This is the second Iris Murdoch novel I've read. I find it interesting to note that in both cases, I was ready to set the book aside, and suddenly I couldn't put it down. I think that, for me, Ms. Murdoch may spend a tad too much time laying out her philosophical thesis for the narrative, but her telling of the narrative I find quite compelling. Now that I have figured this out, I may indeed read more of her novels. I'm not sure that I can whole-heartedly recommend them, however, because I believe that some readers may find her writing a tad too pedantic for their enjoyment.
