What really happened in the Marabar caves? Adela Quested arrives in Chandrapore, India, prepared to marry a British magistrate who exemplifies the narrow-minded, anti-Indian prejudices of the imperial bureaucracy. But she soon meets the charming and mercurial Dr. Aziz, who offers to show her the real India. An expedition to the famed Marabar caves ends in explosive accusations and a schism that foreshadows the eventual end of British rule in India. Sam Dastor brilliantly evokes the Indian scenes and accents that make this story so intriguing.

About the Author:

E.M. Forster (1879 1970) was born in London and attended Cambridge University. Where Angels Fear to Tread (1905) and A Room With a View (1908) were published before he achieved his first major success with Howards End in 1910. During WWI he spent three years in Alexandria and made two trips to India. After returning to England, he wrote A Passage to India (1924), his last novel. He continued to write short stories and essays until his death in 1970.

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.
