Audible Editor Reviews

D. H. Lawrence’s domestic dirge follows the mismatched marriage between a middle class woman and a workaday coal miner. Sons and Lovers has been described as one of Lawrence’s more "difficult" works, making actor Paul Slack’s Earphone Award-winning rendition all the more gratifying. In his earthen baritone, Slack exudes the doting devotion of Gertrude Copper - neurotic mother and disaffected wife - and seethes with the stifling confinement of the coal mines, as he strikes a dark and oppressive chord. Slack captures the psychological headiness that pervades this tale of oedipal family tensions, displaced passions, and working-class misery.

Publisher's Summary

Sons and Lovers, Lawrence’s third published novel, was written by the author at the height of his literary powers. The story of class differences (the relationship between a woman of middle-class family and a miner) in the tough world of coal mining, it brought a refreshing realism to literature. It remains a challenging text (and is studied widely). It is particularly effective as an audiobook in the hands of reader Paul Slack, who comes from Nottinghamshire.
