I wasn't expecting a great work but thought I ought to listen before I see the film. I loved the pace. I was gripped and wanted more.
Appalling quality and therefore nonsensical. How this got onto audible is beyond me... there is clearly no quality control!
This is an outstanding pieces of literature. I came to this title by accident following a audible recommendation link from a previous title, The Time Travellers Wife by Audrey Niffeneggar.
This voyage through life and time is superb. Humorous, intense and subtle. He, then she, Orlando, touches, brushes and grasps each era from the 16th to the 20th century. An imaginative classic, this work is accessible and highly recommended!
This is a voyage within. The author is calm and natural in her delivery. I have found other meditations to be somewhat dogmatic in their approach, this is not.
Felt the first half was a little slow but once I arrived at the family Christmas I had became totally drawn into the intimacy of the relationship. Well worth a listen.
I had my reservations. I thought it might be a bit old, a bit flakey.. dare I say a bit passe... HOW WRONG WAS I??
This has to be one of the best books I have downloaded (and I'm a 26yo man!)The magical imagery really took me somewhere I haven't been for sixteen years.
Yep shes peeved. The American left have wound this woman up something chronic. This book is a catalogue of stories interlinked by the authors insight of what she saw from the inside (as a feminst lesbian activist) of what she describes as the corrupt and morally bankrupt left liberals of America.
Full of venom and bite, in some ways this book is like a prolonged Daily Mail article. The kind that makes you want to give the world a kick up the behind.
There is a great deal of sarcastic humour, some of the incidents described made me howl (and cringe) - like the distasteful episode of the college art student who passed his course by defacating infront of an audience (it was art).
Other stories made my blood boil, with a particularly brutual description of an horrific murder and the black rights activists support of the perpetrator.
I liked this book. In our morally realtive and religion free times, it is a refreshing stamp of what is right and what went wrong.
To be honest I am struggling with this. It just seems to go on and on. I wish that it would just get to the point but it creeps around this winding road which (yes confusingly) changes between dirt track and highway.
Being fair I like the setting in medieval France. The construction of the imagery is impressive. However with another 15 hours to go... I have just purchased another book and am leaving the tales of Alice and Aliece for now.
