E.M. Forsters intense and moving story asks a listener serious questions about preconceptions regarding race, sex, religion and truth. Forsters to-the-point writing style makes this audio version of the classic story a real experience. Adele Quested and Dr. Aziz enter the Indian Marabar caves together, emerging to allegations of rape directed at Dr. Aziz and a subsequent trial. Adela never actually accuses Dr. Aziz of raping her, and makes decisions which ostracise her from both her fellow British countrymen and many of the natives. A hard-hitting political/philosophical work, Forsters masterpiece is also exotic and descriptive, a perfect suit for audio.
