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 novel with the line a perfectly adjusted organism would be silent it is no surprise that the centre of this cloud of writing is the idea of the difficulty or the possible impossibility of communication and direct connection between peopleInstead understanding has to be intuitive and incommunicable Mrs Moore knows nothing has happened but can t convince her son how she knows or how Professor Godbole knows about her and the wasp is unclear and if we don t like telepathy as an answer then we are best off not asking the uestion just as we are best off not asking what if anything happened in the Marabar caves Miss uested experienced something but even EM Forster screwed up the draft versions that attempted to give her point of view as that something occurred A clear statement would run counter to the intuitive direction of this novel Nothing can make sense in the unreality of our group think some alternative means of perception something view spoiler or Moore then again the name could be meant to suggest Moor as though admittedly through marriage she has a non British outlook to start with hide spoiler
