Lady Chatterley's Lover

Lady Chatterley's Lover

Lawrence's frank portrayal of an extramarital affair and the explicit sexual explorations of the central characters caused this controversial book, now considered a masterpiece, to be banned as pornography until 1960....

    WARNING: This review contains a discussion of the c-word, and I plan to use it. Please don't read this if you do not want to see the word spelled out. Thanks. This is less a review than an homage to my crazy mother (now I have you really intrigued, don't I?) It was 1983, and I wa...

    I honestly think that if this book hadn't been banned for obscene content, no one would have ever read it. Yes, there are lots of sex scenes (omg scandalous) but all the stuff in between is, for the most part, ungodly boring. The book gets points for having some very intellectual discu...

    Oh man, I wanted to like this soooo bad! So many people complained about it, but I misconstrued their complaints for prudishness or lord knows what. (NOTE TO SELF: Stop judging people's judgements until you can judge for yourself!) But the fact is, two-thirds of the way in I was don...

    Ah, D.H. Lawrence, why are you so awesome? I think Lawrence is one of those writers you either love or hate, and this is possibly even more true of Lady Chatterley's Lover, his last novel. The author's confidence speaks on every page: firstly, Lawrence has no qualms about interjecti...

    3.5 Stars Well.........I can certainly see why LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER was banned soon after publication back in 1928. So okay, you already know or anticipate that this particular classic is going to contain vulgarity and erotic situations, but for the life of me, I never thought it wo...

    *This review contains explicit content* D.H Lawrence, what have you done to me? This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be. This was an experience that I wanted to devour quickly, but that would mean not being able to soak up and bathe in Lawrence's every word, so ...

    I bought this book in high school because it was cheap and I thought that because I was going to be a big, bad Enlglish major in college, I should probably expand my literary repertoire. I also thought it might be a little racy, given the title, which piqued my interest. Fast forward s...

    Okay, DH, so I was sort of with you at the beginning. I was amused by or interested in watching you create a tale that seemed to be a love child of the Lost Gen and existentialist authors that instead turned out a rebelliously nostalgic Romantic, a perverted Wordsworth in a Bacchanalia...

    Book Club Read for November for Sit in Book Club. I finished this book only because it was a bookclub read and in order to discuss a book at meetings I really feel I need the full story. I thought this book was crap and I will try to explain my reasons why. The Novel was banned a...

    _Lady Chatterley's Lover_ There are no words to describe how much i love this book. I mean, i really, really, really do love this book, even if it became vulgar and indelicate at some point, even when i thought it was too much. I couldn't put it down, i had to keep reading, i had to...

    Oh D.H., you eccentric one. You?ve outdone yourself. (Here?s to my fourth Lawrence read, and counting?) This is not your read if you cringe when faced with numerous sexual scenes that depict various sex positions, language that doesn?t shy away from using the four letter ...

    Very explicit for it's time. One of Lawrence's 3 love novels, as I call them; Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. ...

    ?I've not taken ten minutes on Lady Chatterley's Lover, outside of looking at its opening pages. It is most damnable! It is written by a man with a diseased mind and a soul so black that he would obscure even the darkness of hell!" Utah?s Reed Smoot was speaking to the 1930 Sena...

    Lawrence has in recent times fallen out of fashion in the literary world, which is a shame because despite his reputation (often well-deserved) as a misogynist, the themes he explores in this novel go well beyond its sexual reputation. This is a novel about living versus existing. The ...

    I see a lot of my GR friends are currently reading this, so I'll be interested to see what they think of it. I understand the importance of this one--free speech, yo---but honestly, I wasn't blown away. I prefer Ginny Woolf, in fact. Part of it is that Lawrence is too damn Freudian for...

    D.H. Lawrence is a writer I'm growing more fond of. He really does have a way with words. Connie Chatterley, in my opinion, was a rather insipid character. She marries Clifford Chatterley, who gets injured in the war and comes back paralyzed. Consequently, she begins an affair with...

    Before I can say anything about the novel, I have to talk about the novel's first paragraph. I love novel openings sometimes more than I love novels themselves. This novel has one of the best first paragraphs ever, to be ranked with "A Tale of Two Cities". "Ours is essentially a tr...

    I really tried to read this classic, but when Lady Chatterly's lover appeared and fit the description of Groundskeeper Willie from the Simpsons, I just couldn't do it. I mean, D.H. Lawerence has written in Willie's accent phonetically, and Lady Chatterly was having an affair with a car...

    Though this maybe looked at as the book that bought sex writing to the masses, 'Lady Chatterley?s Lover' delivers more than just the oohs and aahs of an elicit love affair, it can also be seen as a parable of post-war England, and the steady rise in modernism. It even features a dog ...

    Lady Chatterley's Lover, David Herbert Richards (D.H.) Lawrence Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence, first published privately in 1928 in Italy, and in 1929 in France and Australia. An unexpurgated edition was not published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. Th...

