    Í srlltd Femme FataleI really didn’t take a lot out of this one Well other than the fact that I won’t be reading anything by this author in the future The stories are okay I mean I didn’t think there was a lot to them They just felt rather flat I couldn’t buy into the emotion that the author was trying to convey; it all felt too uick and too unrealistic It was obsessive to the point of being to excessive I just didn’t like it I have nothing positive to say about it The prose was awful When the author was describing the scenes it felt like he was listing a load of random things It didn’t uite work; it felt choppy and disjointed This story was very risky when it was originally written; i

    Í srlltd Femme Fatale One can love a friend as much as a wife Passion has its own laws Oh what it must have been like to be a French femme of the 19th century That is the world Guy de Maupassant is inviting us to in these four sparkling and dazzling four tales of Parisian high society and rural life I feel ambivalent about this Little Black Classic because I enjoyed everything about it except for what actually happened in the stories and one might argue that the plot is the most important thing about a short story The tales certainly feel very French the characters are sophisticated and have that certain elegance and awareness to them that come with money and a reputation which I don't find relatable but in this literary form intriguing The women he writes about have a suave attitude to them they are in touch with their sexuality and the effect they have on men You imagine them painting their nails and lips red and smoking cigarettes over a glass of wine He had fallen under the omn

    Í srlltd Femme FataleGuy de Maupassant 19th century French short story writer was considered the father of the modern short story with his macabre tales full of black comedyUnfortunately they did not interest me in the slightest They were uite amusing in places and I enjoyed the black comedy but altogether they were patronising and unremarkable It was interesting to see that people have not changed in over one hundred years however Still drunk bawdy relentless and pretty
