Publisher's Summary

A powerful and engrossing tale of extremes and extremists, D. H. Lawrence's Women in Love follows the passionate relationships of two sisters, Gudrun and Ursula Brangwen, with their respective lovers, the ominous Gerald Crich and the charismatic but fragile Rupert Birkin. Beginning in a narrow-minded English colliery town and culminating amidst the ice and snow of the Alps, the abortive alliance between the two men and the couples' affairs are played out against the derangements of industrialism and the need to find new ways of living and better ways of dying.
A masterpiece that heralded the erotic consciousness of the 20th century, Lawrence considered Women in Love his best novel, exploring through it his belief that love is "the great creative process".

Amazing narration!

The narrator is simply incredible! What a voice and such mastery of English and French and German and Italian. My first exposure to D H Lawrence. The story is very well told. The writing is dense; it gives you a great deal to think about.

wonderfully animated performance

What did you like most about Women in Love?

Here a classic work that everybody believes they know is given a zesty and poignant performance that makes the complex intertwining relationships both enlivened and distinct

What other book might you compare Women in Love to, and why?

There is the feel of Virginia Woolf early novel Night and Day about it but really it stands in much murkier water

Which character – as performed by Wanda McCaddon – was your favourite? both a monster and a delight.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh for such luxury...

Any additional comments?

One of the best audio performances in my collection
