Amazon Editorial Review

One of the most extraordinary literary works of the twentieth century, Lady Chatterley's Lover was banned in England and the United States after its initial publication in 1928.
The unexpurgated edition did not appear in America until 1959, after one of the most spectacular legal battles in publishing history.
"Of the many exquisite books written by D.H.Lawrence, the book which has gained the most popularity has been Lady Chatterley's Lover. Most famous because of its obscenity trial during the 1960's, Lady Chatterley's Lover is far from a "dirty book." Rather, through his usage of local vernacular and an in depth look at the true relationship between two humans, Lawrence has successfully portrayed sex as sacred in a world where sex is viewed as nothing more than physical pleasure. This novel is a masterful example of a writer going back to everyone's common roots and emerging with a thought provoking masterpiece designed to affect a change within its readers." online-literature
“A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it.” D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover
"As far as vocabulary, Lady Chatterley's Lover is more explicit than Fifty Shades." Chiara Atik
"Fifty Shades of Grey? It wouldn't make Lady Chatterley blush" Barbara Taylor Bradford
