I read A Passage To India for my Completist Book Club on Goodreads This is a book that I may have never even heard of if it was not for that group For those who are curious it is a club that chooses books from must read lists to read each month Because of this club I have been able to find some interesting some challenging and sadly even some boring books that I cannot figure out why they are must reads But whatever the case I am always glad to be a part of the group because it has really expanded my reading horizonsIn the case of A Passage To India I can see why it is a classic It is a tale of British Imperial rule in India and how people on both sides British and Indian handle all the tensions and issues this causes Also the main Indian character is not Hindu but Muslim and there is a lot about being Muslim in a country where that is not the main religion It is all very relatable to modern day issuesI have been going back and forth between 3 and 4 stars Some of the parts were very riveting but others left me wanting I think it was about 5050 But I am going to go with 4 stars because the message and the historical significance of this story solidify it as a classicFunny thing I was planning to go 3 stars when I started writing this review but I talked myself into 4 stars

In a rather ironic piece of narration EM Forster sums up my opinion of this book perfectly Most of life is so dull that there is nothing to be said about it and the books and talk that would describe it as interesting are obliged to exaggerate in the hope of justifying their own existence Indeed this book was so terribly dull Ordinary bland and mundane are all words that spring to mind Nothing happened other than a single piece of melodrama that somehow managed to dominate the book I understand why this book is so widely read and studied From a critical postcolonial perspective there are lots of juicy bits in here to dissect There s a lot to talk about and I could easily write an essay on it because it raises so many important debates about race and national identity in the wake of colonialism Seeing the true face of India becomes a difficult task because it has become so obscured with foreign influence and prejudicesIndeed the book is fiercely anti imperialist and presents a compelling case for the benefits of an independent India It also highlights the injustices the Indian native faced Colonial rule is never good and the coloniser always thinks his ways are better to the detriment of local culture education and employment He takes over and ruins everything despite how much he naively believes that he is improving the life of those he is oppressing Despite all this the plot has no energy There were perhaps a few chapters no that forty pages or so where the narrative managed to gain some momentum The protagonist was imprisoned for a crime he didn t do and the bits leading up to his trial were uite engaging When the verdict was eventually reached the rest of the novel dribbled on There was no story left Yet it continued for another hundred pages This meant that for a relatively short book this felt like a really really long book This is a book I SHOULD have liked I was really surprised at my reaction to this This is a book that appeals directly to my interests yet it just seemed so painfully convoluted and dull I did however really appreciate EM Forster s prose He is a very skilful writer and a wordsmith his sentences and paragraphs roll into each other perfectly This seems like a generic point though I only make it because the surface level of his writing is so elouent in places It s just a shame the plot did not carry the same level of mastery It just needed to be tighter and focused to be effective Like Heart of Darkness it occupies an uncertain place in the cannon of English literature it s not uite radical enough and prejudice free to be fully anti colonial yet is still demonstrates the need for change It s a book I could study but never one I could enjoy Although I didn t like this I will still be trying another one of EM Forster s novels in the future

A Passage to India seems a bolder statement on Colonialism and racism than ever The Indians are thoughtful and droll speaking about the trouble making friends with Englishmen who become less personable the longer they are in India The British seem to a man all about keeping the Indian down of holding the colony by force The writing is beautiful I just finished EL Doctorow s The March which errs on the purplish side at times There s no such overwriting here Even when one reads slowly the prose constantly surprises And this is my second or third reading too Few books I have found can sustain such interest over the years Lolita Madame Bovary Germinal they are rare This time through I find myself astonished by Forster s skill at under describing his characters This techniue adds to the fleeting lighter than air aspect of the writing He d much rather talk about a gesture say or the layout of a house But the characters are left very flat if not without description altogether We must go by their voices Under description of this sort was highly recommended by El Leonard too in his day He was another master of it Part Two opens with the story of the developing geology the India Venturing into the Marabar Caves whose substance is hundreds of millions of years old is to enter the primordial It is to be shown something ancient far outside the mental and emotional scope of homo sapiens who are no older than 100000 years and probably closer to 50000 Forster s fascination here is with the numinous Adela and Mrs Moore have since their arrival talked of nothing than seeing the real India In her uest for this passage to India Adela enters the caves with little knowledge of their history and there finds herself face to face with the numinous But in its most primitive essence which of course includes the erotic and just like that her heretofore admirable open mindedness is overwhelmed by the true otherness of India Overwhelmed by fear she makes an egregious category mistake a reductio ad absurdum that upends the lives of all the main characters An unwarranted charge of attempted rape is lodged against Dr AzizAziz s arrest reminded of the US s current epidemic of frightened white cops shooting unarmed black men These events are euitable only to the extent that both are examples of raw racism run amok Aziz however will get a trial and be acuitted Our shooting victims will never get that even posthumously as we have seen The novel is a big nail in the coffin of the Old India Hands My God how Forster must have been hated for writing it How dare he besmirch their generations of service in keeping the Indian down It s a very brave book Forster indicts his nation in 1924 twenty three years before Partition All the insipid reasons for being in India are trotted out and shown to be lies Britain was not in India to pass down a legacy of democratic administration that was an unexpected and lucky outcome It doesn t matter what Niall Ferguson says about the benevolence of the so called Raj in Empire The Rise and Demise of the British World Order This was commercial exploitation at its basest That the British left slightly fewer corpses in their wake than King Leopold of Belgium did in the Congo is not an argument in their favorOne final note on this Folio Society edition It s a beautiful book on acid free paper with sewn signatures wonderful to handle Even turning the pages is a joy But the illustrations by Glynn Boyd Harte are wretched and annoying The book is best unadorned
