This is why I am sometimes loathe to re-read books. I had read this book in June 2006 and adored it. I knew nothing of the Howard's End premise (bad English major!) - I just thought it was fun reading. I re-read it for a current book club, and my impression was "meh." Too much swearing, too much needless description without function (do ALL novelists feel the need to include so much superfluous description? It is HIGHLY ANNOYING! Just like when people write in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS). The characters seemed like shells of real people propped up to convey some philosphical idea, to my dismay as a reader. I like characters to be real people, not ideas with clothing and a voice. Also, too much swearing. The only thing I really enjoyed on the second read was the astute portrayal of campus politics.
