It would have to be A ROOM WITH A VIEW. Tomorrow it might be a different book. 😃

#Naturalitsy #LitSolace

My #Fridaynightshare choice for Spring fiction is the perfect A room with a view. It has everything, a coming-of-age novel, set in Florence and Edwardian England, with seering, comedic portrayal of polite society. I absolutely love it. In my view, E M Forster is on par with Jane Austen.

What a treat! This book was such a joy to read. We start off with Lucy, (the prime character) being chaperoned by her much older cousin while visiting Florence. They are disappointed in the room they have at the pension because it doesn‘t provide a view. Enter in a man and his son, who offer to exchange rooms with them, and from there the story takes off.

First line: “The Signora had no business to do it,” said Miss Bartlett, “no business at all. She promised us south rooms with a view close together, instead of which here are north rooms, looking into a courtyard, and a long way apart.”

My pick up today at the bookstore after trading in Middlemarch, and Magic Mountain.

282Mikado I'm surprised they didn't make you pay to take Middlemarch off your hands. 6mo
Pip2 @282Mikado that‘s probably why I was only able to get three books with my credit. Had I excluded Middlemarch the original credit may have been double. 6mo

I'm sure I said it before because it describes every Forster book that I read, but this has such a wonderful cinematography in my imagination. I loved seeing the women liberation movement through different eyes, the difference between the most conservative characters, the pretending to be feminist characters and the real feminist ones, it will forever be relevant. This is the most homoerotic of Forster's stories (and yes, I read Maurice) ⬇️

nanuska_153 but the adoration of George Emerson doesn't know of sexualities, it's universal. Hello, new literary crush ❤️ 7mo

Re read for book club.
Still very English and of its era, thus cringy language surrounding race, gender and class.
It'll be an interesting discussion...

#Pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade – this recent episode of Grammar Girl may be of interest! She interviews someone who wrote a book on the exclamation point and other names for that punctuation mark come up. She mentions that the question mark was called a “note of interrogation”! And get this—the exclamation point was a “note of admiration”! 😄

IndoorDame Ha! One of my writing teachers in college was a staunch member of the ‘grammar police‘ that just hated it. A friend and I were speculating recently about whether internet norms had mellowed her views at all, or if she was still ranting about !!!s to all her students 😆 9mo
wanderinglynn I think the exclamation point has a purpose but should be used, like most things, in moderation. 😉 9mo

I enjoyed reading this classic with the #pemberlittens this month. Lucy was an interesting character to witness as she matures and learns to make her own decisions. I loved to hate Charlotte, the little manipulator, and Freddie was the best.

I have to say I have a hard time reviewing books that I read with the #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade because I have such fun reading with this group that I end up loving it! So having said that, I loved this book with the exception of the abrupt ending which left me with a sort of “wait, what?” reaction. Also, there is an appendix in some versions that is awful, so if yours has an appendix just skip it (Forster years later wrote a followup ☹️👎👎

mcctrish I completely agree with you, it is so much fun reading together that it does colour the book and the ending was abrupt 9mo

Finished yesterday with the #hashtagbrigade with the #Pemberlittens I‘ll give it a soft pick. I saw the movie years ago but this was my first time through the book & I mostly wanted to smack or shake every character at least at some point. Also to note, I bought the annotated Kindle version for.99 cents & while I appreciated the summary & analysis after each chapter, I felt like it was translated into a language & then translated back to English⬇️

DebinHawaii …with some very peculiar wording & sentence structure. It had me laughing more than the book did several times. That & the hash tags from our host @BarkingMadRead & comments by my fellow readers helped move the book along. I may try to find & stream the movie this weekend. (edited) 9mo
TheBookHippie I love the reading together part!!! It‘s so much fun. 9mo
DebinHawaii @TheBookHippie Yes! It‘s the best! 🤗 9mo

