This is my second favorite EM Forster novel, with Maurice being my favorite. In my opinion, it is quite interesting how Forster can take the topics he discusses (classism, sexuality, etc) and can make his novels still remain 'proper' in the eyes of critics. He does an amazing job with this novel, bringing to light the ever-present British class system and emperialism that surrounds these characters despite the fact that they travel quite immensely. This is an amazing novel, along with all of his others. I wouldn't miss this read.

"A Room with a View" is a novel not only about the journey to find true love, but also about the difficult decisions a person is faced with when they must decide to either listen to the expectations of others, or their own heart. It is a good book because the reader can relate to the characters. However, there is quite a bit of philosophy, which makes it hard to understand and it is written in nineteenth century style. I had to reread some of the paragraphs to grasp their meaning. Overall, "A Room with a View" is a good novel to read, but the language makes it a lengthy and difficult book to understand.
