A Room with a View by E.M. Forster

A Room with a View by E.M. Forster

A whimsical comedy of manners that owes more to Jane Austen that perhaps any other of his works. The central character is a muddled young girl named Lucy Honeychurch, who runs away from the man who stirs her emotions, remaining engaged to a rich snob.
Forster considered it his 'nicest' novel, and today it remains probably his most well liked. Its moral is utterly simple. Throw away your etiquette book and listen to your heart.

    As I looked at this travel article about technology changing the way we travel, I couldn't help thinking about our heroine from Room with a View. There is even an app to tell you what to take photos of and another app to tell you where to stand to get a particular image of you with the famous place(like holding up the tower of Pisa).

    I'm looking forward to tomorrow night to hear what others thought of this book. It was a struggle for me because the characters were not that interesting to me. It picked up toward the end as Lucy realized to be true to her newly discovered spirit. I'm not sure about the meeting of two older character toward the few last pages. I'll know there names for tomorrow

    I hope to get my college-son to read it, and then discuss it together, since I can't make it this week~

    Thanks for hosting this!

    Unfortunately I have to miss another great meeting. I am chairing library board meetings for our new building. I will be at the Mockingbird group and hope to be back regularly soon.
