The Ramsey family, with house guests, visit the Isle of Skye at least twice. The plot is not at all the point though, as this is a book about how people think and feel.

To the Lighthouse is Virginia Woolf's arresting analysis of domestic family life, centering on the Ramseys and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland in the.

It is. The action, such as it is, takes place in the holiday home of the Ramsay family, on a Hebridean island before and after the great war. Mrs Ramsay is beautiful, Mr Ramsay difficult, their eight children relatively interesting, their house guests more so.

Woolf is all or nothing. She carried me along in the middle section when I was losing my way. And then I got fired up for it again. What the audiobook did was to impose some additional and quite helpful structure on the book.

For example the last four tracks are called In the boat, Perspective, Approaching and Arriving. Whether these ideas actually represented the moral code that governed the real rather than the fictional world is questionable.

Virginia Woolf cared about conventions in literature; she certainly knew them extremely well. The house-guests were some of the greatest names then writing, such as Henry James and George Eliot; relatives were friends of Thomas Carlyle.

But something of the intensity, and something in herself, was too much for Woolf, and her suffering from powerful mood swings was deeply affected by tragic family circumstances. Her half-sister was institutionalised; there are suggestions of abuse from her half-brothers; and the death of her mother in and sister Stella led to the first of her nervous breakdowns.

The second came when her father died in , and required her brief hospitalisation. But this combination of a profound literary background and extreme sensitivity is what led her to search for a new way of expressing things. She recognised that the great novels of the past were able to express profound truths about human nature, but saw also that there was a need for a change.

The story is incredibly difficult to follow and there is no real point to it.

I loved this book from the very beginning. Though hard to follow in places, Virginia Woolf has you from the first page.

To the Lighthouse: Audio Book

To The Lighthouse is a funny, sad, brilliant book that I would recommend to anyone who wants to have a book they will love forever. Loved it.

This is a tour de force of beautiful writing sensitively converted into audio. Juliet' s reading makes the narrative easy to follow and illuminates key passages. Well worth listening to several times. Thank you so much. I was sorry to finish it. The narration was exquisite, it gave life and added even more depth to a masterpiece of English literature.

Her reading is quietly, carefully precise, and that precision is a solid complement to Woolf's own measured, inward-looking prose. More from the same Author Mrs. What members say Average Customer Ratings Overall.

Bonny Utterly absorbing The prose is lyrical, almost surreal, and places you directly in whatever character Woolf is voicing. Griffith Excellent but difficult book What did you like best about this story?

Edward Wonderful Performance Juliet Stevenson does a wonderful job reading this story. James Abraham Atmospheric -- superlative reading by J. Marcela Great book Michael Old Modern Proto-feminist Steam of Consciousness This book is a pleasant stream of consciousness novel with little dialog or story.

Show More. Assia An interesting book An interesting book but not very easy to follow since it is written in the form of "stream of consiousness" or "interior monologue", meaning that the narrator depicts the multitudinous thoughts and feelings which pass through the mind of the characters- but Juliet Stevenson's reading renders the task much easier and even more enjoyable.

Rabbit, Run. She created a new tradition, one with aims as grand as the old one she respected so much, but a new way of addressing them. Or maybe even more now when I'm better equipped to appreciate its slow, uneven progress.
