really liked it

I have read about this book before and now when i've read it I really understand why it's a classic. Great story and great writing.

It's about a french party of high society people traveling to safer grounds during a war against the Prussia. And one of the passangers is a local prostitute with a very heavy figure, called Bouel de suif. (fettpärlan)

On the way they are being stoped by a Prussian regement and held in an inn without any obvious reason. The Officer are giving them a demand for their release that include a service he wants from the prostitute..

I really enjoyed this Novel, from beginning to end. And it has trigged my lure to read more from De Maupassant!
