Some good quotes sprinkled throughout, but never really painted a picture in my mind and the plot was lost on me on parts. Not my particular cup of tea.

I don't know why I didn't like this book. I don't have much to say. The plot was okay, the characters were great, but the whole thing together just seemed bland to me. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I was doing some in-depth studying on it in school.

I read this book years ago and it was an interesting look at the strict Edwardian rules of society. I'm rereading it and it stands up well to the test of time

Edwardian England was a prim and proper era with little time for the real passions of real people. But when young Lucy Honeychurch has a romantic encounter with George Emerson (the son of a free-speaking Socialist?shocking!) in a flower-filled field in Italy, she faces precisely that dilemma?follow convention or follow her heart. Back home in England, surrounded by her charming and well-meaning family and neighbors, Lucy attempts the proper path and engages herself to the very prim Cecil. Less-than-satisfied but encouraged by her spinster aunt, Lucy?s orderly world is thrown into disarray when George reappears in her life. A Room with a View features some of the most delightful characters in literature?the outlandish lady writer Eleanor Lavish, the ultimate snob?s snob Cecil, the truth-speaking clergyman Mr. Beebe, and the primmest and proper-est spinster Aunt Charlotte. These characters are cast to a tee in the 1986 film adaptation which stars some of the day?s great actors, including Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, and Daniel Day-Lewis. The scene where George Emerson meets Lucy?s brother Freddy is priceless?few films these days feature grown men skinny-dipping in a very small pond?
