For me it got off to a rather slow and tell not show start, and the characters are not too real in one sense (everyday life), but are primordially real in another, which is a perfectly acceptable thing to do in a novel that is not meant to be entertainment. DHL creates a powerful visionary, and dysvisionary, story based on an equally powerful poetics, and it is more than enough to make the novel a durable masterpiece.

Scandalous in it's day until the 1950's, this book is relatively tame by modern standards. The author's narrative is fine however the characters are one dimensional and the conclusions debatable. Not likely this book would be considered a classic except for the notoriety. Worth reading if you're interested but there are more worthy classics to try first.

Required reading for wives and servants. LCL caused a scandal when it first came out, and a bigger scandal when it was re-issued in the 1950s, and many fine people defended it against pornography charges. Of course, it is pornography, in the sense that it is "completely concerned with sex." Yes, there are characters, but they are two-dimensional. (In case you didn't get the message that Chatterley is a baddie, and worse, "not a real man", he is the lord of the manor AND a ruthless mine owner, AND a successful author, but oh! such a cold and cynical one. How unlike a working-class hero with the initials DHL.) Still, Lawrence is an artist and no fool, and he writes about sexuality in a way that was never before attempted. Some of his conclusions are iffy (be satisfied with vaginal intercourse, ladies, or you're not a real woman -- or a lesbian.)

Good, if you can handle the awkwardness of the subject matter inside.

One of the famous literature classics which was considered to have too much "sex" due to the nature of the story.

While not scandalous by current standards it is certainly a fabulous use of prose.

This story was timeless in the paralells with our current crisis of heart vs. business...
