E.M. Forster (1879-1970) was an English novelist and short story writer who won international acclaim for his well-plotted novels dealing with ideas of class and race.From AudioFile:
When Adela Quested travels to India to meet her fiancé, she soon finds herself engulfed in a cultural struggle. Forster masterfully reveals colonial India through the eyes of both Indian and British residents. Talented British actress Meera Syal gives a thoughtful reading of Forster's famous novel. With such a wide assortment of characters, voicing dialogue might prove a difficult task, but Syal accomplishes it with expertise. She masters a range of British and Indian accents to produce lively conversations. Her portrayal of the kind-hearted Indian doctor Aziz is as convincing as that of the elderly Mrs. Moore. With this audiobook's combination of Indian music, rich description, and Syal's compelling reading, the listener can expect to enter into the heart of India. T.D.M.
