    Hysterical, But I Don't Get It

    I finished Under the Net this evening. I don't know if, after all the descriptions of alcohol abuse, this novel was worth my time or temptations to drink. No alcoholic should read this book because of possible triggers. I heard in an ethics lecture that Murdoch was a Christian, but there is little evidence that she believed in divine intervention or even the providential order of things, the baptism scene in the Thames notwithstanding. All three of her novels that I've read are a confusion of random, erratic plot twists with Christian allegory. I don't get it; how are these two elements supposed to be coordinated? In defense of the novel, there were scenes and dialogue that had me in stitches at times, especially the dognapping episode. All in all, I think three stars are enough.
