    Disgrace review Ü 103 DisgraceThis short novel written in spare economical prose tells the story of a not particularly likable middle aged Capetown college instructor who falls into disgrace because of an affair with a student and is soon reduced to living with his daughter in the bush and working as a euthanizer at the local animal shelter A violent incident occurs and disgrace takes on another meaning The novel is both merciless and compassionate not an easy combination to achieve and is also incisive in its portrayal of the changing world of South Africa

    Disgrace review Ü 103 Disgrace ‘Perhaps it does us good to have a fall every now and then As long as we don’t break’ Professor David Lurie is forced to resign when his affair with a student comes to light His resignation and the humiliations he gets to swallow as a parent burn chinks in his cynical armour and self image By volunteering in a veterinary clinic his indifference to man and animal gradually gives way to empathy Disgrace deals with the human inability to communicate effectively and with the uncertain relations between black and white in post apartheid South Africa Coetzee writes soberly and compactly He aptly records the wry horror of raw physical and psychological violenceDisgrace hi

    Disgrace review Ü 103 DisgraceI finished this book a little over a week ago and for the first time I couldn’t decide how to rate a book much less write a review about it So here I am still mulling it over reading through my notes and trying to type some sort of articulate thoughts into my laptop I don’t really think I ‘liked’ Disgrace I respected the writing; it made me think a lot I had trouble finding any beauty in it; and I think that is where the problem lies with this book for me If a book touches me emotionally or if I learn something by reading it then I can truly say I loved it However the only real emotion I felt was anger if anything else I didn’t really learn much – except that unfortunately maybe I am correct in that life can be really crummy at times and people sometimes unpleasant or in some cases downright despicable How does one get into a

    Disgrace review Ü 103 DisgraceThis could have been the most uncomfortable I’ve ever felt while reading a novel The issues and themes addressed are those that are immersed in the sensitive pitch black parts of my insides And it didn’t relent; not once did it get easier It was painful to keep going yet I was gripped and couldn’t stopMining through our darker spirits is not pleasurable Looking at the world and its sickness and feeling some of its constant inherent pain is no easier But when these merge together a glorifying truth is present; one we train ourselves to

    Disgrace review Ü 103 DisgraceA savage ruthless bookAt the onset of this 1999 Booker winner I thought I was reading the story of 52 year old Capetown romantics poetry professor David Lurie who has an affair with a student over thirty years his junior I was in awe of the storytelling of how Coetzee was able to show much by saying little about the two sides of that affairLurie a man who identifies as a Byron esue lover who has been twice divorced and who enjoys the services of prostitutes isn't exactly likeable Especially when he has the opportunity to save his career by simply issuing an apology but doesn't on principle His hubris is cold and unwaveringI thought the book would revolve around his fall from grace after being forced to resign from his position I guess it is in a small part but the book really begins after taking what seems like a wild left turn into the remote countryside of South Africa where Lurie’s daughter Lucy lives It’s a whole other world a world that buzzes

    Disgrace review Ü 103 Disgraceummmno I'm afraid for me this book suffers from what I call the Booker disease I've read very few books that won the Man Booker prize that I've enjoyed SPOILERS AHOY AHOY I looked through the GoodReads comments concerning this book and saw a lot of positive feedback But not one of those comments talked about Coetzee's horrible dialogue All of his characters speak like a phlebotomy textbook and they are all just an obvious soundboard for the author's opinions What's the point of making an idea a piece of fiction if the author just uses all of the characters to spout off his views on rape class prostitution There were no distinctions in tone or vocabulary between the characters I think his points would have been better taken if he had just let the characters work out the issues themselves and not filled them with political rants I felt nothing for David or Lucy or Bev the only emotive element that haunted me was
