes annoying. Not so with this performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end, when the point of view suddenly changes to Richard Dalloway, and so much more is revealed.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended, will purchase anything else narrated by Bening, and written by Woolf.
