    "Captivating Narration."

    This is my first time going through this novel, so I don't feel ready to comment on its content (I must let it sink in first). However, this narration was perfect. It's not easy to find such a heartfelt dramatization.

    I definitely recommend it.

    I am a literature nerd and love to read. I am hoping that audiobooks will allow me to continue my literature intake.

    Story
    "Still Applies to Today"
    What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Dalloway the most enjoyable?

    Phyllida Law was a fantastic narrator for Mrs. Dalloway. Her reading of it made the novel flow perfectly and she helped me understand more of the novel because of her expert reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mrs. Dalloway could still be applied today. The characters are so relatable and their problems are common. This novel tells a beautiful tale of life as we all know it and the trials we go through.


    Which character – as performed by Phyllida Law – was your favorite?

    My favorite character as performed by Phyllida Law was Clarissa Dalloway. Clarissa seems at first to be a simple character but due to the reading by Phyllida Law we are able to see much more of the complications in Clarissa's life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "A bore then a snore..."

    While I really wanted to love it, about half way through, I start using it as a sleep aid..... It worked.

    "Enjoyable surprise"

    One day, and what a day! All seems serene, but there is a wealth of passion and event. You do need to be skilled in reading/listening between the lines, and if not, this will be an excellent exercise. I expected to have to draw on my patience to listen to this book, but instead found that I was always impatient to get back to it. Phylida Law knows exactly how to narrate this amazing book.
