these novella's are fantastic and i recommend them to anyone looking for a light read or thought provoking literature. they operate on many levels and are definite page turners, as well as classics. Lawrence wrote and originally published them in the order of the Fox, The Captains Doll, the Ladybird, and i like it that this publication has been kept to that order.
