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 woman of middle-class family and a miner) in the tough world of coal mining, it brought a refreshing realism to literature. It remains a challenging text (and is studied widely). It is particularly effective as an audiobook in the hands of reader Paul Slack, who comes from Nottinghamshire.

    " This book was recommended to me by my friend. When I first started to read it (listen to Librivox recording) I found it boring and I stopped. But I started again and I really enjoyed it. For me this is one of the best books I have ever read. "

    " Paul Morel and his struggle. Anyone who has ever lived "the living body" (D.H. Lawrence, Why the novel matters) will understand his existential dilemma. Sentences like "The cloud is on fire today" prove why Lawrence is called an impressionist painter. This was the first book by Lawrence that I read. I have been his fan eversince. "

    " Another Lawrence tour-de-force. Exquisite portrayal of coming of age and intergenerational struggles for liberation and self-realization. Masterful! "
