"Georges Duroy is a down-and-out journalist from a humble background who engineers a stunning rise to the top of Parisian society through his relationships with influential and wealthy women. Making the most of his charm and good looks (his admirers nickname him 'Bel ami'), Duroy exploits the weaknesses of other to his own advantage--in the process betraying the woman who has most selflessly supported him"--P. [4] of cover.

Very much a plot driven novel, and rather dramatic. Very few moments of reflection or acute observation. Among the best parts is on pages 140 to143, but such insights are no more to be found. What is really astonishing is that Georges behaves exactly like a cunning social climbing woman - a type which is still celebrated in the modern women's subculture - and all the women he uses are shocked and appalled!
