This book intrigued me so much initially because of the fact that it was first written (and takes place) in the early 1900s, a time when homosexuality was still criminalized. It was so interesting to read from a first-hand source about the different views that individuals, and society in general, had on the subject. I found Maurice’s journey to be beautifully written, and the emotion very raw. The characters are flawed and real, and despite these flaws you still find yourself rooting for them. I really enjoyed “Maurice”, and I believe this book deserves more recognition.
