No. 22 - Lady Chatterley's Lover

by D. H. Lawrence

Started: March 28
Finished: April 11

Notes: One of the many from my list of books I've been meaning to read. Apparently this one was so titillating that the complete version was banned in the U.S. until a judge's decision in the 1950s or thereabouts. This is the full version.

Mini review: Okay, it's easy to see why this book has stirred up so much controversy over the years. Yep, there are quite intense sex scenes, several of them. I wouldn't classify them as pornography or obscene, but there is some strong language here. This book isn't for the prudent. However, all that being said, there is some good stuff here. The basic plot didn't do much for me, but there's a lot here concerning mankind's growing industrialization that I found of interest.
