Clive Thurston was a hard, ruthless Hollywood writer. But his fame and reputation rested on the work of another man - a brilliant playwright who had conveniently died. Clive thought his secret was safe - but then he met Eve. Eve was on the game. To Clive she was an enigma - bold, shy, wanton, and childlike by turn. Clive was a pushover, from the moment he saw her he was a...more

هذه الرواية تصلح أن تكون فيلما لربما صارت كذلك فعلا !
أشعر أن اسم إيفا كفيلم مر علي ّ وربما أتخيل
لا أدري عموما تحكي الرواية قصة أربعيني وصل إلى هوليود بطريقة غير نزيهة واشتهر بمحض صدفة ساعدته على ذلك , يتعرف على إيفا وهي مومس غريبة التركيبة والشخصية وتقلب هذه المرأة كيانه بالكامل وتؤثر على حياته كأنها شبكة عنكبوت سقطت بها حشرة , الرواية ترصد الكثير من العلاقات الإجتماعية والأخلاقية والعملية وتكشف عن عمق التناقضات الموجودة في شخصية الإنسان من خلال بطليها في مطاردة فريدة من نوعها

الرواية مشوقة لم...more

Δεν ξέρω αν η δημοτικότητα ενός συγγραφέα μετριέται με το πόσα βιβλία πούλησε ή με το πόσα γίναν ταινίες, η σημασία για μένα έγκειται στο να μπορεί να με εξιτάρει, να μου ξυπνάει συναισθήματα.
Με τον James Chase δεν ξέρω τι έχω πάθει, έχω μια εμμονή μαζί του. Ξέρω εκ των προτέρων ότι θα με κερδίσει με το οποιοδήποτε βιβλίο του. Πριν το διαβάσω. Ανεξαρτήτως υπόθεσης.
Ναι, είναι ο ορισμός της προκατάληψης και δεν το κρύβω:
Έχω θετική προκατάληψη για όλα τα έργα του J.C. και αρνητική καχυποψία για όλω...more

Yet another pearler from the thriller/ mystery/ murder magician, JHC, about Clive Thurston who steals the rewards of a great writer and then falls for a beautiful prostitute Eve Marlow, then gets tangled in a web where there is no escape.....

I've read this book I don't know how many times, since I purchased it (in 1975, if I'm not mistaken).
When I started reading it it was late in the night and when I finished it was early in the morning!
I've been a fun of Chase's for about 40 years. I recall most of his books that I happened to have read, but this particular one really amazed me because it gave an accurate despription of a real corrupted and rutheless woman and a man desperately in love with her...(Imagine that in my real life I am...more

The Joseph Losey film version was a mess, so I sought out the book mainly to see where that went wrong. It's a strong tale of toxic obsession, and the first person narration means that there's more of a connection with the main character, who in the movie just comes across as an annoying twerp. Eve is also a fully-rounded and interesting character in the book; in the movie she's just insane. Even so, I recommend both book and movie so you can see the ways an adaptation can go wrong.

جميلة الروايةة ومشوقة بأحداثها لدرجة اني لم ادعها في الجلسة الثانية الا بعد أن انهيتها كاملة!!

تروي حكاية كاتب مغمور وصل الى الشهرة عن طريق المصادفة وكيف تغير مجرى حياته بعد معرفته بمومس وكذلك عن طريق الصدفه!

أحزنني نهاية من أحبته :(

تستحق القراءة وبقوة..

إيفا: قصة جميلة، أعجبتني شخصية " كليف" ولو أنه بائس نوعاً ما وانتهازي، ولكنه صاحب قرار الذي لم يوصله لشئ في النهاية ( هاهاهاهاها ) ولكن هناك شيء إنساني في شخصيته وصادق، يصارح نفسه بأخطاءة ويعرف عيوبه، يتحدث عنها ، ليس بالشخصية المثالية، ولكنه قريب من القارئ
Sara Abduleelah
الرواية جيدة نوعا ما .. استمتعت بها لكنها اصابتني بانقباض
أجواءها السوداوية أثرت بي كثيرا
العلاقة بين رجل (أديب مزيف) و مومس تحطم كل حياته
ورفضها له يجعلها كالمغناطيس بالنسبة له و في نهاية الامر
يفقد حياته وكل علاقاته
و كذلك لم يكسب سوى ازدراء عاهرته
Sagnik Ghosh
A complete mindless plot,much unlike of any James Hadley Chase that i read till date!!What a waste of time(& money) on this 200+ pager which never supplied any thrill,with no twist either.And on top of the all,the story is quite immoral & idiotic.
Bala Subrahmanyam Nukala
I Was disappointed as the novel had a sluggish pace but Chase made up for this to some extent by the brilliant portrayal of the female protagonist and the pitiable Clive who struggles to come out of her spell.

هذه الرواية فقط هي من استطاعت تحليل أمور لا يمكن لأحد أن يحللها، البطل الذي احتال على نفسه، سبب انجذاب الرجال للمومسات, و نهاية الحب الصادق

رواية رائعة أنصح بها وبشدة..
