Summary

Lady Chatterley's Lover was the subject of one of the most infamous trials of the 20th century when Penguin was prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act. However, with expert witnesses for the defence, including E.M. Forster, Penguin was acquitted and permitted to publish in 1960. The book became a best seller largely on account of explicit scenes of a sexual nature and use of four letter words. However, re-reading again over 40 years later, one realises that although the sex scenes are still graphic even today, the book is about much more than sex. It covers love, class, disability, family relationships, infertility, politics, and that 'bitch-goddess' success.

Taboo for a reason

This book caused much stir among readers for a good reason. Creative descriptions but a good plot as well. The author makes us feel for the protagonist and almost cheer for her. I would not recommend letting children read this.

Less is not more...

Although well done and read, the cheat version of DH Lawrence's classic can never stand up to the novel as originally penned.
