Average Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5.
A Passage to India

Item Details

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) Britain's three-hundred-year relationship with the Indian subcontinent produced much fiction of interest but only one indisputable masterpiece: E. M. Forster's A Passage to India , published in 1924, at the height of the Indian independence movement. Centering on an ambiguous incident between a young Englishwoman of uncertain stability and an Indian doctor eager to know his conquerors better, Forster's book explores, with unexampled profundity, both the historical chasm between races and the eternal one between individuals struggling to ease their isolation and make sense of their humanity.

Last week, a man sitting next to me on a plane asked me if this was the first time I had read this book - and I thought, hey I like you because you are as nosy as me checking out what everyone else is reading. I had already taken note of his book as well. Imagine how wonderful to have read all the great books and had time to go back and read the best over again. I love Forster, but don't think I'll revisit this book.

A beautifully written account of British Imperialism in India in the 1920's. Forster's writing is wonderful, but I prefered his A Room with a View--much more humour there.
