Publisher's Summary

Virginia Woolf's semi-biographical novel, inspired by her life changing love affair with Vita Sackville-West, takes us on an exhilarating, fantastical roller coaster, tracing 400 years of English history, in the company of her shape-shifting, gender-bending, time-travelling hero Orlando, whose inner conflicts and triumphs challenge our preconceptions of the nature of love, the battle of the sexes, posing socal and metaphysical questions including what we now call climate change.

I really, really don't get it...

Oh dear. My first - and definitely last - Virginia Wolfe. Somewhere buried in all that self indulgent, over decorative, utterly redundant screed of endless verbiage is hidden a half decent story. But, oh Lord, it's hard work getting to it and concentrating for long enough on the diversions to track what's actually happening. If there was a point to this, it's completely passed me by. I've listened right to the end - but had to speed the pace up to stop myself turning completely insane. And I still have absolutely no idea what she was trying to say. Sorry VW, but life's too short for this kind of exercise!

Speechless

To say speechless and then find something to say ! An astounding piece of literature though I don't think I could have got through it without Juliet Stevenson's brilliant reading.
