Howards End is the story of the liberal Schlegel sisters and their struggle to come to terms with social class and their German heritage in Edwardian England. Their lives are intertwined with those of the wealthy and pragmatic Wilcox family and their country house, Howards End, as well as the lower-middle-class Basts. When Helen Schlegel and Paul Wilcox's brief romance ends badly the Schlegels hope to never see the Wilcoxes again.

11 Hours of my life I will NEVER get back
Plot as dull as cardboard but great narration, would I recommend it... in a pinch, I guess it is still considered literature, but there is a great movie version and an even better mini series.
