Review by Citizenjoyce
This audiobook consists of five short stories: The Garden Party and The Daughters of the Late Colonel by Katherine Mansfield; Ma'ame Pelagie and Lilacs by Kate Chopin; and The Mark on the Wall by Virginia Woolf. For me Kate Chopin's were the least successful, at least they made the least impression on me, but Katherine Mansfield swept me away into the lives of her characters and everything about Woolf's Mark on the Wall was magical. Through the musings of her character sitting in a chair just noticing a strange round mark on the wall Woolf is able to digress into thoughts about civilization, nature, war, whether there is an essential right or wrong, the meaning of life and the necessity or non necessity of action. Recommended to anyone wanting to get a taste of these famous women writers.
