About the Author

David Herbert Richards (DH) Lawrence (1885 - 1930) was an English novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, literary critic and painter. He reflected on the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. At the time of his death, his public reputation was that of a pornographer who had wasted his considerable talents. Others considered him one of the greatest imaginative novelist of a generation.

I never write reviews but I was so amazed by this novel that I had to. It starts of a little slow and in so doing allows you to really understand the characters... but then the events and the action pick up. Very advanced and beautifully written. Left an excellent loose end for me to wonder about long after I finished reading.

It is by 21st century stards, almost painfully slow. I recommend reading this on a wintery day when the power is out or it will seem to go on forever. It was written in a time of transition when life moved slowly, but a whole nrw age eas about to start. Just one thing -- what kept me going was to find out how it all comes out, but we are left without an outcome! It's like reading Edwin Drood! Rather unsatisfying.
