Lawrence's style is bold, intimate and inventive and he always has the capacity to shock. His great strength comes from the realism of the characters he portrays and the play on tension - first seen in the exchanges between Gertrude and Morel and continuing with Paul, his Mother and his two women - which never lets up. Then marvel at the depth and quality of the writing as the story moves relentlessly towards its conclusion.

    " i don't know about this book. parts of it were really beautifully written, especially early on but my god it dragged. glad i read it but can't exactly recommend it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sophie | 2/12/2014

    " This book stole valuable minutes of my life, and I want them back. Perhaps I accidentally kept going back over the same five pages, but this book just seemed to repeat itself ad infinitum. I think I got perhaps half way through, after what felt like 5000 pages of him sitting in bushes with Miriam thinking about his mother. I had to choose between finishing this book, and retaining what was left of my sanity. Do not read unless you currently feel you do not have enough boredom in your life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sluggish Neko | 1/29/2014

    " The writing is lovely but the tortured relationships Paul Morel has with his two lovers and his mother are laid out in an excruciatingly glacial pace. The subject of a broken marriage of an alcoholic miner and disappointed wife was more interesting than the uncomfortably close bond between mother and son, a subject matter which was just plain disturbing and sad. Now that's one way NOT to raise a son. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel | 1/18/2014

    " Before Freud? Before Freud? There must have been something in the air. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 11/30/2013

    " Assigned in my least favorite college English class; perhaps that's why I dislike it? #9 on the 100 Best English Language Novels of the 20th Century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 11/30/2013

    " Amazing in its insight. I am a mother of two boys and this blew me away. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marianne | 11/30/2013

    " Oh. My. God. Talk about Oedipus complex! This guy is in love with his mom and no other woman will compare. The only thing that's interesting about this book is that it's semi-autobiographical and rather sexually explicit for its time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zöe Zhai | 11/28/2013

    " not so strong emotion inside "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isolabella | 11/26/2013

    " A complex relationships between mother and son. Enjoyed this classic novel such a great writer that he was. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meredith Armstrong | 11/21/2013

    " Usually when I hate a book this much, I don't finish it. This one I did and to this day still I want those hours of my life back, thankyouverymuch. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan | 9/16/2013

    " Spousal abuse, Oedipus complexes, agnosticism, coal-mining. In other words, 20th century England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leni King | 7/2/2013

    " Quite readable and well written. A formidable writer, but somehow a bit empty still. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rusty Tobin | 5/31/2013

    " Read this for a book club. Perhaps it was scandalous when it was written in 1913 but appears very dated now. Tedious examination of a young man's relationship with women. I loved her, I hated her, I loved her etc. Not particularly well written which surprised me since the author is so well known. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 5/2/2013

    " My first experience with D.H. Lawrence, and I was very pleased by his writing. The book had some interesting events, but there were parts that you were bored with so much description. I believe the book was a bit too long (about 100 pages) otherwise it had some interesting part to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 sidiklikontes | 3/18/2013

    " A Freudian reading makes it perfect, otherwise it is boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 1/20/2013

    " One of those novels that is so well put together that I end up loving it despite the fact that on paper it's not my cup of tea. I think the key to this one is brilliantly crafted characters, particularly the protagonist Paul. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alice Z | 12/12/2012

    " The main character was a dull, wishy-washy mama's boy. Couldn't stand him, nor the way he treated others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Kowalsky | 6/4/2012

    " I've never seen someone get so worked up for kissing in my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Excalibur2099 | 3/17/2012

    " I tried reading other books by D.H. Lawrence, but this is the only one that did anything for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ke Huang | 11/22/2011

    " I guess I should have read enough D.H. Lawrence to know that the relationships in his novels wouldn't be conventional. While I liked most of the work, I found the character Paul to be too autobiographical and overall unlikable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marty | 10/8/2011

    " Again, this one is part of my leather classics. Don't remember it - but know I read it. Need to reread it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Mark | 6/18/2011

    " A wonderful novel of a boy who loves his mother a little too much. At first, when Lawrence is laying down the background, the story is a bit shaky and seems to move rather quickly. But once he settles down and slows a bit, the novel really shines. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 5/31/2011

    " Not a huge fan. It's basically the story of an egoist character partially based upon on the young life of the egoist author. He had to of used the term "he hated her" about 100+ times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony | 5/18/2011

    " See the flowers. Smell the flowers. Take them! Mother! Mother! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 5/11/2011

    " I can see why it was controversial at the time but overall I wasn't impressed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaworu | 5/2/2011

    " Fairly interesting, although I admit a tad dry at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 4/11/2011

    " This book is fantastic. It takes Lawrence awhile to say what he wants to say but I found it to be worth the wait. Clara was a bore but I adored Miriam. Lawrence's obsession on love and hate existing as one is quite interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 4/8/2011

    " BRILLIANT. Captures relationships between men and women and mothers and sons so well. Influence of the countryside and nature on the characters is beautiful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caroline | 4/4/2011

    " This was a set book when I was at school. It was OK but I don't want to read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 3/30/2011

    " This book was okay. The characters weren't memorable. The only bit of interesting language was the way he captured the dialect. Generally boring. "
