Originally written in the late 1920's, Orlando is the fascinating and fantastic tale of an aristocratic writer and observer whose life spans several centuries. This complex story of androgyny is marvelously narrated by Laura Paton. Her velvet voice lusciously conveys Woolf's lavish and sensual prose. This audiobook is performed with unusual clarity due to Paton's unhurried delivery. Her measured, careful pace makes each word stand out. She's an excellent storyteller and her well-crafted performance makes this an outstanding listening experience. Selections from Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven and Ravel add to the enjoyment.
