The Philosopher's Apprentice - James Morrow


Another random choice from the library. The premise caught my eye: a conscience tutor is hired for a girl without one. The first section lived up to the promise - a distinct voice and an intriguing, satirical story. Unfortunately, once events moved beyond the initial defined world, the ideas weren't as convincing, and it ended up more as a political polemic than a satisfying novel. But marks for originality and brio.
