Captivating Narration.

This is my first time going through this novel, so I don't feel ready to comment on its content (I must let it sink in first). However, this narration was perfect. It's not easy to find such a heartfelt dramatization.

I definitely recommend it.

Still Applies to Today

What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Dalloway the most enjoyable?

Phyllida Law was a fantastic narrator for Mrs. Dalloway. Her reading of it made the novel flow perfectly and she helped me understand more of the novel because of her expert reading.


What did you like best about this story?

Mrs. Dalloway could still be applied today. The characters are so relatable and their problems are common. This novel tells a beautiful tale of life as we all know it and the trials we go through.


Which character – as performed by Phyllida Law – was your favorite?

My favorite character as performed by Phyllida Law was Clarissa Dalloway. Clarissa seems at first to be a simple character but due to the reading by Phyllida Law we are able to see much more of the complications in Clarissa's life.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
