Publisher's Summary

A powerful and engrossing tale of extremes and extremists, D. H. Lawrence's Women in Love follows the passionate relationships of two sisters, Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen, with their respective lovers, the ominous Gerald Crich and the charismatic but fragile Rupert Birkin. Beginning in a narrow-minded English colliery town and culminating amidst the ice and snow of the Alps, the abortive alliance between the two men and the couples' affairs are played out against the derangements of industrialism and the need to find new ways of living and better ways of dying.

A masterpiece that heralded the erotic consciousness of the 20th century, Lawrence considered Women in Love his best novel, exploring through it his belief that love is "the great creative process".

What the Critics Say

"His masterpiece.... An astonishing work that moves on several levels.... Lawrence compels us to admit that we live less finely than we should, whatever we are." (The New York Review of Books)

    "Amazing narration!"

    The narrator is simply incredible! What a voice and such mastery of English and French and German and Italian. My first exposure to D H Lawrence. The story is very well told. The writing is dense; it gives you a great deal to think about.

    Story
    "Exhausting....."

    The premise of the book was good but with it's continual debating between characters it
    exhausted me. Their debates are very liberal thinking for that day but they had no more
    answers than they had questions. I waded through the book hoping for at least a good ending.
    The ending was disappointing and I felt as if I'd wasted not only a credit but a lot of time
    listening to it. The narrator's voice was so shrill with no variation between characters that
    I often couldn't listen for more than 15 minutes at a time. This is why it gets a "1" star from me.

    "Make sure you start downloading well in advance"
    What made the experience of listening to Women in Love the most enjoyable?

    I'd love to write a review of my listening experience of Women in Love, but I'm still waiting for it to arrive on my Kindle. 8 hours and counting so far.

    "wonderfully animated performance"
    What did you like most about Women in Love?

    Here a classic work that everybody believes they know is given a zesty and poignant performance that makes the complex intertwining relationships both enlivened and distinct


    What other book might you compare Women in Love to, and why?

    There is the feel of Virginia Woolf early novel Night and Day about it but really it stands in much murkier water


    Which character – as performed by Wanda McCaddon – was your favourite?

    Herminie....is both a monster and a delight.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh for such luxury...


    Any additional comments?

    One of the best audio performances in my collection

    "So Dull"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Wanda McCaddon’s performances?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story was unbelievably dull but the narrator has a nice reading style


    Any additional comments?

    I dont think I'll ever try a D H Lawrence novel again based on this book.
