Publisher's Summary

The Voyage Out is Virginia Woolf's haunting tale about a naïve young woman's sea voyage from London to a small resort on the South American coast. In symbolic, lyrical, and intoxicating prose, her outward journey begins to mirror her internal voyage into adulthood as she searches for her personal identity, grapples with love, and learns how to face life intellectually and emotionally. Its wit and exquisiteness and its profound depth and insight into humanity will capture the imagination of the listener.

Engaging

The story is engaging, nonetheless a bit confusing as many characters disappeared and the end was cute abrupt, but you can feel that Virginia Woolf was experimenting in this amazing first novel of hers. The narration is impeccable!

Masterful

A very slow build, as is Woolf's wont, but a deeply satisfying, hypnotic story. Stevenson's narration is pitch perfect.
