Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.
Damage, Josephine Hart's debut novel, was an international bestseller, filmed with Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche, and now read by Jeremy Irons. Here is one of the most chilling explorations of physical passion and dark, obsessive love ever written.

Beautifully read by Jeremy Irons. A spell binding story which gripped me from beginning to end. I adored this book.
"Jeremy Irons makes a first class narrator"
Yes. It's so twisted, in a good way, I'm sure ill catch even more second time around
9 1/2 weeks is the only comparison I can think of, and that is meant with respect.
Absolutely everything. He has the grit, darkness and depth to carry off so many characters. I had a clear mental picture of every individual. Very spicy.
I'm not normally into romance stories but this one was so bent and twisted, it was captivating to the end. I only chose it because Irons was the narrator, but hell I'm glad I did. Smut written with class. Fantastic!
The story is superficially one of a public figure surrendering to sexual weakness and although, as the reader, one senses throughout the natural consequences of his fall, the impact is yet brutal and shocking in its unfolding. Written in short punchy chapters, the affair is well paced while remaining deliciously viseral and unapologetically raw.
"Two words: Jeremy Irons"
A powerful love story, read brilliantly by Jeremy Irons.
To reveal the most memorable moment in the book would reveal the most shocking thing in it, so I won't.
I could listen to Jeremy Irons read a telephone directory and it would give me pleasure. He doesn't just read a book, he brings it to life and he voices the characters extraordinarily well.
Already a film.
A devastating story of damage and the impact it has on family and individuals. An apparently simple tale with the resonancevand power of Greek tragedy
Excellent book, though disturbing. Jeremy Irons voice is unique and added to the books contents.
"The book is excellent the narration is excellent"
For me the narration is the best I have listened to. Jeremy Irons is fantastic. So I would put it very near the top
A compelling and interesting listen. Would definately recommend if you love an impossible love story.
The father in this family is the main character played by Irons. I suppose most would call it a mid life crisis culminating in a tragic accident that robs Irons character of all he holds dear. A compelling read.
I loved it and will revisit it in the future.
Narration, I must say is I personally loved Jeremy Irons narration and from now on will be seeking out more books narrated by him.
