The original hardcover was not available so I had to settle on the paperback.
If you love English Literature, you must not miss this one.
The font size is smaller compared to the original but this piece of gem & it this price is a steal.
The first impression I had while reading the first chapter is that Sons and Lovers is some kind of misery-fest of Thomas Hardy proportions. The novel is centered on a seemingly dysfunctional family, the Morels. The father, Walter Morel, is a good for nothing drunkard. The mother, Gertrude, is no pushover, she is always able to defend herself and her kids against her husband’s abuses. That is nice for her, but their frequent arguments and fights do not make for a very peaceful household. I read the early part of the book with morbid fascination, guessing it is going to be just a family drama. However, as I read on beyond the first couple of chapters I began to get the impression that these characters seem very real and believable. There is more to Walter Morel than just being drunk and abusing his wife and kids. Sometime he regrets his behavior, sometime he is nice to his children. Like most human beings he has more than just one facet to his personality; he is still a lousy husband and father though.
finished Sons and Lovers almost with regret as I have to take leave of these characters I have been observing for the past couple of weeks. Forget FedEx, DHL really delivered!
This is one such book. But remember, the font size of all books by Rupa Classics is about 8-10.
Having read the introductory part I can only say that the bit that was missing in the Penguin edition could be found in this edition. However, I feel that this edition could have had a bit more in the introductory part and also notes which could have been helpful to the students.
And as for DH lowrence he's always awsom.E very of his is worth reading.
