Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D H Lawrence

Much better than its latest TV adaptation. Constance comes across as vulnerable and torn between her duty and her desires. Her character develops, heading slowly and painfully towards self-discovery. She is more believable this way.

What I have always marvelled about is how DH Lawrence gets into the head of a woman, especially when he dives into her most intimate sensations and the process of her sexual awakening. Astounding for a man to be able to do that.
