    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.

    Jimcin says: "Great book and good reading"
    "Avoid this Rendition of Sons and Lovers"
    Overall

    Mr. Killavey sounds as if he once had elocution lessons to suppress his New York borough accent. They didn't succeed.The novel cries out for a trained British actor familiar with British dialects and French pronunciation.This narrator lacks the competence to convey the novel with any grace, style, or authenticity. Beware that Jimcin label.
