This review is from: Damage (Paperback)
I've never read the book, only saw the film which I thought was terrific thanks to 2 excellent actors (Jeremy Irons & Juliette Binoche) and extraordinary directing (Louis Malle). It's an intense story of destructive sexual obsession made all the more interesting and voyeuristic as it involves a top level upper class British politician (lean and attractive) and his future daughter-in-law (ambiguous and French!). What better way to stay near him than to marry to his son? Won't divulge the end. I got the book to have a permanent reminder on my shelves so I don't know if it's better than or different to the film but certainly a gripping story.
