Our Intrepid Heroine

I'm a multitasking, knitting, cooking, voraciously-reading library worker who wants to spread her bibliomania as far as possible.

Lady Chatterleys Lover

Lady Chatterley's Lover - D.H. Lawrence I got 200 pages into this one mainly based on Lawrence's writing. I do like the way he forms sentences.

What I did not like was the romance. It wasn't a romance. It was a Doomed Attraction between two people who didn't seem to like each other very much. Lady Chatterly was fine, then she annoyed me. It wasn't very sexy (I know, standards have changed, but really), and what little sexiness existed didn't really overpower the "I keep thinking about you even though I don't really like you but I want to spend time naked with you WOE ANGST" nonsense that seemed somehow important to the narrator.
