Publisher's Summary

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 early 1900s. Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge, Eyes Wide Shut), who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Woolf in the film adaptation of Michael Cunningham’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Hours, brings the impressionistic prose of this classic to vibrant life.

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.

To The Lighthouse

There is pain and beauty in each sentence - and that I think is the beauty of Woolf’s work. Yes the critics called it ‘Stream of Consciousness’ but it is more -
it is reliving memories, it is revisiting moments of life, it is like remembering life in its full truth and vagueness at the same time.

And by the end of the novel you can’t stop but murmur TS Eliot’s lines “there will be time , there will be time”.
As this book ends - I feel as if I bidding good bye to a dear friend , and my eyes a filled with tears. It was an experience I shall always remember, my first audio book .
I want really thank Nicole Kidman for that narration , it brought everything to life . It was real and beautiful - amazing work Team Audible .
