An Unofficial Rose book. PUPPETRY Like most Murdoch books, this features someone (more than one) pulling strings in the lives of others, primarily for their twisted personal enjoyment. nothing grossly predatory. They were like servants who run ahead of their master, symbols of a presence, almost sacraments.

His son, Randall, dreams of abandoning his shapeless marriage for a perfect partner. Randall& young daughter, Miranda, is adored by her Australian cousin Penn, but has relentless attachments elsewhere. Randall& wife Ann, the central character, takes upon herself the strains and pains of all the others, while being the victim of her own private dream. The irony and pathos of this tangled situation has extended Iris Murdoch& powers to the full, but her mastery of it is complete.

Iris is my favorite, so I might be partial, but I love almost everything that she has written. All her characters are so multidimensional and vivid and the plot though always s secondary to the depth and beauty of her narration of human character is always so unobtrusively naturally weaved into the book. Love it.

This book transported me back in time, into the homes of the privileged, along with all of their hidden passions and placid exteriors. I found the writing to be gorgeously wrought, and the characters developed in such a manner as to pull you in and keep you firm, with both sympathy and ironic humor over their many lovelorn predicaments. There were surprises, as well...good, good read!

The endless circle of inner torment when love hovers hovers among a group of children and adults. Nine seem able to express themselves clearly, understand anyone else or to decide upon an action.
