A Passage to India

A Passage to India by E. M. Forrester

Set during the British colonial era, "A Passage to India" explores prejudice between the British, the Indians and Hindus. During an outing to the Marabar Caves, Adela Quested believes Dr. Aziz attempted to rape her.

To tell you the truth, I didn't get much out of this book. It was hard to keep the characters straight. I'm not familiar with Indian culture. And I can't figure out what happened in the cave to make Adela think Aziz was trying to rape her.

Maybe someday I'll try to reread it. But I doubt it.

I'm ashamed to say I didn't finish it. There's just too many books I want to read to struggle with something I don't care for.

I know that's true. But with some of them I just keep going. Like when it's something everyone else seems to have read.

I struggle with that too, but I figure most of the people in the club are overachievers anyway. I try not to feel too bad about it. LOL.
