Of the three, only the last matters. Love is a meaningless word, and sex an ephemeral pleasure, but seduction is an amusing game in which victory means power and the ability to humiliate one’s enemies and revel with one’s friends. So it is for the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, two supremely bored aristocrats during the final years before the French Revolution. Together they concoct a wildly wicked wager: If Valmont can successfully seduce the virtuous wife of a government official, Madame de Tourvel, then Madame Merteuil will sleep with him again.

Riveting and appalling in its' details of meticulous planning for the destruction of others, by two people intent on gratifying their own perverse egos. Written in the form of letters between the various characters, a tangled web of deceit and betrayal is revealed as La Marquise de Merteuil and Le Vicomte de Valmont plan revenge on those who have dared to slight them. The letters also provide an intimate view into the manners and mores of French upper society in the late 1700's.

If you were to read a book that reflects the worst of our humanity, this is the one. It shows that the characters with vicious intentions have always been there in our society, and that we might want to revise our own debauchery to avoid following the same steps.

This is, and isn't, the NY Public Library Collector's Edition: the Dowson translation w helpful notes, yes, but a different introduction and (what will disappoint some readers) none of scholarly and none of the soft-porn-ish illustrations that made the hardcover edition a treat.

I read this book after seeing the movie. I loved the movie although I had to watch it a couple of times to get into it. The movie follows the book pretty closely, so you might want to stop there. The book is old and composed of a series of letters, so it is a more difficult read than many books, although worth the effort. I have a translation by PW Stone published in 1961, that I like better, if you can find it.

good read

I wonder if this would be better in the original French? I found it a bit dated and tedious and couldn't be bothered to finish it as I already knew the story.

Laclos's parlor room epistolary featuring the answer to aristocratic french ennui lacked enough of the voyeur's rush for my keyhole fantasies to be sated and when it came to a moral resolution, things were a bit tidy and quick for my tastes. So many of Laclos's contemporaries like Voltaire, de Sade, Rousseau, and company are far worthier of your attention. This is one case where the movie is better than the book.
It was an interesting read and is a dastardly, terrible tale, it was an advanced novel for its time and worth the read
