Summary

Lucy Honeychurch and her older cousin, Miss Bartlett, tour Italy in the springtime. However, the pension they are staying at may as well be in London. The proprietress speaks a London cockney, the meat is overdone, and their windows give them a view of dirty alleys. However, when the socially clumsy Mr. Emerson offer to exchange rooms, this does anything but remedy the situation. You see, nobody knows what to make of the Emersons. It's so hard to know how to respond to people who speak the truth.

A bit disappointing

I found the story marred by rather dull narration and an oddly-unidentifiable accent. The reader's accent seems to swim a bit between English, American, a touch of Irish and was that also Canadian?



I want my English classics read with a pure English accent! Like the stunning Nadia May!

very good read

The narration was most the difficult part. very theatrical, and while I realize that the stuffy high class nature of some characters calls for a different tone, it was a bit over acted. it also seemed like the same voice changing for male and female and this was distracting.

great book. lovely story

Good story, refreshingly clean read.

Narration was good, plot was interesting, excellent character development for the main character Lucy and her male counterparts.
