This is where kindle really comes into its own. Some thirty years after slogging through 'The Rainbow' for A Levels, it seemed like a good idea to revisit Mr Lawrence without the frisson of fear that comes from a three hour exam in a baking school gymnasium.

Tremendous value for money, great to pick and choose amongst the 'lesser' or 'greater' novels. The five stars are not meant to be a comment on each book but a reflection of the excellent value of this product.

D. H. Lawrence was one of the most controversial literary figures of the first half of the 20th Century. He died in 1930 at the age of 44 and crammed an enormous amount of activity into his short lifetime -- he wrote prodigiously (novels, reviews, literary criticism, poems -- about 800 -- short stories, travel books), he painted, travelled extensively, and lived in various exciting and beautiful places, he saw some of his books banned and even burned.

Very far to the right in his political views and scornful of democracy, in his novels he explores the struggle of the human spirit with a sterile social order and uncovers much of the power of human sexuality that is too often hidden from view - and was reviled as a pornographer for his pains!

This complete set of his novels comprises a fascinating exploration of passion and power in human relationships. This edition provides them all well formatted and illustrated,not to mention at an extraordinarily low price).

Excellent value for this collection considering most of Lawrence's novels are longish. D.H. Lawrence has somewhat fallen out of fashion since his heyday of the 60s and 70s. There are many reasons for this, not least the fact that the 60s Counter Culture embraced him yet contemporary readers find him somewhat old-fashioned and dated. Further, his reputation rests largely on one book, Lady Chatterley's Lover, which is arguably his weakest novel and we tend to forget or ignore the earlier masterpieces.

This is a superb collection and incredible value. Hopefully, it opens the way for a new generation of readers to enjoy and appreciate his works. Sons & Lovers, The Rainbow and Women In Love are amongst the finest novels ever written in English and for me DHL is the greatest English writer of the 20th Century.

Good to have all the novels together. I have most individually but the development of Lawrence's style is interesting as you read through the novels. Well worth it.

Not only is the work of one of the 20th century's best novelists, it is beautifully tabulated for a kindle with no spelling errors. Fabulous value for money.

Such a beautifully written collection of stories. The descriptions take you to another place and time. The English language is just not used like this anymore, which is such a pity as it really is inspiring.
I think everyone should read at least one DHLawrence book to see how books can open your eyes.
