A Room With A View
A Room With A View | E.M. Forster
A Room with a View is a defining romantic tale of one woman's life in a repressed Edwardian England. The novel focuses on social and political issues of the day, especially between conservative and radical thinking. This is embodied in the differences between the Medieval-minded characters Mr. Beebe, Miss Bartlett, and Cecil Vyse, and the Renaissance-minded character Lucy. Her character struggles with what society expects from women, compared to what she truly wants out of life. Should she marry the stuffy high class Cecil Vyse? Or should she follow her own heart and get with intelligent, yet broke George Emerson? A Room with a View is Forster's most romantic and lighthearted novels, but it's still a brilliant work of art. For a "lighter" read, Forster still packs in an amazing amount of detail. You will certainly find something new each time you read this gem. It was ranked number 79 by the Modern Library on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

3. An accidental date (when he asked me, it sounded like it was a group of people going to a play together) with a very socially awkward math grad student. We went to see a production of Medea on campus at Stanford—it turned out to be a lesbian retelling, complete with an onstage sex scene in the middle of the play. 🤭 A w k w a r d.

My current audiobook. I‘m not a big fun so far and find myself thinking about other things frequently during it. I‘ve been wanting to read more classics but find that I don‘t focus on them well on audio. Maybe I need to actually read them rather than listen to them but that‘ll have to wait until I catch up on my #NetGalley #ARCs.

Moony Oh yes I know this problem. 😑 4mo
Buechersuechtling @IvoryLunatic @Moony Funny that it‘s this way for you. I found out that it‘s exactly the other way 'round for me. I can handle classics better/easier when I „read“ them as audiobook. 4mo
IvoryLunatic @Buechersuechtling Well I loved the Count of Monte Cristo and The Secret Garden on audio but somehow this one just isnt doing it for me. Maybe it‘s just this specific book. The characters just seem shallow and not interesting to me either. 4mo

Young me was pretty obsessed with the 1985 film of this. I taped it off network TV in the 6th grade (I missed the full monty that was the bathing scene until years later 😆) and watched it over and over. In light of that, I'm not sure what held me back from reading this for so long. I can only say I wish I'd read it sooner ❤ It's light & funny but also has some deeper undertones about class and what's expected of women. Delightful.

Day 4 of #7booksin7days is a love story!

When I read E.M. Forster‘s A Room with a View I wasn‘t sure I liked it very much, but it‘s stuck with me more than many novels I‘ve read since. Set in Florence and England at the turn of the 20th century, the book is about finding love in a restrictive society.

I loved this book from beginning to end. Love the settings, the humor, the colorful characters, and the romance. Lucy and her choices seem progressive for the time period, and I‘m impressed that she was written (so very well) by a man in the early 1900s.

This won‘t be a favourite classic of mine. I enjoyed the historical feel of the book and the conclusion was nice, but I found the middle a bit too twee. I feel the classics give a great insight into behaviour and status of the era in which they are written and I like that they also show how writing has changed over the decades. For me though, the plot was just too flat ⭐️⭐️

"The first fine afternoon drive up to Fiesole, and round by Settignano, or something of that sort."
"No!" cried a voice from the top of the table. "Mr.Beebe, you are wrong. The first fine afternoon your ladies must go to Prato."

Ouch! That hurts.. I'm from Pistoia, the city right next to Prato, and there is an ancient rivalry between these two. It's painfull if someone suggests Prato (and not Pistoia) when you're visiting around Florence.

The reviews I‘ve seen for this book seem to fall quite a bit to one extreme or the other, but I‘m more in the middle. I appreciated the story and the message that the woman should make a conscious decision to do what she feels is right, not just what is expected. However, I doubt that it will stick with me in the long term.

My very own room with a view. It feels like autumn came so quickly this year. This photo is from a week or so ago, and most of the leaves have fallen already. I wish autumn lasted longer. Its beauty is so fleeting.

slategreyskies @Melissa_J We‘re under a winter storm warning for tonight/tomorrow, and the schools are on a two hour delay so far, but I‘m not sure we‘ll end up getting much. Our forecast temperatures are right on the line between sleet and rain. It could go either way. Stay safe tomorrow! Snow days are the best snuggle up and read sort of days! ❄️ 12mo
Melissa_J Unfortunately there is no such thing as a snow day here 😕 We get lots of snow so if stuff closed down every time we got more than a couple of centimetres the city would be shut down from Dec until March 🤣. School buses might get cancelled, but that‘s about it (plus the schools stay open). Hopefully you just get rain cause sleet sucks! And I‘ll cross my fingers we don‘t get as much snow as is being called for. 12mo

#tarottakeover Day 2 The World, card of balance, fulfillment, prosperity, peace of mind. I offer A Room With A View It embodies this card as many characters are blinded by their fears and limitations, even though they travel, they don‘t see the world. Forster‘s ability to reveal insecurities and fearfulness of judgement makes the connections characters do make all the more powerful. The hero of the book for me is Mr. Emerson as he ↙️

jmofo ...sticks to his values and when he sees he might‘ve failed his son by doing so, he vulnerably asks Lucy to help. Characters learn about themselves and their places in the world when they are honest with themselves and each other. I value honesty and skepticism so this book is a real pick me up and dose of hope when I‘m having a tough time. 14mo

Success! I‘ve finished my read of A Room with a View by E. M. Forster. I think overall for me it‘s a 3-3.5 star. I enjoyed it, but it seemed a little slow to start, I was over halfway through the book before it became apparent it was a love story, and this resulted in the romance seeming rushed and ungraceful to me. I was pleased with the ending but had hoped for something more. I will though, enjoying reading more of Forsters works. 🐞

Page 204, I stop and reflect on what makes this work ultimately so stirring and profound. It is just a story. Why should it command such high regard? I play the devil's advocate against myself. But the minute I ask the question, my mind answers,

“It speaks the Truth, that is why.”

And I read on, and soon Mr. Emerson says, "Yes, for we fight for more than Love or Pleasure: there is Truth. Truth counts, Truth does count."

Soon after I started, I was wondering at myself for having delayed this pleasure for so many years. I love this sort of story: a new set of values and self-awareness burgeoning among conventional mores, set among tourists in a gorgeous locale. This book is funny, too, which is not what I expected. I listened to it on the #Libby app, which I have recently downloaded and love. Anyone else use it?
