Title : A Room With A View
Author : E.M. Forster

Oh Forster, thank you for a good classic! A quite realistic classic. A love story; choosing between the ideal and the real. It was a refresher on how the people in that times live; going places, learning books by heart, appreciating nature and history. Snippets of society class prejudice thrown in. And love. Yes, my type of love. Plus some nudity (well, its just boys playing in the lake). And the realistic love triumphs! Put in Italy and Greece in, and there, you get Forster's novel. Watch the movie too! It's quite a different portrayal than what I had in mind, but a good one nevertheless.

The best quote from the book: 

"Then they spoke of other things - the desultory talk of those who have been fighting to reach one another, and whose reward is to rest quietly in each other's arms." - A Room With A View, E.M.Forster
