Civilized prose infused with raw emotions. The characters are multi-dimensional, as are their motives, which makes for a fascinating read

A terrific audiobook to listen to. Very funny.

Enjoyable read. The movie is worth watching too.

Last week, a man sitting next to me on a plane asked me if this was the first time I had read this book - and I thought, hey I like you because you are as nosy as me checking out what everyone else is reading. I had already taken note of his book as well. Imagine how wonderful to have read all the great books and had time to go back and read the best over again. I love Forster, but don't think I'll revisit this book.

A beautifully written account of British Imperialism in India in the 1920's. Forster's writing is wonderful, but I prefered his A Room with a View--much more humour there.
