Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam O'Connor | 2/16/2014

    " obviously a classic. a long read, but worth it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melinda | 2/14/2014

    " It isn't nearly as racy as the title suggested. This was recommended by my library as a "classic must read" It's about a man who it torn between the love he has for his mother and 2 women. The sex is nearly nonexistent, like they go for a walk and then he is helping her fix her hair and you are wondering why her hair got messy and then you realize, "Oh, it was that kind of walk." The ending was realistic and completely lack luster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karma Chameleon | 2/8/2014

    " This is an entire book about a guy who fails at romance because he's too much in love with his mother. Christ. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marguerite | 2/7/2014

    " I read this on vacation -- I know it's a classic, but it was very hard to care about the main character (which Lawrence modeled after himself). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daisy | 2/5/2014

    " Eh, I really only liked some of this. I suppose I should've liked it better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Leroy | 2/4/2014

    " This book was great. I would be reading a long not paying much attention and then Lawrence would have a beautiful phrase that summarizes love or existence. The characters in the book are relatable and brilliantly complex. Miriam, perhaps the character I related the most to, doesn't belong in this world but at the same time is the most grounded character in the book. Clara, at times would make me howl at her cruelty but then pages later love her vulnerability. Paul, the protagonist at times was an evil, selfish intellectually hardened man but always to make himself feel better it seems. The chapter where his mother passes away is heart wrenching and the a brutally raw description of death's effect on a family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie Jensen | 1/24/2014

    " This book was a really good read, although it did have spelled out dialect which I despise...but not too much of it - a bit risque for the time period it was written in but a very intense story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/18/2014

    " Excellent book. A little slow getting off the ground but very well worth the effort. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cate | 12/30/2013

    " hard to get through all 600 pages. the sex scenes are great though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 12/25/2013

    " LOVED this story and it's characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Douglas | 12/6/2013

    " Great story about a young man's friendship with his mother, growing up in rural England in the early 20th century. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 12/1/2013

    " Very, very long. Loved the writing. Disliked the plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 8/24/2013

    " Wow ! Not a quick read for me - oddly deep and troubling at times , but well worth trudging through . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 7/28/2013

    " Complex and intricate. The end was unexpected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leni King | 3/16/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Senglish English | 7/5/2012

    " Read in univeristy English - was very impressed!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette Hornby | 5/27/2012

    " Not as scandalous as they claimed it to be. Pretty tame actually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Gager | 1/26/2012

    " I read some of this, maybe all of it, many years ago and remember very little. I think I thought there might be some sex in it. Date read is a guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane | 10/30/2011

    " This is why you should not over-honor your mother - she never dies and you never live. "

  • 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. "

About the Author

David Herbert Lawrence (1885–1930), novelist, short-story writer, poet, critic, playwright, and essayist, was one of the most important and controversial figures of twentieth-century English literature. His works confront the dehumanizing effects of modernity and industrialization and are notable for their passionate intensity and for a sensuality that centers on the erotic. Though his opinions earned him enemies, persecution, and censorship during his lifetime, he is now recognized as an artistic visionary.
