A wonderful read...

by LincB on Oct 11, 2009

This was the first book I've read by EM Forster. I found it a bit difficult to get into at the beginning, in part because the language was different, and also because it had a slow start; but once a few pages in, it flowed unlike any book I've ever read before. I recently returned from a trip to Tuscany, and I could clearly see the scenes he was depicting, and it took me back to that little village I, myself, was in only a few months ago. The characters seemed a bit hollow to begin with, but, as the story went on, their intricacies emerged and they grew into people that I couldn't help but empathize with. My heart broke with theirs and sang, too, with their joy. A very enjoyable read, I would recommend this book to anyone.
