    Young Lucy Honeychurch is at a defining moment in her life. She is torn between what she perceives to be expected of her and what she really wants, which is true love. Cecil is a supercilious, pompous snob, who clearly believes himself to be superior to all those around him. He wants Lucy as an ornament, a possession, his own 'Leonardo'. George is open, affectionate and idealistic, he wants Lucy because he loves her. E M Forster's classic novel is a beautifully written observation on class, social manners, social boundaries and a young girl's awakening from a sheltered life. His writing style is witty, poetic and intimate, often engaging the reader with personal asides. The characters are all well drawn, with individual foibles which either endear themselves to the reader, or irritate: either way they involve the reader emotionally. As a novel written at the beginning of the 20th century, where society was emerging from strict Victorian values into a new Edwardian world, it paints a picture of society at a time of change. It is definitely worth a read.

    I bought a copy of this - my favourite EM Forster on discovering that although I've read the book several times the edition I had read was my late mothers and I must have given that copy to a niece for her impending A levels. Delightful to return after a long pause to a well loved friend. What more is there to say?

  • By Victoria Field on 17 January 2015

    I expected something much more sentimental (blame Merchant Ivory) but the novel is sharp, witty,ironic and equivocal. Something is rushed about the resolution with the gnomic Mr Emerson revealing the truth about love and the spectre of cousin Charlotte looming ... but this is really a light, in a good way, critique of society with an erotic undercurrent throughout.

    Had seen the film many times, but never read the book. They are frighteningly close both in content, style and use of language. I am a big Forster fan, so liked this written version very much. I would recommend it as an example of the transitional period from Victorian to 20th century behaviour in polite society. It continues to stand the test of time

  • By S A Dreksler on 27 July 2015

    I chose this book because I was going on holiday to Italy and I wanted something that would link into my destination. I haven't read EM Forster for years but now I remember how much I loved his books. This is a great love story with superb characters. It brings out the class conscious conceit that prevailed at the time. In particular the lack of empathy for those deemed to be of a lower social standing is almost shocking by today's standards. Humorous and moving.

  • By SLH on 24 July 2015

    I adore this book and have read it over and over again. Every character is a gem and every incident a delightful little drama. It's not often I enjoy a romantic tale told by a man but this one I do.

  • By Guest on 26 May 2017

    I wish to make a comment about the audible narration. I did not think that this was of the highest quality in terms of delivery, pronunciation etc. I have heard much better. I know the book and am perfectly happy with all other aspects of it.

  • By Combat Wombat on 4 July 2016

    I found this to have aged quite nicely. The portrait of the players survive s the passage of time and the gentle abuse of the class system and ^decent behaviour^ continues to do entertain.
