Summary

Sons and Lovers, Lawrence's third published novel, was written by the author at the height of his literary powers. The story of class differences (the relationship between a middle-class woman and a miner) in the tough world of coal mining brought a refreshing realism to literature. It remains a challenging text and is studied widely. It is particularly effective on audiobook in the hands of Nottinghamshire reader Paul Slack.

a few glitches with the recording

There are a few glitches with this recording- a handful of passages are repeated. However, I enjoy Lawrence and I thought the narrator did a wonderful job- accents were very well done and characters were easy to distinguish.

a very rich experience!

Would you consider the audio edition of Sons and Lovers to be better than the print version?

i do not compare audio books with printed versions. imaginations are very individual. i must say that the performance of this book by Paul Slack was quite excellent.

What did you like best about this story?

the story unfolds slowly yet in such rich verbiage that every passage is a fulfilling experience in itself. the writing is lush without being pretentious and Lawrence's descriptions of the inner workings of the characters are incomparable.

Which scene was your favorite?

i found the modest yet intensely complex love scenes to be particularly touching.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

my experience of this this read was transportive. i felt inside of the story, the settings and the characters.
