    I was pleasantly surprised.

    This is a newer version, which I found to be a very easy and enjoyable read. Yes...I read it because of the upcoming movie, but this is well worth the read.

    A great classic, a fantastic read

    Having read this book during bright college days some 30 years ago for French lit (yes, back in the day when there were core requirements like history, art, & literature), I remember Bel Ami as a great book, vividly depicting Paris, circa 1880. I am now enjoying rereading. This is a first-class book, which should not be missed since the culture it presents is not a far cry from our world today. It is sensual and earthy, looking at social position, money, love, marriage, morality, courage, and athleticism. For those who are interested, the story also reflects bits of Maupassant's life. The story of Georges Duroy could be 2012 as easily as circa 1880. Cheers to Robert Pattinson for being part of this upcoming film version! I consider him to be an amazing young actor, with tremendous talent,range, & charisma, inspiring people to read & to see the films while apparently remaining humble & off the radar. Hope he keeps his head & continues to grow & flourish in his craft. Highly recommend this book.

    Good but not great

    I was so excited for this to arrive in the mail, but was kind of disappointed when it came. The cover is very nice, but the photographs inside are cheap looking and not even in color. I'm still happy I bought this, as I am an avid Robert Pattinson fan, but I wish I got a better product for my money.

    Good Representation of 19th Century France

    The main character is a complete douche, I loved hating him as he climbed the social ladder acting like a complete ladies man.

    wanted to read before the movie with Robert Pattinson comes out!

    I like Robert Pattinson so I thought I would read this before the movie comes out. The story is ok but not much action or real romance. Not much meat to the story and the end is abrupt. I think Uma and Rob will make this movie better than the book.