Ruthiella @mcctrish Agree! A little sad Mr. Beebe wasn‘t on board, but I can also understand his frustration at being used. 9mo
See All 12 Comments
mcctrish @Ruthiella his reaction seems over the top to me but I think the main point is George and Lucy are so meant to be ( unlike the fiasco ) they don‘t need approval 9mo
dabbe Get over it, Mr. Beebe and Lucy's family! Reach a little more into that 20th century! 🤩🤣🤩 9mo
Bookwormjillk I thought that chapter was really sweet. I think Charlotte helped too. 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly I found the ending unsatisfying 🤷🏻‍♀️ I think Forster skips over stuff I‘d like to know more about and extends stuff I‘d rather get through quickly. 9mo
Morr_Books I absolutely loved this book and enjoyed all the comments y'all made throughout. In the last chapter, I thought the dialog with the Italian was a weird way to tell the audience that they were married. Also, I too believe Charlotte helped (aka redeemed herself a bit). 9mo
Bklover I would love to have seen a bit more of the in- between part. I loved this book, but it ended so abruptly. And I really can‘t see why everyone‘s so angry about them. If her mother loves her, wouldn‘t she want her happy? Oh, and I like how she mentioned coming in to her money next year, so we don‘t have to picture them poor 😉 9mo
Bklover Oh, has anyone read the appendix? Apparently Forster wrote an appendix in 1958 telling what happened “after”. I just read the summary. Didn‘t like it. It said only some versions of the book contained the appendix. 9mo
eeclayton @Clare-Dragonfly @Bklover I agree. Just like the missing Rome chapters earlier, we go from denial to poof-they-are-on-their-honeymoon. That said, I did enjoy the book, I just think some more chapters could have been added. 9mo
julieclair I don‘t think Charlotte actually helped, but rather chose not to hinder. And I would have liked to have learned more of Charlotte‘s backstory. 9mo

This Edwardian bildungsroman places, at times, an awkward Lucy Honeychurch on the cusp of womanhood who is first on the puppet strings of her elder cousin and then her fiancee. What ensues is a comic satire on the mores of early 1900s England, both at home and abroad in Italy. Lucy could be annoying if seen through our modern-day sensibilities, but I rooted for her all the way. Will have to read more Forster. #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade

I always love reading with the #hashtagbrigade but this one had a bunch of chapters and characters I couldn‘t concentrate on. It also had parts I really enjoyed, so I think it‘s more me slogging out of my reading slump than Forester. I may have to pick this up again someday and test my theory. #pemberlittens

Finished this after a trip to the beach. A long time ago I was in Uni and there was a rep theatre that I went to to see all the cool movies. A Room with a View was one and I loved it and all the actors in it so much. I can‘t believe I waited to so long to read this, but I‘m so glad I did so I could read it with #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade #allswellthatensswell ( also I‘m not sure there is a better sandwich than a French ham one, Club Jambon)

Admittedly, this took me several chapters to follow the writing style - I‘m way better at 18th & 19th century classics, not early 20th century! But, once I did, I found this an intriguing study on the class system in Edwardian England. Many of the characters are horrid, & I was not really a fan of Lucy, though she received the brunt of all of the clashes. I‘m glad I read this! #PemberLittens #HashtagBrigade

Chapter 19: Emerson sets Lucy straight #willwegetourhappyending #staytuned #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade

CatLass007 I love this movie! I didn‘t know that the character who walked around with his nose in a book was played by the same actor who played Hawkeye in The Last of the Mohicans. Someone had to point it out to me. Daniel Day-Lewis is such a versatile actor. So sad what happened to Julian Sands. I remember reading Interview With a Vampire and thinking he would make an excellent Lestat. Then almost every character in the movie was terribly miscast. 9mo

Bookwormjillk I liked that George was honest with his father. An actual normal relationship. Still wondering what happened to Charlotte though. 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly @Bookwormjillk Yes! Since Mrs. Honeychurch is saying Lucy sounds like Charlotte, I wonder if she also fell in love with the wrong man and hid from romance all her life because of it. Sadly I don‘t think we‘ll find out for sure. 9mo

Bookwormjillk Awful but entertaining 🤣 9mo
Ruthiella @Cuilin @Clare-Dragonfly I wondered about that too. Is it the line “It makes such a difference when you see a person with beautiful things behind HIM unexpectedly.” So that we understand that SHE was overtaken in the moment just as he was? 9mo
dabbe And all the exchanging of coins: a comedy of manners. Charlotte seems to be concerned about doing the right thing about reimbursing for the cab, but as with everything re: Charlotte, it's annoying to everyone, especially Lucy. 9mo
Cuilin @Ruthiella @Clare-Dragonfly yes. She gave it away that she was overcome not “him”. That the beauty of it all got to her and she still thinks of it!!! 9mo
ravenlee The endnote in the Penguin edition: “It perhaps is worth explaining the ‘unfortunate slip‘ in Lucy‘s speech. She clearly reverses the point of view, meaning to say, ‘It makes such a difference when you see a person with beautiful things behind her unexpectedly.‘ Lucy has made an early version of the Freudian Slip. @Clare-Dragonfly @Ruthiella @Cuilin 9mo
ravenlee @dabbe I think the word “punctilious” applies here. Also, why wouldn‘t she have smaller coins? Wouldn‘t that be like traveling in the U.S. with hundred-dollar bills and quarters, but nothing in between? How hare-brained. 9mo
Cuilin @ravenlee Exactly. Interesting that Charlotte doesn‘t pick up on this. I guess she‘s all in a dither about coins again. 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly @Cuilin Ooh, I see! That makes sense, but is Charlotte observant enough to pick up on it? 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly Speaking of Charlotte, I suspect she wanted to be seen as virtuous for offering to pay, but for her money to not actually be accepted because they wouldn‘t have change. 9mo
BarkingMadRead @Clare-Dragonfly definitely! I don‘t think she actually expected them to take her money! 9mo
BarkingMadRead I bet Charlotte picked up on it and is saving it for another day! 9mo
dabbe @ravenlee I think she does it on purpose--just like her always saying things like “Oh, I'll sit on the hard ground, Lucy, you take the seat.“ She LOVES being not only the center of attention but creating angst; she feeds off of it. But then that would put her in an even darker category than just being a twit (that was the word in the book right?) 9mo
dabbe @Clare-Dragonfly YES! A way to “pretend“ to be virtuous but not really intending to be. I'd hate to ever turn my back on Charlotte! 🤣 9mo
Bklover @Clare-Dragonfly Yep! She is a manipulative sneak. @ravenlee I had no idea what she referring to 9mo
julieclair @ravenlee Thanks for the explanation! I am listening on audio and was completely clueless what the “unfortunate slip” was, even after listening to it several times. 🤪 9mo

