Split into three parts, the story observes Mrs. Ramsay, Mr. Ramsey, and their children at their vacation house on the Isle of Skye. While the novel follows seemingly trivial events between the family members, the plot takes a backseat to philosophical introspection, which gave the novel its fame as an icon of modernist literature. The Ramseys' quest to recapture meaning creates a powerful allegory of man’s impermanent battle with the tangible world.

Wonderful combination of text and narrator
To the Lighthouse is one of Virginia Wolf's best novels, which is to say it is one of the great novels of the 20th Century. Nicole Kidman's narration catches the complexity and intelligence of Wolf's novel, without showy excesses. This is a remarkable audio book.

I had a hard time with this
Any additional comments?
Nicole Kidman does a fantastic job, but boy oh boy that stream of consciousness style is HARD to listen to! I was exhausted. I had to put this aside. I didn't finish. Maybe for another time or possibly listened to in short bursts.
Good luck out there.
