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.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

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