review The Black Prince Ò eBook or Kindle ePUB free download ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB ä Iris Murdoch free read The Black Prince „Черният принц“ е петнадесетият досега и според мнението на цялата световна литературна критика най сполучливият роман на видната англий. Dissatisfied with my review I need to say a few words It is difficult to properly explain how real the characters become What each one does is what that person has to do There are characters that will frustrate you You ask yourself How could he do that On reflection you realize this is exactly what such a person would do Each character IS who they are Bradley is not capable of confronting problems He tries but inevitably fails His pestering annoying brother in law ends up being amusing A character can make you both laugh and cry People are not simple and so it is perfectly possible to have conflicting emotions toward a person Murdoch captures this wonderfully Bradley Pearson a London tax inspector of fifty eight years of age retires to invest all his time to writing He had years ago published two novels and a collection of essays With a little peace and some time to himself he is sure he will be able to write again He rents a cottage in the countryside Before his planned escape his friend calls asking him to come over immediately It s an emergency He goes The ball starts rolling one emergency after another occurs His sister has a mental breakdown His divorced wife turns up from America Her psychoanalyst brother places demands on him too Bradley cannot say no to any of them What happens when a person is pulled in ten directions Does anything end up rightBradley s book does get written but not as planned It is his book we have in our hands It tells of that which unfolded after that initial phone call This book is a character study You come to know all those mentioned above in depth with an addition of two Bradley s friend is an author just as Bradley is but he is an author able to spit out a book every year This so called friend their friendship is fraught with tension has a wife and daughter With the wife and daughter included what is delivered is a character study of six Each of these six are amazingly well drawn The author Iris Murdoch understands people and knows how to capture in words how people behave She adds humor and suspense to the story And surprise The book begins with two forewords and ends with six postscripts These are written by characters in the story These are as much a part of the story as the central portion which they bookend The forewords make the reader curious you don t uite understand what is going on The postscripts add the element of surprise All that you have been told must be reanalyzed Whose version is right This putting together of the different parts is cleverly done Murdoch s writing her description of people landscapes and thought processes is topnotch The choice of details mentioned how ideas are expressed and the means by which information is delivered are all well done for example in the delightful description of a pair of purple boots how happy such beautiful boots make a woman feel and how the book s author inserts himself into the telling and speaks directly to readers He informs us that irrelevant people and events have been eliminated from the telling One cannot help but wonder what has been altered or removedSome people analyze this story in terms of Hamlet Others focus on the Oedipus complex For me it was enough to see this simply as a character study Themes are jealousy and friendship love and hate art and mysticism and the process of writing a storyAnthony Howell narrates the audiobook very well His narration I have given four stars His intonations fit the personality of the person speaking marvelously It is amusing to compare American and English accents You hear every word clearly and the tempo is perfectI thoroughly enjoyed this book I will continue to read all the books I can get by the authorThe Black Prince 4 starsA Fairly Honourable Defeat 4 starsThe Sandcastle TBRThe Sea The Sea TBRThe Good Apprentice TBRThe Bell TBRThe Unicorn TBRThe Time of the Angels TBRThe Flight from the Enchanter TBR

    [Read] (The Black Prince) Assuming that The Black Prince is a fair representation of Iris Murdoch's work I think its unlikely I'll read any of her booksThat's not to say she's a poor author nor is it to suggest I didn't like The Black Prince She is a fine author and I liked The Black Prince well enough But my experience with this book and what that means to my future engagement with Murdoch's novels is a bit like my experience with sw
