Description

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.

Masterful

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

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This work, often dismissed as an "early" effort, not yet up to Woolf's "mature" accomplishments, is a transcendent fusion of literary artistry and psychological insight. Woolf is without peer in describing a scene of a number of characters, each with his or her own concerns and thoughts, viewing the world through the filters of their own experience. She paints with words the subtleties of thought and emotion the way Monet paints light. This is not a book of "action" or "plot development" in the customary sense. Even "character development" seems too crude a phrase to describe a process by which characters come to the verge of a deeper understanding of themselves, and occasionally each other. In Woolf's world, the gulfs that separate individuals are perilous and largely uncrossable, though the characters may reach out to each other as best they can. It is a world of simultaneous beauty and pathos, transcendence and banality, simultaneously modernist and classical.Juliet Stevenson reads with a clarity of character rendition that matches the prose. She imbues the characters with personality liveliness, even the most minor, and captures the characteristically internal action of the book with luminous understanding.

Wonderful reader

Juliet Stevens has a beautiful voice and reads expressively but with restraint. Just right for this novel.

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!

surprising

a simple story of human interaction rendered with all of the grandeur and insipidity of all of us. A precise and powerfully moving rendition of our natures.
Juliet Stevenson did credit to the writing with every shaped syllable spoken. Brava!
