1.5 stars? This did not live up to the hype I have heard. Yes it is a critique of edwardian society and you aren't supposed to like anyone in the book. I hate making statements like this but....the book was boring! And when something interesting happens, there isn't much background discussing it. Like the very end, I would have liked to have read more about that scene. If you want to read a period piece about the turn of the century, I would much sooner send you to Edith Wharton than Forster.

His humanistic impulse toward understanding and sympathy may be aptly summed up in the epigraph to his 1910 novel Howards End: "Only connect".
