"Ironic and malevolent. Comfortable notions of vice and virtue collapse underfoot and the best intentions go mortally awry." (Spectator)
To IPod users...beware that this title is only available in the lower formats. I found the audio to be absolutely terrible. It was very scratcty, irratating, and distracting.
The story is good, but I didn't enjoy it because of the audio. Although I'm a fan of Forster, I don't recommend this audiobook.
Listen to "A Passage to India" instead. Great sound and an exceptional narrator. Also, it's Forster's greatest work.
"Worst Narration Possible"
I couldn't listen to this book - the narrator has an awful staccato, stop-start delivery, almost like an automated voice telling you your bank balance. Waste of my money.
"Back in school"
17 years old I tried to read this novel for my english-lessons. I didn't succeed, but now I love it. Forster is so satirical and he knows Italy. It's a slow-pacing novel and not written for teenagers!
