Orlando
Orlando A Biography By Woolf, Virginia Book - 2006

Challenging but rewarding in parts.

The chapters are long. The setting/time period are sometimes hard to pin down.

Once Orlando's gender changes halfway through things get more interesting - as Orlando thinks about the ways that her life has changed as a woman.

There is also a heightened level of comedy at this point in the story - as the other characters barely react to the change.

This is a book which felt most engaging at its center.

Read it if you're in the mood for some magical realism or gender discourse
