    What really happened to Miss Quested in the Marabar Caves? This tantalising question provides the intense drama of racial tension at the centre of Foster's last and greatest novel.

    "Value for money - a classic to enjoy over again"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    E.M. Forster's famous novel is a fascinating and alluring drama of race relations in India under the Raj. It depicts the power and prejudice of the ruling white class, and what happens when Adela Quested, fresh from England, seeks to experience the 'real India' and socialise with Hindu and Muslim men and women. It's an unforgettable portrait of India under the Raj and the political tensions which ultimately led to Indian independence.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I personally liked the open minded school teacher, Fielding, who was an outcast from the British Club because of his unorthodox attitudes. He stood by his Indian friend, Aziz - who was accused of rape - despite misunderstandings in their relationship.


    Have you listened to any of Sam Dastor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm currently listening to Sam Dastor's reading of The Raj Quartet. Sam does a wonderful job of all the characters in the Raj Quartet, even better than in the A Passage to India.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I watched the film A Passage to India immediately after listening to Sam Dastor' reading, and it was fun seeing the story come to life on the screen. The film was a Merchant Ivory production, and of very high quality. I enjoyed spotting the differences between the two versions.


    Any additional comments?

    There's a mysterious quality to A Passage to India, an atmosphere that, even today, is unique to India.
