I am left rattled by this novel. The plot twists were rather jarring. I felt my expectations being toyed with. There was a travel sequence in the middle that had language which delighted me, and some of the dialogue was really sharp. However, the plot did not resolve in a satisfying way for me. I‘m doing a read-along of all of Forster this year and I‘m looking forward to see how his writing developed. There is brilliance here, but in a small dose.

This must have been an incredibly difficult novel to write, let alone to share.

A reminder of how much has changed over the years.

A very sensitive and empathetic portrayal of E.M. Forster. The main focus is his emotional life shaped by the men he loves and the underlying sadness caused by them. The novel follows his extended travels to India and Egypt, his open minded willingness to ‘only connect‘ and the slow taking shape of A Passage to India. I greatly enjoyed this, including the very British voice of Finlay Robertson who reads the audiobook.

Maurice by EM Forster is inspired by the author‘s same-sex orientation. The manuscript was concealed until after his death. Read my review here.

It didn't end like I thought it would. In spite of that ending, it was much funnier than I expected.
