A Classic Love Novel

In need to find a good classic book? Do you think classic books are hard to read? If you are one of those people, this is the book for you.

The book, A Room with a View, is one of the best classic English books. Published in 1908 by E.M. Foster, the book is a love novel, about Lucy Honeychurch, a woman living in the narrow controlled culture of Edwardian England in the early 20th century, and her life adventure trying to overcome the difficult and complicated conflict between what she wants and what society expects of her.

The story starts out with Lucy, a woman from a family of a respected upper social class, one day deciding to go to Italy with her cousin Charlotte Bartlett, on a vacation. She meets there a man named George Emerson from a lower social class, by his looks and actions, which change her colorless life forever.

In this novel, E.M Foster has many themes and messages to the society. He talks about feminism, religion, freedom, and more importantly, true love. At first, it seems like a challenging book. However, the novel being a love novel makes it easier to understand the theme and the historical facts in the novel, such as the social classes and the public

I strongly recommend this book to everyone. From this book, you can learn many things. A Room with a View introduces you to the history of England. You can also see the different stereotypes of a man and woman. Before I read this novel, inside me was the thought that classic books are hard to read. However after reading this, I now feel like challenging more classic books. This book is really a page turner, and I truly hope that the people who read this book learn and get new views.
