    Let's read in English - die Englisch-Lesechallenge 2014 Mit den Neujahrvorsätzen ist es immer so eine Sache – viele haben wir bereits wieder vergessen und der Alltag hat uns definitiv wieder eingeholt. Mit „Let’s read in English“ möchten wir das jedoch gern ändern und euch die Moeglichkeit geben, Bücher und Autoren neu zu erleben – in der englischen Originalsprache! Einige von euch rezensieren schon fleissig englische Bücher und viele Lovelybooks-Leser sind an englischen Texten interessiert, würden jedoch lieber bei einer Leserunde einsteigen. Wir haben uns euer Feedback zu Herzen genommen und unsere Lesechallenge „Let’s read in English“ ins Leben gerufen. Zusammen mit dem englischen Verlagshaus Random House Group UK mit Sitz in London werden wir eine Vielzahl von Leserunden starten und ihr seid herzlich eingeladen mitzumachen. Das Motto der Lesechallenge verstehen wir als einen Aufruf nicht nur an alle von euch, die sich mühelos in der englischen Sprache zurechtfinden, sondern an alle Lovelybooks-Leser. Egal welche Sprachkentnisse du hast, trau dich einfach – und mach mit! „Let’s read in English“ – zusammen auf Lovelybooks. Viele unsererer Leser verwenden die englische Sprache oder werden sie in Zukunft brauchen. Bücher sind ein idealer Einstieg um Sprachkentnisse zu verbessern oder die Fremdsprache auch einfach mehr zu benutzen. Die Stimme der Autoren im Original zu lesen und sie neu kennenzulernen ist natürlich ein spannenender Bonus. Für die fleissigsten Rezensenten gibt es zum Jahresende tolle Preise und jeder kann sich gern in Deutsch und/oder Englisch in den Leserunden austauschen und Rezensionen in beiden Sprachen posten. Das ist voellig euch überlassen.  Alle Grundinfos findet Ihr auf unserer Englisch-Lesechallenge-Seite! Hier könnt Ihr nun alle Fragen stellen & stets fleissig Eure neuen Rezensionen posten! Die Liste wird am Anfang jedes Monats aktualisiert!  Bitte postet für jede neue Rezension auch einen neuen Beitrag. Auf die Plätze - fertig - let's read English!!!

    It's a funny little story, how I found out about this book and chose to buy it, when I had the chance. I got a puzzle for Christmas which shows a fantastical bookshelf, and in this bookshelf were classical books (some titles variated) and one of this books was "Lady Chatterley's lover". I had never heard about the book before, but I found the title interesting and so I read it. Story: Constanze "Connie" lives a quiet life with her crippled husband Clifford at Wragby. But she becomes more and more sick of this whole broing life, and even her relationship with Clifford can't bring her joy anymore. So she starts an affair with their game-kepper Mellors, first with tongue in cheek to get pregnant and get a child (which Clifford can't give her), but then she starts falling in love with him and begins to think about leaving Clifford. However, her husband isn't willing to let her go. I needed some time to get into the story. It was boring in the beginning and I couldn't get warm with the characters. The long monologues in the whole book got uninteresting after a few sentences, because nothing reallly happened there.  I liked the historical setting, I likeed the atmosphere of Wragby like in the old Austen and Bronte books, despite the story plays in the 1920's and is focused more on the sexual relationship and not the romantical one. I'm not a huge fan of this kind of story (sexual relationship) and I didn't really liked this here, even if it was the main intention of the book (and scandalous when it came out I think). Nevertheless, the book had some good parts, some important statements (like Clifford saying that he wouldn't mind if Connie had a child of another man, because it's not blood that makes family and choses where you beling in the society) and some interesting characters. Characters: First, there's Connie. I don't like her much, she is kind of naive on the one hand, but brave on the other. I think it's polite of her to stay with Clifford that long, but then she thinks she can do all that she wants. Clifford seems embittered, you don't relly know much about how he feels inside and what he really wants.  Mellors I didn't like. He just uses Connie to get satisfaction and it's a wonder that Connie stayed with him for so lang, because he is very hostile with her. I can't see what she's got on him, but that's part of her. He's unpleasant to me. Writing: The Writing is not that complicated, it's more easy and more shallow than I thought. The long monologues were boring and during most of the conversations I couldn't really follow anymore in the end. I was inclined to stop reading, but I don't like not finishing a book so I read on. In the end it was a bit more interesting, Venice was nice reading about and all, but it was a bit disappointing how it ended. So I give 3 of 5 stars for this book. I think I wouldn't read it again. It might have been something new and exciting, a taboo theme when it was written, but now there are so many books with themes like this, it's nothing special anymore, just the fact that it was written 90 years ago.
