Very much a plot driven novel, and rather dramatic. Very few moments of reflection or acute observation. Among the best parts is on pages 140 to143, but such insights are no more to be found. What is really astonishing is that Georges behaves exactly like a cunning social climbing woman - a type which is still celebrated in the modern women's subculture - and all the women he uses are shocked and appalled!
