"Clare Higgins's supple, silky voice does justice to Woolf's literary landmark. The language of Orlando, peppered with alliterative phrases, flows effortlessly with perfect pacing by Higgins, and Woolf's dry wit shines through her performance." (AudioFile)
I believe 'one should' read Virginia Woolf and this was a painless way to peruse her thoughts and views expressed in fiction. It was maybe to highbrow for me, though, and a relief when it was done.
I kept thinking the story was going to get better but it never did.
The narrator was somewhat boring.
No reaction besides wasting time & credit.
This book has classic - must read status. I don't believe it deserves this distinction. Clearly it was controversial subject matter when it was written. And the premise of the book is interesting. But mostly it's just boring and a big waste of time. But I'm not an academic or a scholar so I could be completely wrong. I had to struggle to listen to this book to the end. I read the SparkNotes for the story and tried to get into it and to understand the characters and the story. It just didn't work for me.
I'm a little fish in a medium pond.

If ever you would tire from listening to what is arguably very lovely prose, it would be listening to this book. I found myself talking to the player begging the narrator to get on with the story -which turned out to not be one.
