Adela Quested travels to India with her chaperone Mrs Moore, on the premise of deciding whether to marry Mrs Moore's son Ronny Heaslop, the city magistrate. Finding her India very disappointingly English, Adela jumps at the chance the two women are given to travel to the distant Marabar caves with Aziz, a charismatic young Indian Doctor.

When Adela is subjected to an attempted assault in one of the caves, Dr. Aziz is arrested and tried in court. The volatile situation forces British India's cracks to widen into chasms, although bridges of hope are found in some open-minded British characters like the logical college principal Mr. Fielding.

Forster's eloquent and mature prose style makes this unique and sensitive audio version of the classic story a moving and philosophical experience. Download and start listening now!

    " I only read a few chapters in before I was thinking about other things. The story just didn't hook me at this point in my life...I'll try again someday. "

    " Before this book, I had read little from the time when India was under British rule. I really liked the primary conflict in the story, even if it took a long time to get there, and the details of that time period and location. The book starts really slow, but it's definitely worth reading. "

    " Most good novels are terrible guides for how to live, but once again, my overpowering feeling from how Forster's novels are written - even more than what happens within them - is that if all humans handled each other with such undismayed honesty and tender clarity, the world would be a far better place. That A Passage to India also features as decent, relevant, and accurate depiction of the complexities of India, empire, and expatriatism as you're liable to find -- that's just gravy, baby. "

    " I had trouble getting through it, but it mostly redeemed itself by about page 150. It took me weeks to get through the first half, and a day to finish. I think I don't particularly like his prose- overly detailed; it felt oppressive. "
