    The Eternal Moment is on the longish side for a short story It is similar in feel toA Passage to India , in that it describes the personal mental and emotional journey of its central character, as much as her literal journey in the Italian Alps By the end the destination is reached, both physically, and in the sense of her inward revelations about herself.A common motif in Forster s works, is that of a long remembered fleeting experience, which affects an individual s later life fartha The Eternal Moment is on the longish side for a short story It is similar in feel toA Passage to India , in that it describes the personal mental and emotional journey of its central character, as much as her literal journey in the Italian Alps By the end the destination is reached, both physically, and in the sense of her inward revelations about herself.A common motif in Forster s works, is that of a long remembered fleeting experience, which affects an individual s later life farthan could ever be expected at the time There is such a pivotal moment in this story, around which the story forms itself The central character, Miss Raby, is a successful novelist, yet feels unsatisfied in her emotional life, and distanced from all her social peers She pays only lip service to the middle class attitudes and behaviour of those around her, frequently making comments, or b...

    Of the six stories presented here, the title story struck me as very good, Co ordination as all right, two others, Mr Andrews and The Story of the Siren, as so so, and the first two in the collection The Machine Stops and The Point of It as entirely too obvious in their separate purposes and almost tiresome The Machine Stops is one of those dystopian tales that can t get out of its own way, telegraphing both meaning and conclusion from almost the first page In the far future, hum Of the six stories presented here, the title story struck me as very good...

    Sep 09 i discovered a bunch of my What Do I Read Nextreviews from the mid 90s when i was on a serious SF canon reading tear and, apparently, averse to capital letters According to a very brief introduction, this volume along with Celestial Omnibus encompasses all that Forster is likely to accomplish in a particular line i initially assumed that the particular line meant fantastical fiction, but after reading the title story, i m guessingSep 09 i discovere...

    The strongest story here is the title story, The Eternal Moment The lead story The Machine Stops is OK, but Forster is totally out of his element he is no H G Wells The middle stories are OK, but strike me as minor.Ah, but The Eternal Moment This is E M Forster at his best The setting upper class English people travelling in Switzerland Baedeker in hand is his forte The structure is that of a short story, focusing on a single event, but that event is thoroug...

    An odd little book, and unfortunately opening with the weakest story But I am glad to have found it One gets into a rut of imagining their favorite authors existing within a certain style, and here Forster stretches that style most attributed to him And yet, I am not entirely surprised his other short story collection The Life to Come has simila...

    When I think of E.M Forster, I think Passage to India, A Room with a View, Merchant and Ivory But most of the stories in this book are far from the English manor novels that Forster is known for The first story, The Machine Stops is some of the best science fiction I ve read, on par with Philip K Dick or Roger Zelazny The Point of It and Mr Andrews delve into the subject of the afterlife, with mixed success, in my opinion The title story does a good job of showing how change and pro When I think of E.M Forster, I think Passage to India, A Room with a Vi...

    Whoa, did this really take me 8 months to finish Well, seems about right This was my first Forster so I was really excited to dive in His writing is actually pretty interesting at first, quirky and unpredictably perceptive careful and articulate Very much having to do with time, age, class, existentialism and boredom but it got old fast, and the prose started to feel weirdly suffocating May have been how he structured the shorts as well I still want to read A Room with a View, but mayb Whoa, did this really take me 8 months to finish Well, seems about right This was my first Forster so I was really excited to dive in His writing is actually pretty interesting at first, quirky and unpredictably perceptive careful and articulate Very m...
