Howards End

At the heart of Forester's masterpiece lie two families: the wealthy and business-minded Wilcoxes and the cultured and idealistic Schlegels.

Publisher's Summary

At the heart of Forester's masterpiece lie two families: the wealthy and business-minded Wilcoxes and the cultured and idealistic Schlegels. When the beautiful and independent Helen Schlegel begins an impetuous affair with the ardent Paul Wilcox, a series of events is sparked: some very funny, some very tragic, that results in a dispute over who will inherit Howards End, the Wilcoxes' charming country home.

As much about the clash between individual wills as the clash between the sexes and the classes, Howards End is a novel whose central tenet, "Only connect," remains a powerful prescription for modern life.

    "Something's Missing in this Abridged Version"

    Emma Thompson is a wonderful reader, and the book has a timeless quality. It's unfortunate that this version is abridged. As a result, I missed many key points in the story. The central theme, "only connect" is totally missing from this version.

    "Beautifully read."
    What about Emma Thompson’s performance did you like?

    I thought Emma Thompson did a beautiful job reading this story. Her voice is a perfect fit for the narrator, which is why I chose this version over the others that are available.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    If you are familiar with Forster and like his work, you will probably respond well to "Howard's End." I enjoyed the "read" but in the end, Forster is not one of my favorites.
