From page 1 to 293 I found absolutely torturous to read. It was of no interest to me. I found the story incoherent and not very appealing. The only reason I kept on reading was to see if at some point the story would get better. After page 294 you get just enough to stay invested in the story. The characters spent most of there time arguing with each other. They are annoying, and at times very selfish. They are the most unhappy characters I have ever read about. SAD. Gudrun, I just didn't get her. Birkin irritates me throughout the entire story...but I felt real emotion for him in the conclusion of the story. In-addition I love the brotherhood/ friendship between him and Gerald. Ursula was very demanding which had me screaming (AS IF SHE COULD HEAR ME) hahaha!!!!! girl you can fight for love...but you can't force love....or beg to be love. I think the title of this book should be WOMEN DEMANDING LOVE.

Women in Love is the story of the Brangwen sisters who are very different in their approaches to life and relationships. The novel centers on Ursula's relationship with Birkin and Gudrun's relationship with Gerald Crich, son of the owner of the town's coal mine.

This is my first foray into Lawrence's work, and it will not be my last! In spite of the angst and over-analytical tendencies, it is the most lush, sumptuous writing I've ever had the pleasure to read. I loved it!
