Like all of E. M. Forsters novels, the plot of The Longest Journey is secondary to the underlying themes - the new mechanical society that Forster hated, being true to oneself and class structure.

Forsters novels, the plot of The Longest Journey is secondary to the underlying themes - the new mechanical society that Forster hated, being true to oneself and class structure. In The Longest Journey, E. M. Forster follows the character of Rickie Elliot from his Cambridge days through various attempts to find happiness and fulfillment in life. The fascinating thing about the novel is that there isnt a single character that you can pinpoint as good or bad -- like real people, the characters lie and put on false fronts. Characters like Agnes, who Rickie loves, and Mrs. Failing, his relative, make some great points about women in society. Though The Longest Journey is primarily a novel of manners like Jane Austen would write, there are several exciting plot twists, including a surprise ending. If you enjoy books by authors like Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy, try E. M. Forsters The Longest Journey.
