    Yes no problem, it is worth checking out to see it in a different angle (we see the narration through the female characters) but it is nothing on the novel of course.

    Hi, I don't know if you can get the BBC i-player but there is a dramatisation of Bel Ami on there that you might be interested in if you have the time. Here is the link:

    Regards, John.

    Hi, I am glad you enjoyed it. I can't think of any others off hand, though perhaps Zola is the best place to look? I recently read a couple of novel's by him which were very good, but not of the style of the lazing around in Paris type, perhaps The Kill might be more in that vein http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kill-Oxford-...1707839&sr=8-3 but I have not read this so I wouldn't know. I'll keep you posted if I find any such type and let me know if you do. Regards Neely.

    Hi, so are you enjoying Bel Ami then, what do you think of it? I don't know, it was just a book that blew me away, it was one of those reads that really sort of connects, if you know what I mean? Since then I have read a few shorts and two other novels from him and they are good, but not up to that sort of level, at least for me, even if they still possess that underlying type of cynicism that all his work seems to do.

    it was a novel that I recognised elements of Dorian Gray in, which is one of my favourite novels, and an inspiration to me. I also have a silly fancy of French culture, which it also obviously ties into, but even so, I think it is an interesting read. Let me know what you think.

    Haha, way to go I like the film a lot (I am not going to discuss the book, it's simply great)

    Hi, I have a little pointless question I was wandering if your avatar is from "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". it reminds me of the scene with the bats at the beginning of the film. Am I right? I can't see due to the size of the picture. And if it isn't what exactly it is?
