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.
