A Room with a View (version 2)

(4,672 Sterne; 496 Bewertungen)

The 1908 novel A Room With a View is the story of Lucy Honeychurch, a young English girl traveling to Italy for the first time. While staying in Florence, Lucy meets the unconventional George Emerson, with whom she shares a single passionate kiss, much to the horror of her chaperone, her spinsterish cousin Charlotte. Back in England, Lucy finds she must choose between George and her rather stuffy fiance Cecil Vyse. Forster's wonderfully comic romance satirizes turn-of-the-century English culture (as did his other major novel of the period, Howards End). (Summary by Elizabeth Klett) (7 hr 9 min)

Wonderful, Again!

(5 Sterne)

Forester is great; so is Klett!

Great read

Such a nice love story.

Excellent narrator

(5 Sterne)

This book on its own is a little difficult to get into at first. It is a story which highlights what “proper” conduct of polite society was at the time. It would be frustrating to us. But reading along with Ms Klett’s excellent narration, the story subtly grabs you, and when I finished it, I found it a very satisfying experience both in the reading and listening. Thank you Ms Klett.

Listened to it..again!

(5 Sterne)

This story never gets old. I am happy I came across it on LibriVox and I have listened to it a couple of times. Elizabeth does a great job and makes it easier to understand older novels. This inspired me to watch the movie which is great too!!

Wonderful!

(5 Sterne)

I keep coming back to this story because there is always more to be gleaned from it. As always, excellent reading by Ms. Klett. Thank you!

Wonderful!

(5 Sterne)

every one is correct in the statement of this being a dated text when it comes to etiquette for womens courting methods. it's a fine piece of historical work if you must see it that way, nonetheless, wonderfully read by Elizabeth Klett as always. Take the life lessons as you can for today's living... dont get in a muddle

This book is so satisfying!

I did not know the story and she read it so well that I imagined it set in even more beautiful places and with even more beautiful characters than those of the movie which I saw after having read the book. She is an extraordinary reader, esoecially when making the voices of the different characters!!
