Other reviewers have amply covered the ground about how laugh out loud funny this novel is So I d like to just uote some bits that I found wise knowing even profoundIt s easier to sell junk when you re known than works of genius when you re unknownEvents stream past us like these crowds and the face of each is seen only for a minute What is urgent is not urgent for ever but only ephemerally All work and all love the search for wealth and fame the search for truth like itself are made up of moments which pass and become nothing Yet through this shaft of nothings we drive onward with that miraculous vitality that creates our precarious habitations in the past and the future So we live a spirit that broods and hovers over the continual death of time the lost meaning the unrecaptured moment the unremembered face until the final chop that ends all our moments and plunges that spirit back into the void from which it cameStarting a novel is opening a door on a misty landscape you can still see very little but you can smell the earth and feel the wind blowingLike a fish which swims calmly in deep water I felt all about me the secure supporting pressure of my own life Ragged inglorious and apparently purposeless but my ownIt s always a strange experience to read one s own writings again after an interval They so rarely fail to impressAnd this was her FIRST novel What a treasure we have in the fiction of Iris Murdoch

FREE DOWNLOAD Under The Net: Vintage Classics Murdoch Series READ ½ Under The Net: Vintage Classics Murdoch Series Philosopher Hugo loves Sadie Sadie is a glossy and dazzling film starlet Of course Sadie loves Jake Then theres Marvellous Mister Mars the famous hound who might or might not be Jakes ticket up and out of this mess WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY CHARLOTTE MENDELS. An amusing and interesting novel of ldeas but not a work that I connected with on an emotional level The book came out in 1954 and is set in London and Paris It does not seem dated which is rather odd given how difficult life was in Britain in that period It is narrated by Jake Donaghue an impecunious translator of French novels into English and follows his wanderings through London and eventually to Paris in search of various people he knows There are long philosophical discussions few of which lead anywhere in particuar perhaps this is post was existentialism in actionAs to the story there are very funny bits and terrific set pieces but I kept wishing that Jake would settle down and follow one goal or person rather than constantly shifting targets Also at the end of the novel all the relationships that Jake thinks he understands turn out to be something else all together That changeability makes several of the characters difficult to care about very muchI did end up being rather fond of Jake but the dog is still the most sympathetic character in the novelOne s response to this book I imagine is very much a matter of taste There is no uestion that it is beautifully written and that it is at times very funny But it is also degage and on some level for me at least inconseuential All very clever like beautifully decorated desserts but not necessarily satisfying
