Description

The novel centres, in a very ambiguous way, around the life story of the protagonist Jacob Flanders, and is presented entirely by the impressions other characters have of Jacob (except for those times when we do indeed get Jacob's perspective). Thus, although it could be said that the book is primarily a character study and has little in the way of plot or background, the narrative is constructed as a void in place of the central character, if indeed the novel can be said to have a 'protagonist' in conventional terms.

Professional reviews

"JACOBÕS ROOM, a classic modernist text, is more about language and the art of fiction than it is actually a story, which means the narrator has to be as alive to the pleasure of the exact right word as a thriller narrator is to the power of a car bomb. Juliet Stevenson is a perfect actor for the challenge. Her voice is lovely, her diction clean and precise, and she is so sensitive to nuance, to the rhythm of WoolfÕs sentences, that she communicates her own excitement at WoolfÕs achievement in a way that delights and even instructs. There is much beauty here, owing equally to WoolfÕs art and StevensonÕs, and the ending is indelibly moving. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
