The novel Bel Ami's main character, Georges Duroy is unbelievable. The lengths to which he goes with these upper middle class women to get to his selfish end is unbelievable.
He apparently doesn't care if they are married or if he is in a marriage.
This novel takes place in Paris during the early 1900s, in the upper-middle class environment. He on the other hand comes from a poor country background.
His womanizing rises him to the upper class society, which makes him a true scoundrel.
All in all, I enjoyed reading about his escapades & can't wait to see the film version coming out hopefully this year.
Georges Duroy will be played by Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame. His co-stars will be Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Movie release date: May 12, 2011
