Overview

Passage to India by E. M. Forster, Flo Gibson

Just below the surface of everyday life crouches the menace of misunderstanding. A common one springs up, then explodes into a destructive affair as cultures clash in turn-of-the-century British India.

Delicate crafting, delicious prose and a biting irony help tell this classic tale, ranked among the greatest novels of the century.

"The crystal clear portraiture, the delicate conveying of nuances of thought and life, and the astonishing command of the medium show Mr. Forster at the height of his powers." (The New York Times)

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.
