Item description for Dangerous Liasons (Classic Fiction) by Choderlos de Laclos, Michael Sheen, Sarah Woodward, Polly Hayes & Estelle Kohler...
"Dangerous Liaisons" is a gripping, unforgettable tale of passion, treachery and cruelty whose leading protagonists remain in the memory long after the story has been told. In their secret letters to each other, the unscrupulous yet seductive Valmont, his clever, manipulative accomplice, the Marquise de Merteuil and their various innocent victims, involve us in the machinations of a sadistic plot which ends in tragedy and misery for all. An enduring success since its first publication in 1782, and more recently through adaptations for the stage and film, the epistolary nature of the original make it equally powerful on audiobook.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dangerous Liasons (Classic Fiction)?
Superb - absolutely so. Apr 5, 2000
I loved the movie Dangerous Liasons with Glenn Close and John Malkovich and decided to try this audio version of the book. I can't say it was better than the movie, but the audio is superb. It is on 3 CDs and so is longer than the movie and supplies more detail. Since it is in letter form, its style more closely follows the book. The readers show incredible and intense emotion in their voices - you can almost see them in your mind. It made my commuting a joy for several days - I was almost sorry when I got to the office or arrived back home and had to quit listening. Such devious-ness! Who is the most wicked? Enjoy.
Info on the tapes Mar 10, 1999
I must admit that I have not listened to the tapes. However, the new movie "Crule Intentions" is based on this book. I have seen the movie and if the two are anything alike, I would highly recommend ordering them.
