Winner of the Pulitzer prize, the Pen/Faulkner Award for Fiction, and nominated for 9 Academy Awards, The Hours is now available on Unabridged CD.Passionate, profound, and deeply moving, The Hours tells the story of three women: Clarissa Vaughan, who one New York morning goes about planning a party in honor of a beloved friend; Laura Brown, who in a 1950s Los Angeles suburb slowly begins to feel the constraints of a perfect family and home; and Virginia Woolf, recuperating with her husband in a London suburb and beginning to write Mrs. Dalloway. By the end of the novel, the stories have intertwined, and finally come together in an act of subtle and haunting grace, demonstrating Michael Cunningham's deep empathy for his characters as well as the extraordinary resonance of his language.
I never saw the movie because I always thought it would be better to read the book. I read the book cuz they made such a big deal outa the movie (yes books can be on my reading list for a LONG TIME!). this was boring. Maybe if I had read mrs Dalloway by Virginia woolf, the book that ties it all together, it would have been more interesting. I got through the whole thing and there wasnít much point. Except for the fact that all the women wanted to sleep with other women. Yes, im aware that there were more weighty, important points but I guess I have sex on the mind.
