    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.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A Passage to India the most enjoyable?

    Quintessential modernist text--Forester deals artfully with British colonialism in India, managing to paint both the Indians and the English sympathetically. Most of the characters are full and dynamic. Anchoring the story in the friendship of Mrs. Moore (an elderly woman) and Dr. Aziz (a widower) begins the story's exploration of the power of relationships and the difficulty of forming and sustaining "intimate" relationships. A Passage to India is a moving story the lure of power and about the difficulty of knowing another.


    What other book might you compare A Passage to India to and why?

    Howard's End--just another excellent Forster text, dealing with some of the same issues of disconnectedness.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Aziz first met Mrs. Moore.


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

    A quest for identity set in the heat and beauty of India...
