My book club selected this book. I really disliked it. I know it's about an immoral man, but I didn't see the point. The main character contradicts himself at every turn, is self centered and had no redeeming qualities that I could see. It is a blessing the book is short. It is supposed to be a classic, and I will be interested to find out what my other book club readers thought of it. In the story, this man's friends travel a great distance at his request to ease his distress at being such a jerk. I couldn't understand why they would do so. It struck me as a violent story, though not physically so, and it might be to some a way to examine man's choices, except the author gave no reasons for this man's behavior, other than that he found the sensual world after being a bookish scholar.
