    doc À Disgrace ´ jm coetzee Disgrace   This book made me want to read Twilight Yes Twilight perfectly perfect young people falling in love and never growing old God I hope that’s what’s in store for me there I need an antidote to Disgrace   It affected me than I thought it could in ways I hadn’t imagined possible At page ten I would have readily given it five stars; the writing is superb Halfway through I’d have given it four Excellent but slightly annoying At the moment I finished it shouting “WHAT?? What the hell kind of ending is THAT???” and wondering if I was going into shock I’d have demanded stars back for ruining my life A little distance was needed before I could consider it rationally again   The word disgrace is what struck me with nearly every page Coetzee’s writing is like that Tight There’s no escaping what

    doc À Disgrace ´ jm coetzee 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

    doc À Disgrace ´ jm coetzee 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 s

    doc À Disgrace ´ jm coetzee 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 state of disgrace and is it possible to move back into a state of grace afterwards? PerhapsProfessor David Lurie is

    doc À Disgrace ´ jm coetzee 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 t

    doc À Disgrace ´ jm coetzee 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 grac

    doc À Disgrace ´ jm coetzee DisgraceIt’s a little known fact where “fact” is understood in the contemporary alternative sense that the title of this book was originally an acronym that Coetzee used as a guide for writing itDishonor Inducing Sex Glaring Racial Antipathy Corroding EmotionsDavid Lurie a white South African professor in his fifties had taught communications and poetry in Cape Town An ill advised affair with a student spoiled all that David sought refuge with his daughter Lucy who experienced some conflicts of her own living in the country’s interior With its setting in post apartheid South Africa a race angle was virtually inevitable I have to say the emotions packed a real punch including some you don’t see coming As far as I know Disney had no role in producing the movie version of this raw and hard edged book Despite the lack of uplift I did appreciate the writing and the plausibility of the angst Evidently the Boo
