Women In Love studies the nature of relationships between men and women through four very different characters, each of whom seeks fulfilment in their own way. Gudrun seeks an intellectual equal, while for Ursula, overwhelming love is all that will suffice; Gerald attempts to fill his emotional void with success and physicality, whereas Birkin desires total commitment from both his lover and his friend. Lawrence uses the foursome to form a complex emotional web, voicing his own views through the semi-autobiographical figure of Birkin.

Listener Opinions

    " Nobody can articulate the psychology of love like D.H. Lawrence. It's quite incredible. Just don't read it for plot, though there is a surprise at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrian | 2/9/2014

    " DH Lawrence doesn't hold anything back, which makes him worth the effort. His commitment to exploring every last molecule of his characters inner lives - and to describing their physical surroundings in great detail - gives this book its crazy momentum. It's a really strange novel, with some truly awful, Mills and Boon style passages, but the insights are in there somewhere, and there is absolutely nothing dogmatic or schematic about it, just outpouring after outpouring... and then more outpouring. "

    " read this in Italy. Liked it alot, interesting views of relationships "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victory Wong | 1/24/2014

    " I read WIL awhile ago. It's perhaps a reflection of DH Lawrence that I cannot really remember that much about it. All the details are mushing together just like The Rainbow--which I read in a hurry for college. Some beautiful writing but apparently not enough to stick in my brain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsty | 1/21/2014

    " Great literature, although I didn't really feel any kind of affinity for any of the characters, but I suppose that is what Lawrence had in mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rossana | 1/20/2014

    " Currently reading for book club "

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

    " I can understand why some people don't like this book, or DH Lawrence in general - this book set expectations early on that it might be a nice, turn of the century love story. I had to think about this book for a long time after reading it before I truly realized the sheer genius of it, even if it wasn't one of my favorites. However, Lawrence is able to penetrate and reveal the deepest parts of ourselves; more specifically, the parts of the personality that are revealed when one is in love. It may not be a satisfying read, and it took some effort to get all the way through, but in retrospect it was worth the read. Having read this, no doubt I'll pick up my other Lawrence novels and read them as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 1/16/2014

    " Not memorable for me. But I know I really liked everything I ever read by DH Lawrence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 1/10/2014

    " Fuck D. H. Lawrence for being better at writing than me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 12/20/2013

    " Yet could not make myself hi very far in this book...tried a couple times! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sofia | 12/9/2013

    " Read it during university. Hell, I even wrote an exam on it, but I couldn't tell you for the life of me what it was about. I do, however, recall a scene wherein two men wrestle. That is all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crystal | 11/20/2013

    " I could not put this one down, well...except to use the restroom and go to work and stuff. But even those things didn't stop me at times :-) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Geoffrey Underwood | 11/19/2012

    " I had to put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Micucci | 9/27/2012

    " There's no one who can capture the fleeting and troubled moment in a relationship quite as DH Lawrence. Brutally honest and sexually charged, perhaps misleadingly titled. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evalyn | 9/5/2012

    " Not an easy read but not because of the writing. The characters aren't particularly likeable and their negativity and disillusionment doesn't come across as well as the "lost generation" of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. That said, Lawrence's writing is at times very beautiful. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 erin | 6/30/2012

    " trying to read this is a chore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Polina Semenova | 6/17/2012

    " I really loved some parts of it, finding other parts tedious and drawn out... Really not sure who I would recommend this to "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 1/19/2012

    " Took forever, but was worth it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zena | 10/25/2011

    " I skipped the first two days of classes my freshman year of college to finish reading this book! LOVE D.H. Lawrence. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erika S | 9/23/2011

    " Terrible book, do not read. It's very long and very boring. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mandy | 7/9/2011

    " I have no love for this book. I couldn't even finish it, and I can't remember the last time I didn't finish a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/24/2011

    " This was not an easy book. The characters are almost too complicated for the reader to relate too. Still, it's got a dark feel to it that pulls you in and keeps you going until the surprising resolution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hillary | 6/2/2011

    " I might need to re-read this. I read it as a teen and a lot of it was over my head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evalyn | 5/2/2011

    " Not an easy read but not because of the writing. The characters aren't particularly likeable and their negativity and disillusionment doesn't come across as well as the "lost generation" of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. That said, Lawrence's writing is at times very beautiful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Dennis | 5/2/2011

    " I admire most of his writing but it has to be read in depth. I am studying his theory on ultimate love between two people, male and female. His descriptive pieces are out of this world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zino | 5/1/2011

    " its a psychological novel you should read it times and times and play the role of each character to understand the plot and the theme
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christa | 4/13/2011

    " Not my favorite book but it wasn't bad either. I kinda felt like it was dragging on and would never really get to the point. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janice | 3/31/2011

    " Didn't care for this book. It was tediousfor me to read. "
