Orlando - Virginia Woolf Reading 'Orlando' was a rather ambivalent experience for me. I really hated it sometimes... but I also not-really-hated-it some others. All in all, the plot is not very interesting and too fluctuating, but I enjoyed the way it was written and the imagery I got from it. Sadly, I didn't like any of the characters in the story, not a single one, which is a first for me.