And I think it was important that their next meeting took place out in nature, a place with many views. Back at home, she goes to change for dinner, looks through a window, and can't find a view. C'mon, Lucy. Figure it out! We're all pulling for you! #lasttimeaboilerwasinastoryformewastheshining 🔥 9mo

TheAromaofBooks It especially blows my mind that Cecil thinks he's the open-minded one for inviting “lower class“ people to come and live there 🙃 *edited because I totally spaced on Cecil's name and put him down as Cyrus* 😂 (edited) 9mo

TheBookHippie Priggish comes to mind 😵‍💫 9mo
Ruthiella He only sees Lucy as someone to be molded and reflect him back to himself. He does not appreciate her as her own person at all. (edited) 9mo
peanutnine So proud of Lucy for telling off Charlotte! How she still manages to meddle when she's not even there baffles me 🙄 9mo

ravenlee @TheAromaofBooks he doesn‘t deserve the attention required to keep his name straight. Ugh. 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig Cecil is such a prig! 9mo

dabbe Instead of being on the end of the kite-string of Charlotte, she'll be on the end of Cecil's. Guess his last name says it all: Vys-->Vice. #runlucyrun 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig That kiss is so cringe and sus. 🤢 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly Umm, Cecil, has anyone ever mentioned to you that you‘re supposed to LIKE the person you‘re marrying? And she‘s supposed to like you, so maybe stop insulting her and her family? 9mo
Bookwormjillk Cecil yuck. And also beware of canaries 🐤🐦🐤🐦🐤🐦 9mo
dabbe Class distinctions here, class distinctions there, class distinctions everywhere! Gee, why does Lucy see you only in a room without a view, Cecil? And we all know what Lucy yearns for--a room WITH a view--if only she can cut the proverbial strings! Mr. Bebe knows this: “If Miss Honeychurch ever takes to live as she plays, it will be very exciting both for us and for her.“ That's what we're waiting for, right? #teamgeorge #georgeandlucy #byececil 9mo
Bklover @dabbe Exactly! I can‘t stand Cecil, and I‘m getting quite annoyed at Lucy too! 9mo

Ruthiella @Morr_Books That‘s him! Daniel Day Lewis. He played the prig Cecil Vyse to perfection. 😃 9mo
Morr_Books @BarkingMadRead I'm guessing whoever did the casting for that production felt the same way some of us did about not wanting any of that Cecil character. 9mo

Bklover I thought I was reading the wrong book. Or the wrong chapter. The whole chapter was just wrong wrong wrong. We are supposed to be in Rome and George is supposed to be finding her and sweeping her away!!! And what rock did Cecil crawl out from under 🪨 (edited) 9mo
BarkingMadRead @Bklover yes! I was so confused, I kept expecting them to switch back to Rome. WTF?!?! 9mo
Bklover @BarkingMadRead I hope your daughter knows how much fun we have here! (edited) 9mo
BarkingMadRead @Bklover she‘s actually on Litsy, although she rarely posts! @Princess.ofthe.pages 9mo

