I read this years ago, but a couple months back, saw it on my shelf and decided to flip through it. A couple hours and a hundred pages later, I was caught up again in the scandal of it all. These characters play for keeps and are terribly seductive. It makes for a great, entertaining book.
Oddly enough (given how different the books are), I’ve come away from Laclos’s novel thinking of Matthew Lewis’s The Monk. Weird.
