Has anyone read "Maurice"? How is it?

Terrible -- a fantasy written by a novelist who should have known better. Which doesn't means you shouldn't read it.

His homosexual stories, collected in The Life to Come, are much better than Maurice (I felt so sinful reading them before I came out).

I loved Room With a View and Passage is a masterpiece. I'll skip Maurice and get Howard's End next.

I don't think I've ever read a novel by him but I love the stories in The Celestial Omnibus.

His other stories are pretty ace, too, including SF classic 'The Machine Stops'.

'eternal moment' appears to be a collection of these, with introduction on how he is "unlikely to attempt anything further along this line"

Rereading The Longest Journey sounds like a good idea.
