Hart's prose is sublime - magisterial, yet at the same time, economical. The pace and plot grip like a morbid fever. And the first chapter is up there with that of Ian McEwan's Enduring Love as a contender for best-ever opener.
In short, read Damage and it's goosebumps all the way down.
I loved this book. It is a fairly short story and it is a dark tale of obsessional love and it's repercussions. The writing style is beautiful and it reads very easily. It left
me with feeling I had read the inner thoughts of someone and it was very moving. Highly recommended.
Hart's prose is absolutely beautiful.
What is so very frightening about Damage is that not only does the tragedy seem to be encroaching from the start, but also it presents to us a situation we ourselves would be utterly powerless to save ourselves from if fate conspired in this way. Fall in love with a damaged survivor and you might as well commit suicide now is the point Hart is making. Its a dangerous book, and quite possibly deceitful, but it can create the same obsession in those spellbound by it that Stephen suffers for Anna.
I have never read a more powerful, beautiful and unsettling book. It made my palms sweat and my chest pound.
This is a rather dark and brooding novel, but it is also quite haunting and remains in the memory quite some time after the book is finished.
