* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Double subverted. Mervyn Griffith-Jones, the counsel for the prosecution in the book's obscenity trial, asked a question in his opening address to the jury which was widely quoted in the media at the time: "Would you approve of your young sons, young daughters -- because girls can read as well as boys -- reading this book? Is it a book you would have lying around your own house? Is it a book that you would even wish your wife or your servants to read?" The jury had a bit of a laugh at this remark, and it was regarded by some commentators as the first nail in the coffin of the prosecution, in that the jury wasn't even all-male and few of them would even have ''had'' servants, let alone presumed to dictate to their wives and/or servants what they should and shouldn't read. Having said that, ''Lady Chatterley'' does contain some of the most explicit descriptions of sex in English literature, including an episode of barely consensual male-on-female sodomy, so YMMV on how suitable it is for kids.

* HarsherInHindsight: The 1980s film version is a little harder to watch when one remembers that its stars, Sylvia Kristel (Connie) and Nicholas Clay (Oliver Mellors) both died at the no so old ages of 60 and 53, both from cancer.
