Now on Kindle! Refreshed! Jack Engelhard’s “Indecent Proposal” (first published 1988) remains one of the most famous novels around the world. The novel was translated into more than 22 languages and sold millions of copies from continent to continent, establishing it as an international classic.

Hollywood (in 1993) then turned Engelhard’s high-concept moral dilemma drama into a box office smash. Over $266 million worth of tickets were sold worldwide from a Paramount movie of the same name starring Robert Redford and Demi Moore.

Though Hollywood only skimmed the surface of Engelhard’s masterpiece, the theme is eternal, even biblical – temptation! The plot that has riveted the world’s readers and moviegoers? A destitute couple try their luck in an Atlantic City casino. The wife, Joan, is utterly gorgeous. She attracts the attention of an oil rich sultan who can buy anything he sets his eyes on.

Can he buy people? Can he “buy” Joan? To find out, read this Kindle edition of “Indecent Proposal” that has entertained, provoked and captivated millions to this day.

“Precise, almost clinical language...is this book fun to read? You betcha!” The New York Times

Synopsis

The struggle between Biblical brothers continues in this "Isaac vs. Ishmael" tale...but this time the prize is the American Dream. Hollywood's rendition of Jack Engelhard's novel didn't tell the real story. Never mind Nostradamus. Years before the movie version, Engelhard portrayed the passions and tensions of the current Middle East conflict in microcosm. Within Engelhard's Indecent Proposal: The Original Novel are the explosive ingredients that are as volatile as today's headlines. Is Joshua Kane - a Jewish speechwriter for modern corporate America and a gambler who's willing to make a devil's deal - the embodiment of capitalism? Will Ibrahim Hassan - the ruthless billionaire from an oil-rich royal Arab family - do whatever it takes to get what he doesn't possess? Is Joshua's Gentile beauty wife Joan - the million-dollar-prize caught between two men and two opposing cultures - the symbol of the American dream? In this foretelling and gripping novel, 'Indecent Proposal: The Original Novel' captivates the reader with its controversial theme of "What would you do for a million dollars?"

Excellent if you are a Amazon US Prime Member, however, if you're not already a member, a 'Prime' membership will set you back $79.

I got it too last time it was posted here but I didn't enjoy it. I read it to the bitter end but was rather disappointed.
I enjoyed it - and liked the fact that it wasn't exactly the same as the story used in the film. Won't say more but good book
