The Black Prince
The Black Prince
by Iris Murdoch
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars The Black Prince, 18 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Black Prince (Paperback)
The Black Prince focuses on the character of Bradley Pearson, who has just retired from the Inland Revenue working as a tax man. Pearson considers himself a writer, after having published just a couple of books. Murdoch's characterisation is excellent as usual, and one finds oneself amused by Pearson's ideas of himself. There are parts of the novel where Pearson considers philosophy and art, which while intersting can dominate the story. I was intrigued from the beginning as Pearson is looking back on a recent period of time, and was slightly surprised by the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Regeneration trilogy, 18 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Eye in the Door (Paperback)
This is the second instalment in the Regeneration trilogy, and continues examining the effects of the first world war. The book mixes fact with fiction extremely well with well rounded characters and ideas.
