Book log: E.M. Forster – A Room With a View

book 13)

There are plenty of good detailed reviews on LibraryThing, so I’ll simply note that it’s a simple enough story on the surface, but beautifully told and crammed with careful social observation and commentary. And while Forster pokes fun at some of his characters, he’s careful not to make them cardboard stereotypes. Romance, coming-of-age, comedy, satire — the book is all these things and does them very well indeed.
