Book report #22 (2017)

Howard’s End, by EM Forster. Pub 1910

I didn’t enjoy this book much – I found several sections to be a real slog to get through. I had a similar experience with A Room With a View a few years ago. There are a few sections where Forster reverts to almost a sly commentary about the lives of his characters, and the implied sarcasm or condescension, combined with the editorializing on current affairs, was unpleasantly distracting. Like A Room, I enjoyed the film version of this novel much more.

7. A book written by a male author.

9. A book that has been a film.

14. A book with someone’s name in the title.

17. A book with a place name in the title.
