One of those classics which I always felt I must have read at some time in the past but apparently had not, so meeting Lucy Honeychurch for the first time was a great pleasure.

A Room with a View is a very enjoyable humorous critique of society, much in the style of Jane Austen. Lucy's travelling partner, Charlotte, could have come straight from an Austen novel. It is also a romance with, of all things, (view spoiler)(Spoiler alert there in case you have not read it yet)

I think I have likened it to Austen because it is light hearted and fun, not deep, dark and melodramatic. It is a short book, easy to read and definitely a good choice for anyone who wants lay claim to reading the classics without having to try too hard. I am pleased I have read it at last:)

Petra You've added this book to my TBR list, Phrynne. It sounds like a fun read. I didn't read the spoiler and am now really curious.

Phrynne I hope you like it Petra:)

Carolyn One of my favourite classics!

Phrynne It is good. I was a bit surprised I had never read it before!