    Okay, DH, so I was sort of with you at the beginning. I was amused by or interested in watching you create a tale that seemed to be a love child of the Lost Gen and existentialist authors that instead turned out a rebelliously nostalgic Romantic, a perverted Wordsworth in a Bacchanalia...

    Book Club Read for November for Sit in Book Club. I finished this book only because it was a bookclub read and in order to discuss a book at meetings I really feel I need the full story. I thought this book was crap and I will try to explain my reasons why. The Novel was banned a...

    _Lady Chatterley's Lover_ There are no words to describe how much i love this book. I mean, i really, really, really do love this book, even if it became vulgar and indelicate at some point, even when i thought it was too much. I couldn't put it down, i had to keep reading, i had to...

    Oh D.H., you eccentric one. You?ve outdone yourself. (Here?s to my fourth Lawrence read, and counting?) This is not your read if you cringe when faced with numerous sexual scenes that depict various sex positions, language that doesn?t shy away from using the four letter ...

    Very explicit for it's time. One of Lawrence's 3 love novels, as I call them; Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. ...

    ?I've not taken ten minutes on Lady Chatterley's Lover, outside of looking at its opening pages. It is most damnable! It is written by a man with a diseased mind and a soul so black that he would obscure even the darkness of hell!" Utah?s Reed Smoot was speaking to the 1930 Sena...

    Lawrence has in recent times fallen out of fashion in the literary world, which is a shame because despite his reputation (often well-deserved) as a misogynist, the themes he explores in this novel go well beyond its sexual reputation. This is a novel about living versus existing. The ...

    I see a lot of my GR friends are currently reading this, so I'll be interested to see what they think of it. I understand the importance of this one--free speech, yo---but honestly, I wasn't blown away. I prefer Ginny Woolf, in fact. Part of it is that Lawrence is too damn Freudian for...

    D.H. Lawrence is a writer I'm growing more fond of. He really does have a way with words. Connie Chatterley, in my opinion, was a rather insipid character. She marries Clifford Chatterley, who gets injured in the war and comes back paralyzed. Consequently, she begins an affair with...

    Before I can say anything about the novel, I have to talk about the novel's first paragraph. I love novel openings sometimes more than I love novels themselves. This novel has one of the best first paragraphs ever, to be ranked with "A Tale of Two Cities". "Ours is essentially a tr...

    I really tried to read this classic, but when Lady Chatterly's lover appeared and fit the description of Groundskeeper Willie from the Simpsons, I just couldn't do it. I mean, D.H. Lawerence has written in Willie's accent phonetically, and Lady Chatterly was having an affair with a car...

    More sensual than lyrical, more original than accomplished, this is an unusual novel! I've read it quite a long time ago (at least four or five years ago), but I remember it fondly. It is not exactly a significant achievement of literature, but it feels so fresh, I can't help liking it...

    I loved this. Absolutely adored the writing, the war references, character development and even the sex. I probably put off reading this for years as I thought it was the sort of book to be embarrassed reading. The literary equivalent of 50 shades of Grey. I'm not about to try that, bu...

    This book was a bizarre experience for me. It reads much like a traditional, classic English novel, except with loads of descriptive sex and vulgar words mixed in for shock value. Instead of being shocked, though, I just found it all a bit tiresome and rather silly. Maybe it was th...

    Oh D.H., you eccentric one. You?ve outdone yourself. (Here?s to my fourth Lawrence read, and counting?) This is not your read if you cringe when faced with numerous sexual scenes that depict various sex positions, language that doesn?t shy away from using the four letter ...

    Very explicit for it's time. One of Lawrence's 3 love novels, as I call them; Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. ...

    ?I've not taken ten minutes on Lady Chatterley's Lover, outside of looking at its opening pages. It is most damnable! It is written by a man with a diseased mind and a soul so black that he would obscure even the darkness of hell!" Utah?s Reed Smoot was speaking to the 1930 Sena...

    Lawrence has in recent times fallen out of fashion in the literary world, which is a shame because despite his reputation (often well-deserved) as a misogynist, the themes he explores in this novel go well beyond its sexual reputation. This is a novel about living versus existing. The ...

    I see a lot of my GR friends are currently reading this, so I'll be interested to see what they think of it. I understand the importance of this one--free speech, yo---but honestly, I wasn't blown away. I prefer Ginny Woolf, in fact. Part of it is that Lawrence is too damn Freudian for...

    D.H. Lawrence is a writer I'm growing more fond of. He really does have a way with words. Connie Chatterley, in my opinion, was a rather insipid character. She marries Clifford Chatterley, who gets injured in the war and comes back paralyzed. Consequently, she begins an affair with...

