"[An] inspired book whose scene is a South Americana not found on any map,
reached by a boat which would not float on any sea, an Americana whose spiritual boundaries
touch Xanadu and Atlantis"--E. M. Forster

"For all its tragic interest, The Voyage Out is not low-keyed; it even has a slight buoyancy
of tone, as if clear perception itself brought a continual zest to its writer. Woolf has the diversity of
power which makes the great writer of narrative."--New Republic

First published in 1915, The Voyage Out marked the literary debut of one of the great pioneers
of the modern novel. Virginia Woolf's extraordinary debut follows a group of lively, eccentric British
tourists embarking on a sea voyage from London to South America. Among them is Rachel Vinrace,
a shy, motherless young woman who has been taken along under the wing of her aunt Helen that she
may learn "how to live".

The narrative shifts focus between its heroine and the peripheral characters with their chorus of viewpoints.
For Rachel, the voyage becomes a journey toward intellectual and emotional maturity. Arriving in Santa
Marina, a village on the South American coast, Rachel is introduced to a group of English expatriates,
among them the sensitive young Terence Hewet, an aspiring writer with whom she falls into a doomed
romance.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cant do that as much as wed like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Its a common problem and its the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
