Great Book

Especially the bits in Florence

Beautiful v. delicate, indeed!

I must admit this is a premature review: I am only four chapters in. But it's lovely. I feel I will treasure the cast of eclectic characters, some of them possibly forever. Each is so earnest in his or her worldview, so certain only their own way can lead to truth, and most sorry for all the other poor souls. It's the sorriness that gets to me, that draws me in. These people have empathy, and the author has empathy for them, each in their own constricted lives. This is not a book in which "things just happen" to people, as in Waugh's _Decline and Fall_. These characters do, metaphorically ;-), make their beds -- and though their fellows tut-tut over what others choose to lie in, Forster acknowledges and appreciates that each character, at least, tries.
