The author must have written this book for a middle class audience - written in 1913 when the working class readership was probably rather limited - who would have a glimpse into another world, but one they are happy not to join!
Little of the wonderful prose and characterization found in his last novel, "Lady Chatterley's Lover" (1928), but well written and thoughtful. The second half does introduce some deep characterization, but with no explicit sexual scenes what so ever. In fact it is remarkable that the some characters talk of having made love but there was nothing written about those alleged intimacies!
A very sad story with some bright moments, but probably not suitable for someone predisposed towards depression!
Despite knowing the story I found it engaging. I enjoyed it. E-books have their detractors but one advantage is that you read books that you wouldn't go out and buy. I find myself reading something current then something old. It's widening my horizons. If you're thinking of reading this, just don't expect a modern day thriller, like some reviewers seem to. There isn't a thrill on every page or murder around every corner. Although Paul Morel's mother's death has it's own slant here. I wondered if Lawrence was writing today, he would find no problem with the censors, but the police may well have some interest in him and his sister. Exhumations and forensic testing perhaps.
The characters are expertly drawn and their interactions are what involves me in this book. Lawrence's observations of the countryside, the way of life in the early part of the twentieth century, the fashions even are fascinating and a great historical record. It just adds to the genuineness of the work. No need to read modern historical novels here. This is the real thing.
One of the greatest novels ever written in my opinion.
Anyone who is new to the works of D.H.L., would be well advised to read this book in order to understand something of the man himself, and the dynamics played out in this family.
I love the descriptions of the countryside; fields full of bluebells and primroses, and this reveals the advantages of life in that era as well as the difficulties. It is so interesting to compare life then with life now.
A beautifully written book. The sexual scenes are implied rather than explicit, and I enjoyed this too. Also the deep insight into relationships. Mrs Morel, especially stands out so vividly.
Well worth reading.
