A Room with A View by E.M. Forster


While touring Italy with her older cousin, Lucy meets George Emerson and his father – kind people that she likes, but avoids because they seem ill-bred. After her romantic feelings for George start to blossom, she leaves abruptly, agreeing with her cousin to never tell anyone, lest it affect her reputation.
Some months later, she becomes engaged to Cecil Vyse; who, for lack of a better word, is a snob. When the Emersons pop back into her life, she must deal with her inner conflict – choosing a man she loves but will disappoint those around her, or choose a man that she feels no love for but will make a “suitable” match.
I really, really enjoyed this book. It was quite beautifully written, both the scenery and the inner thoughts and turmoils. I really liked Lucy and George and enjoyed watching them try to be together.
The only reason this doesn’t get 5 stars is because I wish it was a little more romance-heavy. Cause I’m a sap, and in stories like this, the more romance between two characters who have to fight to be together, the better.
4 stars


  1. >I liked the book alright but this is one instance where I actually enjoyed the movie more than book. It's been awhile since I've seen the movie but I remember it being true to the book. The actors brought the story alive for me.
