I hadn't read this in decades and I had forgotten how funny it is at first, the skewering of the pretensions of the upper middle class. But then.... once it got serious and we had to accept all the posturing about emotions and somehow that wasn't the stuff of satire, it lost me. A very mixed bag. I wish Forster had stuck with the comedy and had lost the message.
