1 review about Howard's End by E.M Forster

Shows the dangers of upper class English mingling with squalid lower middle class (maybe 1907?)

This book freaked me out.  It reminds me (uncomfortably) of my life where I'm always trying to get financially stable and never quite get there.  Anybody with half  a brain would love this book, but if you are turned off by bon mots and pretty speeches, avoid it.  The two sisters talk flowery language all the time.  The Merchant Ivory Fims don't do justice to the Forster books, the writing is so good.  So here's the plot, desperate lower class insurance clerk finds his life is tied up with two fancy, rich, educated ladies.  The insurance clerk tries to come off as all cultivated to impress the sisters.  The ladies decide to help him out with career advice and tea parties, but disasters happen.  The killer part is when one sister gets married to an old widower and the clerk comes to crash the wedding with an old burlesque dancer.
