A brilliantly funny tale involving an unemployed writer evicted by his girlfriend who wanders about London finds himself involved in a quest for a old philosopher/friend, involved in the dogknapping of a canine film star, a labor riot at a film studio, a quest for his true love and learns that all in life is not what it seems. A five star read in my book.

I found this book enjoyable, enertaining and well-written. But it disappointed me because it was on the list of The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels and I just didn't think it was that great.

I really, really enjoyed this book. Iris Murdoch created a wonderful illusion for me. The plot was a bit light relying on several coincidences that I saw coming - however, terrifically complex and original characters, humour, and a touch of philosophy made this one of my favourite reads of 2010..
