At the heart of E. M. 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.

    " I didn't really like this one. It took forever for me to get into it and by the end I was left thinking, why is this a classic? "

    " Always interesting and yet a little bit incomprehensible to read about social class issues and mannerisms of another era. Might be worth catching up with the movie now. When Forster wandered off, getting poetic about England, I didn't care for that very much, but other parts were descriptions or scenes that you'd want to underline (except it was a library book). Didn't expect the ending, which seemed to wrap up rather quickly. "

    " SIX WORD REVIEW: (borrowed from Melissa Swantowski) "Howards End: No End in Sight" "

    " At first I agreed with Katherine Mansfield. Forster was only warming the teapot and there would be no tea! But then everything started coming together. Margaret became clearer, Howards End reappeared and I began to understand the social, intellectual and emotional differences between the two families. Just as I began to grasp all this there was Evie's wedding and the novel was unputdownable after that. DO NOT stop reading this book without at least finding and reading Margaret's wonderful speech. Like me you probably will be racing to the end after that! "
