Lady Chatterley's Lover Audiobook

Lady Chatterley's Lover

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Tedious in spots"
    Would you listen to Lady Chatterley's Lover again? Why?

    No. The narration was mediocre and the story was quite tedious at times. I'm glad I listened to it, but there definitely won't be a repeat.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was a bit halting at times, especially while reading Lady Chatterley. A bit William Shatner-esque, especially in the beginning. I got used to it as it went on, but it was hard to get past in the beginning.

    Story
    "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.
