Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alisa | 2/20/2014

    " Man, I feel like a jerk for not liking this book. There WERE several moments where the writing was captivating, in particular the section where the perspective shifts to an impersonal one and the decline of the unoccupied house is described. But I had a hard time finishing it, and never felt really involved in the story or the characters. Maybe I'll try it again in a few years, at a time when I am more in the mood to read a book that requires thought and patience. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jesper | 2/20/2014

    " Actually, so awful that I have never quite managed to completely finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 2/11/2014

    " Beautiful words on relationships, purpose, beauty, love. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 1/26/2014

    " this is a classic?? i couldnt even tell you what it is about after having read it...i wanted to stop reading it soo many times.....it reminded me of being in some womens head and listening to her rambling thoughts, no thanks, got my own ramblings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marius Hancu | 1/18/2014

    " The difference between the materially-minded and the soulfully-minded, if such term exist:-) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 timo0o | 1/17/2014

    " i disliked the non-dialogue style! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindyjo | 1/11/2014

    " I did not warm to any of the characters in this novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frankie Massa | 1/11/2014

    " Oh, I did not expect this! I have tried older books and have not liked them, but this book was so wonderful. It was confusing, but written in the most beautiful way. And the saddest ending, but happiest in another way. This is now right up there with some of my favorite books. Please, do read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erika | 1/8/2014

    " Virginia Woolf never fails to amaze me, so I will probably never give a bad review of her work. In this book, she plods the reader along and then wow! She kills it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 12/10/2013

    " My first Woolfe book and I was hooked. She is great! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison Junkans | 12/6/2013

    " I did not really enjoy this book. However, I did appreciate the writing and I'm glad I read this classic. I used Sparknotes to assist me with the analysis of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra | 11/30/2013

    " I particularly enjoyed the interpersonal perceptions and poetic imagery employed by Woolf. The reading was somewhat difficult because she jumps from one character's perceptions to another without indication of whose mind you're in at the moment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 11/22/2013

    " One of my all time favorite books.. love it so much it's half my thesis :-)) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Wetherholt | 11/19/2013

    " This was a very difficult book to read. I read it for an AP Literature class in high school, and because I owned the book, I took notes in the book. I am really grateful that I stuck with this book because it was incredibly well written and had a wonderful story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Penido | 9/18/2013

    " One of the best novels ever written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary Lang Greenebaum | 12/17/2012

    " I want to read this again and more of her work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chrismcginn | 8/1/2012

    " I haven't read Woolf since college. Thick reading but still in awe of her ability. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 7/4/2012

    " One of the craftiest, most psychologically honest, and thus harrowing, reading experiences I've ever had. Can't recommend enough. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Oostveen | 1/23/2012

    " Good book but confusing at times if you're not used to stream of consciousness writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlotte | 9/14/2011

    " Very different to anything I've ever read before but absolutely teeming with vivid descriptions and imagery. Overall an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niraj Kumar | 7/26/2011

    " in the initial phase of reading this, i hated it because it was just very slow and monotonous. but as one gets habituated with the style of writing, one gets to know the marvel that woolf has created by beautifully picturizing the thoughts of every character in the novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 5/24/2011

    " Sometimes I go back to this book just to read the last 1/3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielroffle | 5/13/2011

    " I remember this feeling fresh, and something about a woman with chinese eyes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amie | 5/7/2011

    " A favorite for a long long time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 5/7/2011

    " Had to read this in high school and strongly disliked it. Woolf's writing style is so hard to be interested in. Weak plot, slow read, not recommended unless you really like Virginia Woolf. Maybe since I had to read it for a class, I was less engaged in it. I wouldn't have read it on my own time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary | 4/20/2011

    " I found the writing style hard to get used to – and even after it became somewhat familiar it never became easy. However, it is fairly rewarding in the end. And relatively short. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristi | 4/17/2011

    " I am not a big fan of modernism style. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 S.K. | 4/15/2011

    " Such supple craft and prose that the work can only be called a thing of beauty. Utmost excellence and profundity —— the most beautiful book in the world. "
