I wouldn’t say “I like E.M. Forster a lot” because I was not thrilled by his other books, it’s just that Howards End was really good.
I usually have trouble with English novels because the whole ‘class’ thing is so beyond/behind me. Everybody says Evelyn Waugh is great, but I tried his books a number of times, and gave up mid-way. It’s clever, but not haha funny. I can’t comment on Henry James because it’s too dense for me. I have a feeling it’s really good, but I just don’t get it. But Howard’s End was so surprisingly ‘modern’; I felt throughout the entire book, ‘wow, this is really good and exciting.’
More after the break…(I hope I’m doing it right, first time…)
