    Because the English are boring

    I really want to like E.M. Forester. I really do.

    There is no doubting the beauty of the language and he does wonderfully describe locale such as he did in a Passage To India and here in his word pictures of the English countryside.

    And you do get the sense of the times, this story written and set in 1910 and post-Victorian England as carriages are having to yield to motorcars and money and class are being uncomfortably acknowledged and discussed as Europe's industrial and monarchial powers are inching toward inevitable conflict played out among the moneyed set in their parlor chatter and drawing room rebellions.

    This Audiobook version was made more interesting in that it featured a full cast. But I've come to the conclusion that I have nothing but contempt for the idle wealthy, particularly English ones who seem so caught up in both their self importance and insufferable conventions. Were it not for its placement on the Modern Library Top 100, I probably would have avoided it despite its classic nature.

    Like I stated earlier, I want to like Forester, but I've just grown tired of the opinions of upper class English. Because they're boring.

    Stilted and Not Well performed

    Didn’t finish this one. I found the actors too formal and difficult to follow. Nice idea but not well executed.
