4.0 out of 5 stars A tale of two cities and a country house, 22 Jan 2001
This review is from: A Room with a View (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
I'm not sure what prompted me to read this, but whatever it was, I'm very glad it did. Both the opening chapters set in Italy and the latter ones at Windy Corner depict a beautiful scene with a bond between Lucy and George to match, and you can immediately sense that this is one which is not going to be broken by some stuffy pseudo-aristocrat. Lucy's troubles are excellently captured by a surprisingly intuitive Forster, as is George's down-to-earth sensitivity, but the most intriguing part has to be your view of Charlotte after the last page has been read: who is the real Charlotte? Whatever your view of this, the book proves delightful and in many ways provocative: a joy to read.
