It is easy to smile at the consternation this novel caused readers in 1928. The unexpurgated edition was not allowed circulation in Great Britain until 1960. By comparison to today’s standards, passages that once scandalized, now seem quaint, even oddly innocent. But Lady Chatterley retains its appeal, not only as one of the first novels whose characters discussed sexuality openly, but as a moving story of a woman who defies convention to find happiness.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jen | 1/20/2014

    " I read this book because I have been trying to read some of the "classics" and also because it was a banned book and I wanted to see what the hype was about. For the time it was written it was definitely racy with lots of f*** and c*** words scattered throughout. There are plenty of sex scenes. Lawrence does look at the class issue and the difference between men and women in this book and makes you think about how things were and how far we have come, although some things really haven't changed. Parts of the book were utterly boring. I'm not sure I would recommend it to my friends. "

    " I might give this one two and a half stars. There were parts that I liked, and parts that annoyed me. I'm not sure that I can put into words my thoughts on this book. "

    " I now understand why this book was "revolutionary" for its time, it really discussed how sex and passion plays in the life of a woman quite liberally. The book was just okay for me, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kat Morrison | 1/12/2014

    " I think the hype around the story ruined this for me because I expected more and felt a bit disappointed. Having said that, I enjoyed the story and the excellent character descriptions. "
