Sintesi dell'editore

The last and most famous of D. H. Lawrence's novels, Lady Chatterley's Lover was published in 1928 and banned in England and the United States as pornographic. While sexually tame by today's standards, the book is memorable for better reasons---Lawrence's masterful and lyrical prose, and a vibrant story that takes us bodily into the world of its characters. As the novel opens, Constance Chatterley finds herself trapped in an unfulfilling marriage to a rich aristocrat whose war wounds have left him paralyzed and impotent. After a brief but unsatisfying affair with a playwright, Lady Chatterley enjoys an extremely passionate relationship with the gamekeeper on the family estate, Oliver Mellors. As Lady Chatterley falls in love and conceives a child with Mellors, she moves from the heartless, bloodless world of the intelligentsia and aristocracy into a vital and profound connection rooted in sexual fulfillment. Through this novel, Lawrence attempted to revive in the human consciousness an awareness of savage sensuality, a sensuality with the power to free men and women from the enslaving sterility of modern technology and intellectualism. Perhaps even more relevant today than when it first appeared, Lady Chatterley's Lover is a triumph of passion and an erotic celebration of life.

Perfect Perfidy.

Lady Chatterley's Lover, D. H. Lawrence, Narrated by: John Lee. My first comment is why did I wait so long to read this really revolutionary and introspective work of art? Why did I wait so long to return to D. H. Lawrence? (Maybe because I do not like his personal values.) When a younger man in New York City, I went through a period of watching D.H. Lawrence films; because of the drastic and dramatic considerations it flung out about, women, men, women and men, government and the people, and government control of its diabolical peoples. One film and your mind and soul would dwell upon the movie’s characters, plot and human interactions for days, if not weeks. Metaphysical thought. What a life sustaining set of urges, D. H. Lawrence tales provoked in me (and the rest of humanity). Well I’ve now read Lady Chatterley’s Lover, so I am on my way to curing my deficiency of not reading (or listening to) the actual novels.

The story is of an upper-class woman married to a stick in the mud straight laced fool, suffering from lower body paralysis. Our female lead, receives no emotional support from her husband, finds her way to a lover(s), and finds that sex is physical and soul nourishing. The descriptions of the sexual interactions are poignant. The tale roles forth as if it was written in the Romantic (Victorian) era. But do not dismay, as its story is all-encompassing and you will undoubtedly read addictively until the end.

Not one of the characters, is admirable, yet they (and particularly our heroine, Connie) become your alter ego and make you wonder about yourself. Do I like or unlike these people? How do I change. Can I change. Do I need to change? How about my mother, sister, lover, friend, co-worker; are they as flawed as everyone in a D. H. Lawrence novel?

Well, bottom line. Great read, and no one is as good as John Lee in reading.

Wonderful narration of a wonderful story!

Life and love are so much more than pure intellect. Love is physical and life is visceral. The themes of this novel resonate through time. We are animals after all.

A good casual listen

John Lee was not as good here as he is in the Three Musketeers, but he's still great. Clear storytelling, but all the Scottish accents sound alike and the women don't sound as compelling as in 3 Musketeers (i.e. he performs Lady Chatterly < Milady De Winter). That said, he does do a good Scottish accent, easily distinguishable from his normal English accent. But sometimes I forgot who was speaking.

Hard to sum up my opinion

Knowing this is a classic of sorts, I want to appreciate it, but I found it hard to embrace or really enjoy any of the characters. The story was interesting but not compelling. Is it just me?

It’s a classic for a reason...

This novel pushed the envelope of acceptable prose in its day and still does to an extent. Well written, for its time. I’m not a huge fan of Lawrence, but I respect his work.

The performance was great overall. The narrator has a pleasant timber to his voice for the most part.

However, this story has served as me in the capacity of a vaccine, in that I will never use the word “bowels” in my poetry or prose writing in any other context beyond a movement or if I happen to write something that requires them to fall to the ground from the eviscerated abdominal cavity of slaughtered character. This is due to both D.H. Lawrence’s overuse of the word and the narrators particularly...explosive emphasis of the word. It was rather off-putting.

Don't like Lawrence

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I don't think I like DH Lawrence because I don't think he liked women. Couldn't stand the main character, Connie. The narrator reading of her made her even worse, I think. Some male writers can capture women correctly but not Lawrence.

Narrator was not for me.

The story sounds so good, but I just couldn't finish it because the narrator kept putting me to sleep. I will have to find another audio with a different narrator in order to finish.
I gave 3 stars for the story because I feel I will really enjoy it, but I didn't feel right giving an overly start above one simply because I was unable to finish listening

leaves you hanging

i listened intentively, such old english is almost a different language. then there is a climax of feelings from every character then it ends without following through. is that what classic book is written for, so that you never stop thinking about it? grrrrrr.....

Good read.

Loved the in depth character study and analysis of human emotions and relationships. Highly recommended.
