Product description

About the Author

Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant[1] (5 August 1850 – 6 July 1893) was a popular 19th-century French writer, considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's finest exponents. A protégé of Flaubert, Maupassant's stories are characterized by their economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouement. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. He also wrote six novels.

This book is a thrilling read. Thouroughly recommended. Maupassant died from syphillis at a middle age and his mysery and thoughts on death are pasted thourought the book. It has affected me deeply and I suggest you buy this just for the experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed 29 Mar. 2010
By Lucye S. Parson - Published on Amazon.com

I want to know if this was an edited version of this book. I read it years ago and I remember it being much more explicit. This book seems to be toned down quite a bit. Is this a rewritten book? Is there an original book available.?

You will enjoy this classic story of greed and a selfish climb to the top - no matter who it hurts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bel Ami Review 26 Jun. 2010
By Master Card - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book, 'Bel Ami', came in good condition. It was a quick read and really very good. If you are looking for salacious sex, you will be disappointed, but, the innuendoes are there. Ahh, and the imagination can go wild. The main character really has only one talent, so he must rely on his ability to enchant and entice the women around him to get what he wants. Such a deceitful cad is he. The tangled web in this storyline will not let you put the book down until it is finished. Can't wait to see the movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 9 Mar. 2012
By chicago rene - Published on Amazon.com

Bought the book to read before movie's release. Boring and predictable. Perhaps a great work in 1885. Hope the movie is better!
