I have a few pages that are folded, just so I can go back and read some of the lines from the book.
Bel-Ami is a fascinating novel in that it provides an exceptionally clear view of 19th century Parisian society and is an incredibly good story.
Maupassant's characters are more real and colourful than those created by any of the other French naturalists.
Maupassant is a master at creating atmosphere and characters who are compelling. A great expose of the greed and cynicism of French society in the 1880's.Published 2 months ago by Amelia Elstub
The Bel Ami of the book is even more a villain than the protaganist in the recent English film of the same name.Published 3 months ago by Y. M. Steffen

Maupassant's best novel, though none of his full-length fictions are equal to his short stories. UNE VIE is the shadowy second, but you can easily skip the rest of his novels... Read morePublished 8 months ago by reading man
I have to admit, it was a great book but at some point I begun feeling revolted of what a mischievous coward Georges could be. I like to think people are better than that.Published 14 months ago by Iulia Duta
This book is well-written and has a great story line and cast of characters. Not sure if the movie matched its quality, but this is a must read. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Anonymous
