DH Lawrence and Anais Nin have completely different styles of writing which cannot be compared. Firstly, Nin is actually not incredibly painful to read. Though I must admit that this was not one of her better works, it still greatly overpowers many of the supposed modern classics. The woman had a gift for the tasteful yet provocative exploration of human sexuality, gender norms, and societal restraints.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Not all it's cracked up to be
Of all of the "classics" that I have read, A Spy in the House of Love was the only one that has been a true disappointment. The story wades through uninspiring page after uninspiring page. I felt nothing for the characters, and failed to see any of the sensuality that has apparently made it such a noteworthy book. For a really good classic that explores sensuality, try something by D.H. Lawrence.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
