To the Lighthouse is Virginia Woolf's most accomplished novel, and her most autobiographical. It tells of one summer spent by the Ramsay family and their friends in their holiday home in Scotland. Offshore stands the lighthouse, remote, inaccessbile, an eternal presence in a changing wolrd. A projected visit to the lighthouse forms the heart of this extraordinary novel which, through the minds of the various characters, explores the nature of time, memory, transience and eternity. The style has the clarity of a diamond which shimmers in the mind, making To the Lighthouse one of the most unforgettable novels of the twentieth century. Download and start listening now!

    " What beautiful, lyrical, breathtaking writing. This woman was a genius who molded English language into masterpieces of art. I am not usually one to go gaga over such a writing style, but Virginia Woolf has got me hooked. "

    " Beautiful thoughts and mind-reading. A bit too long and too unconcrete at times, for my taste, though. "

    " Read it again and finally got it (I think!) -- she really is the finest of writers. "

    " Once I got past the initial confusion of whose thoughts we were experiencing at any given time, I really enjoyed it. As I read, I really felt I began to know the characters as people, represented by their own good and bad perceptions of themselves, and the good and bad perceptions of the other characters. I've been thinking a great deal about the concept of "seeing" lately, and the character of Lily Briscoe really "opened my eyes" (excuse the pun and cliche) to a new way of seeing and thinking about people. The whole story was really fascinating, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading fiction closely (otherwise it's easier to be confused with her style). "
