A Passage to India, E. M. Forster's exotic and emotive masterpiece is set in the era of The British Raj in India, the stunning narrative presents a complex and unsettled society through the voices and innermost thoughts of its many magnetic characters.

Finding her India very disappointingly English, young British schoolmistress Adela jumps at the chance to travel the distant Marabar Caves with Aziz, a charismatic young Indian doctor, and her elderly friend, Mrs Moore. When Adela is subjected to an attempted assault in one of the caves, Dr. Aziz is arrested and tried in court. The volatile situation forces British India's cracks to widen into chasms, although bridges of hope are found in some open-minded British characters like the logical college principal Mr. Fielding.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine When Adela Quested travels to India to meet her fiancé, she soon finds herself engulfed in a cultural struggle. Forster masterfully reveals colonial India through the eyes of both Indian and British residents. Talented British actress Meera Syal gives a thoughtful reading of Forster's famous novel. With such a wide assortment of characters, voicing dialogue might prove a difficult task, but Syal accomplishes it with expertise. She masters a range of British and Indian accents to produce lively conversations. Her portrayal of the kind-hearted Indian doctor Aziz is as convincing as that of the elderly Mrs. Moore. With this audiobook's combination of Indian music, rich description, and Syal's compelling reading, the listener can expect to enter into the heart of India. T.D.M.
