Eye of the Beholder is a cult classic that inspired both French and English .

Eye of the Beholder is a cult classic that inspired both French and English film adaptations. Joanne Eris has a bad habit of marrying men that wind up dead. An unnamed private detective, simply known as "The Eye" is hired to investigate the death of her husband. Marc Behm was born in 1925 in Trenton, New Jersey and served with the US army in Europe during WWII. After playing a variety of small parts in American television, he eventually made a name for himself as a screenwriter. Eye of the Beholder was his second novel.

Spying on people is routine business for private investigators, but a seductive, enigmatic woman will turn one P.I.'s life upside down when he becomes obsessed with her. Reissue. Movie tie-in.
  • Nice edition. I like this as a love story, and I like something about the characters, which don't strike me as all that flat. I think this is pulp fiction with the soul of literature, and that's probably why it seems so disappointing. The general plot is not exactly revolutionary, the writing is somewhat clunky and seems to be trying too hard to fit itself in the genre when it should be blossoming into something unique. It's like a blurry photograph that *could* be some rare cryptozoological wonder... if only it had been clarified. As it is, I think the reader is left squinting their eyes and wishing it were true.

  • I read this book because, despite the 1-star rating I gave the film, I suspected that there was some at-least-decent material in the underflying source (the novel). My expectations were vastly superceded; it is clear that the movie was unintelligible because (a) too much was cut out and (b) there was an obvious effort to over-modernize it (the book was written almost 20 years ago).
    "The Eye," a private investigator becomes obsessed with a woman after he witnesses her kill a man who he has been surveilling. Unlike the film (which takes place over a relatively short period of time), in the book he trails her for over a decade. Also, unlike the film, one begins to really "understand" both characters' motivations. The result is a fast-paced, tight psychological page-turner.

  • I liked the fact that it was different but just not believable, so it didn’t pass the smell test.

  • This novel is a hynotic journey that questions the definitions of love and compassion and presents a wasteland America seen through the eyes of one man who has stumbled on a woman who quickly becomes the center of his universe. All other questions become secondary when she walks into the lense of his camera. A tragic love story or a disturbing novel of obsession? The line between the two is cleverly blurred in this breathtaking novel.

  • The books is amazing in every way. I wanted to read it after watching the movie, and certainly didn't regret it.

    Although, not quite. The author paints a picture of a private investigator chasing after a woman he was paid and instructed to find. He does his job, successfully, but then gets mildly infatuated with her. Then simply obsessed. And he also has a daughter who helps him at it; what is unnatural about this daughter one will have to read to find out.

    What I disliked about this book was its coldness, its cruelty. The book throws you into endless feelings of discomfort and fear; until the very end. Though the main character does, in a sense, get what he wanted, the book felt very unemotional to me. I think the author did an outstanding job at providing this feeling, but in the end I wanted nothing more than to read or watch something with a PG rating. Maybe it's just me. Find out for yourself, you certainly have nothing to lose; I'm still fine.

  • Eye of the Beholder justly deserves its accolades of being "the detective story to end all detective stories". Its strange, sad story is very intriguing if somewhat contrived. Unfortunately Marc Behm's prose, and to a lesser extent his characterizations, is a bit thin. Also the dialogue is, at times, almost laugh-at-loud silly. Fortunately it's the story itself which keeps the reader's eyes glued the page.
    As for the story, we have a private detective who becomes utterly obsessed with a homicidial young woman. He follows her from one murder to the next (..this sort book contains literally hundreds of killings), and by stealth helps cover up her crimes. They both eventually find themselves travelling across the USA multiple times over some 30 years. But his love is unspoken, and their relationship is certainly spooky. And Marc Behm concludes the book, and the relationship, in a most satisfactory way.
    Bottom line: a very strange story of obsession, murder, and lonely people. Recommended.

  • Good golly, with the film being as bad as it was, was I insane to even attempt reading this book? Yeah, probably.
    At least in the book, the characters' motivations are explained in much more detail and are more understandable. Also, the Eye is twenty years older than Joanna (who's bisexual in the book and has meaningful relationships with women) and follows her for about a decade instead of six months. Things that were difficult to understand in the movie, like why he stops her wedding to the wine mogul, are fully explained in the book.
    Unfortunately, being able to understand the characters doesn't make them any more likeable. It's a tawdry tale with an excessive amount of gratuitous profanity. And, like the movie, the ending really STINKS. Not recommended.

  • Eye of the Beholder is a very suspenseful and thrilling book. It will keep your full attention from the beginning to the end. It barely made me use my imagination to put a face on every person in the book, that is how well Behm writes. Not knowing what's going to happen from one minute to the next keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what the author has in store for you next. Horror has always been my favorite kind of book but this suspense thriller is a welcome change. Behm's style of writing was very interesting to me because he didn't drag the story out,he filled this book with many different interesting events. In other words this book was written about the characters over a long period of time, it wasn't just one event throughout the whole book. It took you along with these characters for many years of their lives and gradually came to a climatic end. This was a great book full of suspense and thrills and I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
