    1. Esta novela, escrita en forma de cartas, es una maravilla desde la primera hasta la última página. La forma de exponer las relaciones amorosas entre unos personajes magníficamente concebidos es de una maestría única y denota un profundo conocimiento del amor y la psicología de hombres y mujeres ante él.Su interés es demasiado conocido para insistir en la calidad de la novela.

    3. Vaya turre de libro. Menos mal que pagué lo que pagué por él porque estas cartas de nobles holgazanes del siglo XVIII narrando cómo no hacen nada de provecho en toda su vida me ha sacado de quicio.


    4. The Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil are both focused on getting their pleasure wherever they can get them.I couldn't believe this book was written in 1780s as I felt scandalized reading it now, so I can't imagine what it was like for people reading it then!

And once you have the personalities ingrained, as a reader you really get to enjoy the satire presen [...]

Based on the 1782 novel by Choderlos de Laclos and written for the stage by Christopher Hampton, LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES debuted in England in 1985 and had several different productions, with most of the original cast, before a successful run in London’s West End. The play opened in New York in 1987, where it ran 149 performances. It was subsequently adapted for the screen as the 1988 DANGEROUS LIAISONS, a critically lauded film starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich, and Michelle Pfeiffer. [...]


    6. Five stars to Pierre Choderlos de Laclos for his brilliant book, but the text in this edition is ridiculously small. As a college student in my twenties, my eyesight is by no means failing, yet I feel that the font is so unreasonably tiny that reading this book is an actual painful experience. The other typographical problem here is that each letter starts on a new page, leaving huge gaps of white space. Firstly, this is not aesthetically pleasing. In addition, there's not really a need for this [...]


    7. That is one of Oscar Wilde's many famous quotes, and if it was true, then Oscar would have been delighted to meet the main characters of LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES. I certainly was.The Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont are wicked, possibly evil, and yet (and this can be attributed to Laclos's literary genius) they will probably become the characters you end up rooting for. Laclos, during his life, continued to insist that this novel was written for instructional purposes, a sort of t [...]
