    eBook J.M. Coetzee ô Disgrace Epub õ ô disgrace epub, Disgrace PDF/EPUBTo begin with let me make something clear JM Coetzee's Disgrace left me intellectually fulfilled and severely shocked Fulfilled at the simplicity and beauty of its narrative which resulted in a powerful drama; shocked at the impact it had on my innermost self This is not a book for the faint hearted If you lack faith in your fortitude do not even start read something easier But that would be a pity for you would be deprived of an experience that will only enrich your understanding of the world If you stay Coetzee will grant you a masterpiece And there have been some moments of genuine awe in my reading e

    eBook J.M. Coetzee ô Disgrace Epub õ ô disgrace epub, Disgrace PDF/EPUB ‘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 hits like a sledgehammer but results in a catharsis that one doesn't forget lightly A staggering bookWillie Bester Transition 1994 Misschien is het goed voor ons om af en toe te vallen Zo lang we maar niet breken Professor David Lurie ziet zich ge

    eBook J.M. Coetzee ô Disgrace Epub õ ô disgrace epub, Disgrace PDF/EPUBI 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 a man I disliked r

    eBook J.M. Coetzee ô Disgrace Epub õ ô disgrace epub, Disgrace PDF/EPUBThis 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 ea

    eBook J.M. Coetzee ô Disgrace Epub õ ô disgrace epub, Disgrace PDF/EPUBA 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 s
