Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"...a brilliant entertainment, a social comedy of and for the highly literate. Beneath that surface an astringent post-Christian Platonism has evolved into a negative theology that pragmatically offers only the dialectical alternations of either total libertinism or total puritanism in the moral life. The esthetic puzzle is whether the comic story and the spiritual kernel can be held together by Miss Murdoch's archaic stance as an authorial will. And yet no other contemporary British novelist seems to me of her eminence..."

Harold Bloom, New York Times Book Review, 01/12/1986

Review:

"[The book] is, in a way, a moral soap opera: an enclosed, related group of people with the spotlight on them, an outer world that mirrors their private concerns, frequent changes of scene and actors, all conducive to reading on in order to find out what happens next...'The Good Apprentice'...is singularly optimistic about a human inclination to go on struggling not just for meaning but for, well, goodness."

Gillian Wilce, New Statesman, 09/27/1985
