Les Liaisons Dangereuses

Les Liaisons Dangereuses - Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, Douglas Parmée Life is too short to spend it reading a book:

a) whose story I already know from the movie;

b) whose execution doesn't captivate me. It is an epistolary novel, so it is telly in its essence.

Such a pity, because all the elegant banter between Merteuil and the Vicomte was really witty and funny.
