Publisher's Summary

The lives of Miss Adela Quested and those around her are forever changed when she befriends a young doctor named Aziz during a trip she and her companion Mrs. Moore make to India. The unlikely friendship between Adela and Aziz eventually culminates in a disastrous expedition to the Marabar caves, during which she offends him, an action which leads to false accusations, arrests, and a litany of miscommunications. Set against the backdrop of the British Raj and the Indian independence movement in the 1920s, this classic novel explores the difficulties that arise from class differences and cultural misunderstandings as well as the impact our actions have on others.

Confusing at Times

Although I love this story, there is much one needs to know about the Hindu/Muslim culture prior to being able to understand the nuances imbedded within this great story. I have a BA in History and should be able to navigate this book, but I found that there was much that was opaque to me, this diminishing my understanding. This particular issue of PTI was well performed and the sound was pure; so if you want to read this great book, choose this edition. The most popular on Audible has sound issues.

Narration was cartoonish.

Sometimes a good character actor works for narration but I found this narrator unbearable.
It killed it for me. I did not finish the book.

A DIFFICULT LISTEN

This one is a tangle of disconnected vignettes with no intelligible plot line. The stage is the late years of imperial India and touches upon many of the sensitive issues between the colonists and the native Indians. Lots of local color and lore but no real story to follow.. Can't recommend.
