Monsieur Loisel 'Believable Character In The Story' The Necklace

Good Essays
What would you do if you lost an item that was worth a lot of value? In the story The Necklace Monsieur Loisel worked enough to get his wife an invitation to a party for the fancy which is mainly a lot of high class or important people. Monsieur’s wife Madame Loisel had always wanted to enjoy the life of the high class because she thought she deserved to live like them which led to some troubles in the story as Madame Loisel gathered enough money to buy a dress and had her friend buy her a fancy necklace. I believe that Monsieur Loisel is a believable character because he tried his best to help his wife and after she lost the expensive necklace he still stayed with her and worked for ten years to pay up for the debt that they had.
