Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant (5 August 1850 – 6 July 1893) was a popular 19th-century French writer who’s considered one of the fathers of the modern short story and one of the form's best at that. A protégé of Flaubert, Maupassant's stories are economical and efficient, with not a single word wasted. Many of the stories are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s and several describe the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught in the conflict, emerge changed. 
Although he’s best known for his short stories, Maupassant also wrote six novels, including Bel-Ami, which chronicles journalist Georges Duroy's corrupt rise to power by manipulating a series of powerful, intelligent, and wealthy mistresses. In 2011, Bel Ami headed to the big screen, transformed into a movie starring Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman. 
Maupassant’s The Necklace tells a short tale about a woman who misplaces a necklace, and the unfortunate results that take place because of it. This edition of Guy de Maupassant’s The Necklace is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of Maupassant.

Great book, easy to read and short story !

Worst book I've ever read :(

This book was offensive to my religion especially the pictures of the author. I hated his mustache.

Oh hell no

This was a really good book but the ending was completely unexpected
