Publisher's Summary

"Women in Love" is a novel by British author D. H. Lawrence published in 1920. It follows the loves and lives of the Brangwen sisters, Gudrun and Ursula. Gudrun Brangwen, an artist, pursues a destructive relationship with Gerald Crich, an industrialist. Lawrence contrasts this pair with the love that develops between Ursula and Rupert Birkin, an alienated intellectual who articulates many opinions associated with the author.

The emotional relationships thus established are given further depth and tension by an intense psychological and physical attraction between Gerald and Rupert. The novel ranges over the whole of British society before the time of the First World War. Ursula's character draws on Lawrence's wife Frieda, and Gudrun on Katherine Mansfield, while Rupert Birkin has elements of Lawrence himself, and Gerald Crich of Mansfield's husband, John Middleton Murry.

Catherine Abbott

Catherine Abbott is an excellent narrator. The best. But it takes a little while to begin to appreciate her artistry. However, it is artistry. Lawrence would be very pleased.

Better than sleeping pills

I know it's supposed to be a classic, but a long, boring book read by a narrator with slow, mono-toned voice...if works wonders on insomnia.
