This book is considered a classic withing the lesbian/wlw community for being the first Western lesbian novel that does not overly sexualize the lead characters and has a relatively happy ending. As an LGBT person, I felt obligated to read it, but I wasn't too keen on that, hence checking out an audio copy. In the audio format I enjoyed the book while also being able to draw and workout, which enhanced my enjoyment of this novel. While I found the status of Carol's life at the end of the book to feel unsatisfying, and Therese's to be ambiguous, I suppose that their relationship does end on a positive note. I find it rather sad that many of the characters' worries and trials mirror my own as an LGBT person, despite the book first being published in 1952. I would have found this book to be more meaningful to my development as an LGBT person if I were a younger reader (and I am only 20 at the time of reading, mind you) but I will most certainly recommend this book to any young questioning/LGBT person for encouragement and support through literature.
