A woman servant came into a room in which a child was sleeping and drew the curtains. She glanced mechanically at the house opposite, a stucco house with a portico, and went to the child's bed. "Wake up, Philip," she said. She pulled down the bed-clothes, took him in her arms, and carried him downstairs. He was only half awake. "Your mother wants you," she said.

Download and read online Of Human Bondage in PDF and EPUB A novel of nearly seven hundred pages which follows in intimate detail the fortunes of an English youth during his first twenty-odd years. Philip Carey, orphaned at nine, possessing few qualities either of mind or heart that point to greatness, is the hero. His dun-colored existence, of little consequence to anybody but himself, is frankly and painstakingly portrayed, with no less effort at plain dealing with his excursions into forbidden byways than with his rough handling out in the open where men and women light for the competence that keeps body and soul together. The truth and sincerity of the portrayal commend it to readers.

Believed to be W. Somerset Maugham’s crowning masterpiece, this coming of age story follows the life of Philip Carey, an orphan born with a clubfoot who aches to experience the life and love so carefully starved out of him by his cold, uncompromising uncle, a man whose disdain for Philip is matched by his religious fervor. Spending much of his young life moving from boarding school to boarding school, Philip is an academic success, but his every attempt at lasting friendship ends in painful solitude. As his loneliness ferments into bitterness, Philip boldly casts aside his uncle’s plans for him to become a doctor like the many men in his family. He cannot stand a moment more in a boarding school, and leaves to become an artist. Free for the first time, Philip discovers more about himself than he ever has before. He grapples with his own identity, God, his talent as an artist, and the loneliness that does not leave him even when finally surrounded by people. When he returns to London to finally study medicine, he encounters a brash and bold waitress named Mildred and falls hopelessly in love for the first time. Starved of affection for so long, Mildred is a force that threatens to consume Philip’s entire life. For more classic titles like this, visit www.diversionbooks.com/ebooks/diversion-classics