Bklover Went to follow her and I already do! 9mo
Bookwormjillk This chapter was so abrupt. I feel like Rome stolen from us 🤣 9mo
Cuilin #lovefreddy played by a very young and beautiful Robert Graves 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly Lucy thinks she can but I really hope she doesn‘t actually! I was annoyed with George last chapter but now I really, really want him to come back. Also… I‘m so confused 😭 #whydidtheyskipaheadsomuch indeed! 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly @mcctrish I‘m with you! #morefreddynocecil Any book character who leaves bones lying around on the nice furniture is my kind of book character 😂😂😂 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly Also… when Mr. Beebe said Cecil was an “ideal bachelor” like him I so wanted him to mean that they are both gay. But in Cecil‘s case I think he just means that he sucks. But Mr. Beebe doesn‘t suck, so it‘s still unclear. 9mo
mcctrish @Clare-Dragonfly that‘s exactly how I interpreted ‘ideal bachelor‘ 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @Clare-Dragonfly @mcctrish - in the context of also talking about how he was like a Gothic statue “which implies celibacy, just as a Greek statue implies fruition“ - I think it may be more that at the time even more than now, marriage also meant fatherhood, family, responsibility - men were the sole charge of the household finances and major decisions. For different reasons, neither Cecil nor Beebe is particularly the type to take on that burden. 9mo
dabbe @Ruthiella The same DDL who was a stud in THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS? #wtf? (excuse my French). 😀🤣🤩 9mo

Ruthiella But what happened to the second mackintosh square? 😂 Charlotte was probably very rude to George, but I don‘t think it matters. He‘s impervious to people like her. 9mo

mcctrish @Bklover her manipulation skills are seriously legendary #legendwaitforitdary 9mo
dabbe I can't help but see similarities between Charlotte and the Nurse in ROMEO & JULIET as well as Lucy and Juliet. I'm waiting for a final break to happen when Lucy finally matures and will no longer allow herself to be manipulated by Charlotte. #staytuning 😀 9mo
Bookwormjillk @mcctrish haha that pretty much sums it up 9mo

Bookwormjillk So did Lucy fall in a hole filled with violets to find George when he kissed her? Also loved Mr Eager‘s description of tourists going from place to place just to check things off. #Dontlovehim #Buthekindofhadapointthere 10mo
mcctrish Roller coaster chapter, I was legit #poorlucy this is the worst vacation ever with Mr Eager condemning tourists in one breath and pointing out where ‘people of worth‘ live with the other ( but don‘t look, you can‘t see), and Charlotte and Miss Lavish being absolute snobs about everyone “he is the image of a porter - on, on the South-Eastern” #lucyshouldjumpfromthecarriageitsthatbad BUT a kiss 💋 #hereforit #thingsaregettingspicy 10mo
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk he was too on point 🤣 also, I think she slid down a little embankment maybe? 10mo
Ruthiella I loved Mr. Emerson championing the canoodling between the driver and his “sister”. “To be driven by lovers, a king might envy us…” It would be hard to be his son, but I love him in book form. (edited) 10mo
Bklover Lucy‘s determination to avoid the Emersons insures that she spends time with all the snobby idiots. 🙄 Charlotte is an absolute master of manipulation. 😈 Thank goodness she wanted to rid herself of Lucy or we never would have gotten to The Kiss! 💋Oh, and someone should shove Eager off a cliff. Either that, or condemn him to live among the peasants! (edited) 10mo
peanutnine This chapter was so wild and I can't wait for the reactions to The Kiss! 10mo
julieclair The Kiss! 💋 Go George! #hereforit 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly He KISSED her out of nowhere?! Whoa! George, not okay! Also I hope there‘s a good movie of this because I want to see this scene with all the violets. 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly I see I am the only one less than thrilled with The Kiss 😂 9mo
Cuilin @Clare-Dragonfly there‘s two movies, one from around 2009 and one from the 90‘s with Helena Bonham Carter. The later one is my favorite. 9mo
Cuilin @Ruthiella I agree, he‘s fabulous 9mo
dabbe I keep expecting Mr. Emerson to break out in poetry by Keats or Byron or Shelley; he is quite the Romantic. ❤️ 9mo
Clare-Dragonfly @Cuilin Oh, I love Helena Bonham Carter 😍 9mo
TheAromaofBooks @Clare-Dragonfly - I also felt like the kiss was a little abrupt 😂 9mo
Cuilin @dabbe that would have been perfectly appropriate ❤️ I haven‘t been to Italy yet, but when I go, I will be taking their poetry with me. 9mo

dabbe And it seems like Eager is eager to throw shade on Mr. Emerson and others while seeming to be concerned with manners and gentility; what a hypocrite! Lavish and Charlotte, too! Only Mr. Beebe and the Emersons seems truly to be good people. I take it we're going to Rome soon, or somehow we're going to meet the Vyses. #ahtheintrigueofitall 10mo
