Publisher's Summary

Orlando is one of the most unforgettable creations of twentieth-century literature. He emerges as a young man at the court of Queen Elizabeth I and progresses, with breathtaking ease, through three centuries until, by now a woman, she arrives in the bustle and diversion of the 1920's.

For Virginia Woolf, a leading figure of the Bloomsbury Group, Orlando was more than a fantastic flight of imagination. It was a roman à clef, a love letter for her lover, the charismatic, eccentric, bisexual Vita Sackville West. Orlando's journey, from wondrous youth barbed by love, to feted writer, settled in her femininity, is a wild and curiously relevant fable for our times.

so many unanswered questions

As the story continued on, questions kept coming up about the plot and reasons for certain things, but none ever came. I'm sure it was intentional. but I feel like it made it too frustrating to enioy the story.

THIS IS NOT THE FULL UNABRIDGED VERSION !!!!

I was really unhappy to find out that this audiobook had full sentences cut out. It is a shortened version of the original novel. I would not be mad if they just told us in the description or the title that it is an abridged version. But that's not the case. 1 star should be 0 out of 5. :(
