I loved this book A first person narrative about a young man on a picaresue uest for love and friendship with a good healthy dose of philosophy added in for good measureThe part of the story that stays with me is the story around Hugo I think I liked most the idea that a friendship might end on the basis of an assumed betrayal and that the betrayal is one of the spirit and not one that occurred at all Although that is an interesting uestion in itself does the person we feel we have betrayed have to feel betrayed to have been betrayedThis is the only of Murdoch s books I ve ever read but will read now after this
