Horrendous Reader Stifles the Story
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Maybe, if they're into romantic stories then I'd recommend that they give this a try by either reading the physical book or getting a different version of this audiobook done by a different reader. I regret purchasing this audiobook because it was read so dryly that I couldn't pay attention to what was going on and often I my mind was off somewhere else. I don't know if that was primarily due to the reader or if that also had something to do with the prose. But I have a suspicion that if I read this book, I would've enjoyed it more.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I was content with the ending. It was predictable but I'm okay with that.
Would you be willing to try another one of Frederick Davidson???s performances?
Could you see A Room with a View being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Actually it was made into a movie which was very popular back in the 80s. It had Helena Bonham Carter as the heroine. But if it was remade today I'd probably have Michael Fassbender play George Emerson (he seems like he could brood well) and I have no clue who I'd have playing Lucy. Honestly I feel like Helena Bonham Carter did a great job, however that was back when she was 19.

The great British author of his time?
Where does A Room with a View rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Which scene was your favorite?
The shock of the street murder.
Any additional comments?
This great essay into the crippling restraints on British women of his time is well worth the read. The reader held me glued to the story - the only real test of a reader of novels.
