Publisher's Summary

When Constance Reid's new husband, Sir Clifford Chatterley, returns from war paralyzed and in a wheelchair, she sees her future wither. As their marriage grows loveless, she mourns the desires fated to go unfulfilled.

Soon the lovers find themselves entangled in scandal, and their taboo affair becomes as pernicious as it is passionate.

Couldn’t finish

This book is supposed to be a classic controversial book from the 70s. The story seems intriguing as the characters question boundaries and limitations of their marriage and what it means to be committed and happy.

The narrator, however, was horrible. She does not take breaths or pauses, and it seems as though the story is just one very long run on sentence. Where is the inflection on the characters and their voice and the concern and the disdain? With a different narrator, this would be a great book.

Terrible narrator

This narrator does not bring the story to life. I exchanged for another version. Next time I’ll check reviews first!

The reader

It’s a beautiful book but the reader was a little harsh and abruptly with her reading. The flow was not continually and threw me off. She wasn’t a good fit for a wonderful classic as this book.

Amazing Novel, Well Read

I am a fan of Heather Wilds which is why I chose this edition. Although I can understand why some didn't care for her reading, I felt her style was perfectly suited the tone of the novel. I love her voice and I appreciate the way she can do believable male voices without changing to a weird deep voice the way some women readers do.

Previously my only exposure to the book was back in high school, while it was still banned. Someone had obtained a copy and was passing it around with the sexy parts marked. Too bad the book was mainly valued for those passages in those days (at least by teenagers) because Lawrence had a splendid style and his depiction of the attitudes of men and women toward sex is brilliant. We could have benefited from his understanding as we ventured into adult life.

Narration in the style of a shopping list

I loved the story, but the narration style just didn’t light my fire, sorry Heather.
