E. M. Forster’s book is not recommended for those who are looking for suspense. In spite of the ominous title of the book, the plot actually isn’t as dark.
Where Angels Fear to Tread discusses social differences and their effect on people’s characters and relationships. It shows how people who are forced to behave in certain manners seldom do, and that leads to undesired consequences.
What I liked about the book: the weaved web of social and interpersonal events which gave the plot a certain amount of depth.
What I disliked about the book: the showing instead of telling; and the jumping from one era to another sometimes within the same line.
I just discovered that this book was made into a movie. Did anyone watch it? What do you think of the movie version of the book?
