Women in Love
Women in Love is a novel by British author D. H. Lawrence published in 1920. It is a sequel to his earlier novel The Rainbow (1915), and follows the continuing 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 unadmitted homoerotic attraction between Gerald and Rupert. The novel ranges over the whole of British society at the time of the First World War and eventually ends high up in the snows of the Swiss Alps. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Great narrator, but an overly long story filed with self-absorbed characters whose tiniest emotions are over blown to great portions. Lawrence writes darkly, but richly. I had to skip whole paragraphs to stay interested.

This reading of Women in Love is close to perfection. Thanks for making the experience so pleasant and unforgetable.

A breathtaking recording
"Women in Love", D. H. Lawrence's sequel to "The Rainbow", continues the tumultuous stories of sisters Ursula and Gudrun Brangwen. The sisters are definitively modern women, bolder and more intense in nature than their Victorian predecessors. Both plunge headlong into passionate affairs with two very different men, and the two bright young couples explore their relationships with each other and the world around them. Theirs are the voices of a new age as they question the nature of love, politics, and the people of England. Controversial in its day for its honest, vivid depictions of sexuality and other daring topics, this novel is a fascinating look at modern life and love breaking free of a more conservative past. Many thanks to Mrs Golding for her outstanding reading of this long novel. A truly remarkable performance well worth listening to.
A truly outstanding reading
