really liked it

This is really a rating for Howard's End, as I only got the book to read it. Forster has a great understanding of how people think and also shows us the limitation of the people of the time. He makes England sound so beautiful and yet it's also a nostalgic looking backward at a time when there was more beautiful countryside ... and far more crushing poverty. A truly enjoyable read and a rich, rich book. It has made me sad, though, because it's so completely aware of how transient our lives are and how frequently we just fail to be kind and loving to each other, and what a tragedy this is. We may not all manage to be great, but can we at least manage to be kind?
