    Interesting writing style... His writing was cynical of life, beauty, and aging. I need to read more of his short stories to get a better grasp of his approach. Overall, I found the writing interesting even when I disagreed with his worldview or approach to some other aforementioned subjects...

    What a dry sly unsparing fabulous voice. Like bumping into a stranger at a noisy party who's got the lowdown on everyone in the room, and gives it to you over a shared Chartreuse . . . He had an eye for the darkness, too, and an artist's taste for truth. Don't read them all at once, let them swirl and settle. What a dry sly unsparing fabulous voice.

    Maupassant has to be the father of boring, depressing short stories that go nowhere and have no point. Every one I've read so far leaves me in despair and makes me wonder "Why did I just read that?" Maupassant has to be the father of boring, depressing short stories that go nowhere and have no point.

    Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) in translation comes across as a competent short story writer and a keen observer of the French society of his time, with a wide variety of subject matter: horror stories, love stories and what could be termed social naturalism or stories on social mores. I would recommend reading some of his better known stories before attempting to read through his entire production in the genre.

    I came across "The Jewelry" in my literature class. I guess it's not one of Maupassant's more famous short stories, but for me reading this piece of his writing with a well-crafted narrative is entertaining.

    One of a few early 18th century writers I really admire and try to emulate in my writing. Together with Poe introduced me to how to build suspense in a story as well as plot twists and memorable endings. I have the book however, which I annotated, not the Kindle version
