Forster's works are enjoying a revival. This title is well-suited to the audio format and should be enjoyed by listeners looking for classics on tape. The novel examines English social conventions and strictures during the early 1900's through the story of Lucy Honeychurch, a young woman who muddles her way to the discovery of her own passion and sexuality. Narrator Jill Masters succeeds in transporting the listener to the Italian pensione and English drawing room. As the voice of the narrator, Masters is particularly effective in portraying Forster's sympathetic humor and irony. T.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 93]
