The Girl in Room 105 by Chetan BhagatHi, I’m Keshav, and my life is screwed. I hate my job and my girlfriend left me. Ah, the beautiful Zara. Zara is from Kashmir. She is a Muslim. And did I tell you my family is a bit, well, traditional? Anyway, leave that.
Zara and I broke up four years ago. She moved on in life. I didn’t. I drank every night to forget her. I called, messaged, and stalked her on social media. She just ignored me.
However, that night, on the eve of her birthday, Zara messaged me. She called me over, like old times, to her hostel room 105. I shouldn’t have gone, but I did… and my life changed forever.
This is not a love story. It is an unlove story.
"A Room with a View" by Forster: BerkeleyX Book Club
The Murder 4. The Drive to the Countryside. Immediately after his return from Italy and Greece Edward Morgan Forster took up the work with a novel that can be considered as the prototype of A Room with a View. But he stopped working on it for some time, and a few years passed before he dealt again with it. The critic on the constrictive and rigid rules of social life in English society has often been an issue discussed by Edward Morgan Forster, and it is a central issue in A Room with a View. Furthermore Forster calls attention to the behaviour of the English people abroad. He introduces very different characters in order to show different points of view and behaviours.
The last brought him his greatest success. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 16 different years. His name was officially registered as Henry Morgan Forster, but at his baptism he was accidentally named Edward Morgan Forster. His father died of tuberculosis on 30 October , before Morgan's second birthday. This house served as a model for Howards End, as he had fond memories of his childhood there.
A Room with a View can be seen as a romance novel, revolving around the romantic plot of Lucy and her decision between George and Cecil. With Cecil, Lucy has a rational relationship with gradually growing affection, of which her family approves. He is from a respectable social background, and her mother is pleased at the match between Lucy and him. It grows out of sudden moments of immediate attraction in ways that traditional society finds inappropriate. Lucy herself is unaware of her own feelings for George for most of the novel.
A Room with a View is a novel by English writer E. Forster , about a young woman in the restrained culture of Edwardian era England.

At their pension, or guesthouse, in Florence, they are given rooms that look into the courtyard rather than out over the river Arno. Emerson, a fellow guest, generously offers them the rooms belonging to himself and his son George. Although Charlotte is offended by Mr. Emerson's lack of tact and propriety, she finally does agree to the switch. Lucy is an avid young pianist. Beebe, watches her passionate playing and predicts that someday she will live her life with as much gusto as she plays the piano.
