Virginia Leishman gives a fine performance of this audiobook. Virginia Woolf's novel captures a day in the title character's life and intersperses throughout that day Clarissa Dalloway's stream-of-consciousness reminiscences. The novel can be difficult to follow at times, but hearing it performed aids in comprehension. Leishman's crisp voice goes far in lending direction to challenging prose and adding interest to moments that at first seem insignificant. Mrs. Dalloway is a woman on the verge of the next stage of her life, and hearing the novel performed offers the reader a glimpse into the fears, hopes, and inevitable changes that next stage will certainly bring.
