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 middle-class woman and a miner) in the tough world of coal mining brought a refreshing realism to literature. It remains a challenging text and is studied widely. It is particularly effective on audiobook in the hands of Nottinghamshire reader Paul Slack.

There are a few glitches with this recording- a handful of passages are repeated. However, I enjoy Lawrence and I thought the narrator did a wonderful job- accents were very well done and characters were easy to distinguish.
I heard the BBC radio dramatisation of "Sons and Lovers' many years ago. Paul Slack's reading made it all come back.
I'm disappointed that Audible doesn't have more work by him.
