E.M. Forster and Kazuo Ishiguro

An previous reviewer mistakenly attributed "Remains of the Day" to E.M. Forster. While this work shares similarities with "Howards End", "Remains of the Day" was written by Kazuo Ishiguro, a Japanese-British author who was born in 1954. E.M. Forster lived 1879-1970.

However, I still highly recommend "Remains of the Day" as well.

Save your 99 cents!

A couple of typos are to be expected, but they are EVERYWHERE! Impossible to get through without losing patience. Don't buy!

    Classic Literature at its best

    Perhaps E. M. Forster is not known as a classic author but he should be. This novel, along with his other famous one "Remains of the Day", give you an veritable new world to explore. The characters are well rounded and insightful. The locations are breathtaking and memorable. And the story itself is like a long walk on a beautiful day...something to be treasured.

    Good literature, great history.

    This is an excellent read, and its focus on male/female relationships provides highly enlightening information about the era in which it was written.

    Probably the Best Example of Great 20th Century British Literature

    'Howards End' is a glimpse of the interaction between the social classes in England. The characters could be real; they are even represented in the society in which we live today. The book captures your sympathy not only for the poor clerk L. Bast, but for the snobbish, but confused Mr. Wilcox, as well. The story is beautifully written, and it is very fast paced. I read it in a day.
