    Sons and Lovers was the first of Lawrence's major works, and is still considered to be one of his best. The 1913 novel, partly autobiographical and set in the coalmining village of Bestwood, is notable for being the first English novel to be genuinely working-class in origin and focus.

    "Poor Reader"
    Overall

    Don't botther with this version. The reader has all the emotional sensibility of someone reading the phone book

    Let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave. These ominous words, slashed from the pages of a book of Psalms, are the last threat that the darling of London society, Sir Edward Grey, receives from his killer. Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward collapses and dies at his London home, in the presence of his wife, Julia, and a roomful of dinner guests.

    Parusski says: "Happily surprised"
    "Too Much Distraction"
    Overall

    This is a well written book. The author hides the true murderer well. However, about 20 per through the book you want her to get on with the plot rather than the setting.

    Boston P.I. Sunny Randall goes on the road to protect a best selling author - and uncovers a world of dark secrets - in this new novel by Grand Master (Mystery Writers of America) Robert B. Parker.

    Eileen says: "Big irritations"
    "Don't Bother"
    Overall

    I like the fact that Parker has established a new character, but this book is a waste. Even for Parker this plot makes no sense. The last two hours cause you to loose any attachment with any character.
