A Room with a View - E.M.Forster

A Room with a View wasn't at all what I was expecting it to be. Lighthearted and funny it was a far cry from the tedium that for some reason, and I have no explanation, I was expecting.

The wit produced by Forster in this novel is subtle and produced by the use of stereotypical Caricatures, for various groups of the great british public. It was brilliant that before I'd finished the first page I could envisage what characters looked like, what they were, and most of all what they sounded like.

It was a brilliant novel and I can see why it has it's place on the list of Classics everyone should read.

Next on the list; Fanny Hill - John Cleland
