Overview

This ironic and compassionate novel addresses the difficulties of friendship between the races in British-ruled India. A Passage to India is a complex, beautifully rendered story of how a young Englishwoman's hallucination that she has been assaulted by a friendly young Indian doctor in an ancient cave gives rise to racial hysteria. This subtle and affecting novel is noted for its strong mystical overtones; it was Forster's last and greatest work and remains a guide to understanding Indian civilization.

I think this is just a bad port from the original book. It has many punctuation and grammer issues from start to finish. Good content though.

A Passage To India, is one of the reasons I enjoy reading classical literature. Edmund Morgan Forster gives the reader a glimpse into British imperialism at its finest in this great work of art. Go deep into the Indian and British-Indian cultures, in A Passage To India, and find out how a simple daytime outing turns into an event that pits the Indian culture and the British-Indian culture strongly against each other. In this exciting, detailed, classic adventure, find out what happens in the Marabar caves that causes such a tense cultural upheaval in Chandrapore, that pits the Indians against the British.

I enjoyed Passage to India, but it was a difficult read. Many different cultures, religions and attitudes are constantly clashing against each other. At first it seems like interwoven random thoughts, but I began to realize this was a brilliant way to reflect the conditions in India during that time. Luckily, I was able to read this on the Nook, with a great dictionary and internet access to help me with all the foreign words and history background. Need a grasp of Hindu and Buddaism to really appreciate this book. Stays with you a long time after you finish the last page.

Although this book may have been a literary classic, I found it very diffucult to follow. I would not recommend it!