    I honestly think that if this book hadn't been banned for obscene content, no one would have ever read it. Yes, there are lots of sex scenes (omg scandalous) but all the stuff in between is, for the most part, ungodly boring. The book gets points for having some very intellectual discu...

    I bought this book in high school because it was cheap and I thought that because I was going to be a big, bad Enlglish major in college, I should probably expand my literary repertoire. I also thought it might be a little racy, given the title, which piqued my interest. Fast forward s...

    Though this maybe looked at as the book that bought sex writing to the masses, 'Lady Chatterley?s Lover' delivers more than just the oohs and aahs of an elicit love affair, it can also be seen as a parable of post-war England, and the steady rise in modernism. It even features a dog ...

    More sensual than lyrical, more original than accomplished, this is an unusual novel! I've read it quite a long time ago (at least four or five years ago), but I remember it fondly. It is not exactly a significant achievement of literature, but it feels so fresh, I can't help liking it...

    My preconception of this book was that it was just a story about a posh lady who wanted a bit of rumpy pumpy with the gamekeeper. I had never particularly felt inclined to read it, even though I have read other books by D H Lawrence and loved them, but this fitted a task for a couple o...

    Ah, D.H. Lawrence, why are you so awesome? I think Lawrence is one of those writers you either love or hate, and this is possibly even more true of Lady Chatterley's Lover, his last novel. The author's confidence speaks on every page: firstly, Lawrence has no qualms about interjecti...

    3.5 Stars Well.........I can certainly see why LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER was banned soon after publication back in 1928. So okay, you already know or anticipate that this particular classic is going to contain vulgarity and erotic situations, but for the life of me, I never thought it wo...

    Oh D.H., you eccentric one. You?ve outdone yourself. (Here?s to my fourth Lawrence read, and counting?) This is not your read if you cringe when faced with numerous sexual scenes that depict various sex positions, language that doesn?t shy away from using the four letter ...

    3.5 Stars Well.........I can certainly see why LADY CHATTERLEY'S LOVER was banned soon after publication back in 1928. So okay, you already know or anticipate that this particular classic is going to contain vulgarity and erotic situations, but for the life of me, I never thought it wo...

    *This review contains explicit content* D.H Lawrence, what have you done to me? This book was so much more than I thought it was going to be. This was an experience that I wanted to devour quickly, but that would mean not being able to soak up and bathe in Lawrence's every word, so ...

    I bought this book in high school because it was cheap and I thought that because I was going to be a big, bad Enlglish major in college, I should probably expand my literary repertoire. I also thought it might be a little racy, given the title, which piqued my interest. Fast forward s...

    Though this maybe looked at as the book that bought sex writing to the masses, 'Lady Chatterley?s Lover' delivers more than just the oohs and aahs of an elicit love affair, it can also be seen as a parable of post-war England, and the steady rise in modernism. It even features a dog ...

    Lady Chatterley's Lover, David Herbert Richards (D.H.) Lawrence Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence, first published privately in 1928 in Italy, and in 1929 in France and Australia. An unexpurgated edition was not published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. Th...

    Okay, DH, so I was sort of with you at the beginning. I was amused by or interested in watching you create a tale that seemed to be a love child of the Lost Gen and existentialist authors that instead turned out a rebelliously nostalgic Romantic, a perverted Wordsworth in a Bacchanalia...

    Book Club Read for November for Sit in Book Club. I finished this book only because it was a bookclub read and in order to discuss a book at meetings I really feel I need the full story. I thought this book was crap and I will try to explain my reasons why. The Novel was banned a...

    _Lady Chatterley's Lover_ There are no words to describe how much i love this book. I mean, i really, really, really do love this book, even if it became vulgar and indelicate at some point, even when i thought it was too much. I couldn't put it down, i had to keep reading, i had to...

    Oh D.H., you eccentric one. You?ve outdone yourself. (Here?s to my fourth Lawrence read, and counting?) This is not your read if you cringe when faced with numerous sexual scenes that depict various sex positions, language that doesn?t shy away from using the four letter ...

    Very explicit for it's time. One of Lawrence's 3 love novels, as I call them; Sons and Lovers, Women in Love, and Lady Chatterley's Lover. ...

    ?I've not taken ten minutes on Lady Chatterley's Lover, outside of looking at its opening pages. It is most damnable! It is written by a man with a diseased mind and a soul so black that he would obscure even the darkness of hell!" Utah?s Reed Smoot was speaking to the 1930 Sena...

    Lawrence has in recent times fallen out of fashion in the literary world, which is a shame because despite his reputation (often well-deserved) as a misogynist, the themes he explores in this novel go well beyond its sexual reputation. This is a novel about living versus existing. The ...

    I see a lot of my GR friends are currently reading this, so I'll be interested to see what they think of it. I understand the importance of this one--free speech, yo---but honestly, I wasn't blown away. I prefer Ginny Woolf, in fact. Part of it is that Lawrence is too damn Freudian for...
