    3. To begin with, let me make something clear J.M 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 wor [...]

    4. I read Disgrace by Nobel Laureate J M Coetzee with a few friends in the group reading for pleasure A winner of the Man Booker Prize, Disgrace also fulfills the Nobel Laureate square on my classics bingo card All of Coetzee s novels have received multiple awards or prizes, and Disgrace is the first of his novels that I have read Although short in length, this introduction reveals to me the brilliance of Coetzee s writing David Lurie is a fifty two year old professor of communications at Cape Town [...]

    5. This 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 stop.Mining 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 glorifyin [...]

    6. This 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 portraya [...]

    7. It 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 it Dishonor 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 ow [...]

    8. ummm 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 [...]

    9. I 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 [...]

    10. It s admirable, what you do, what she does, but to me animal welfare people are a bit like Christians of a certain kind Everyone is so cheerful and well intentioned that after a while you itch to go off and do some raping and pillaging Or to kick a cat.At the beginning, it appears pretty easy To hate David Lurie To take Coetzee s writing for granted To assume that everything would fall in its right or may be wrong place To anticipate a letdown feeling by just another Booker prize novel To learn [...]

    11. David Lurie, 52, professor, seduces a student Not rape, we are told, not quite that, but undesired nevertheless The girl s name, Melanie, means black The power dynamic between them, the disparity of authority, is foregrounded.Later, Lurie s daughter is raped by intruders, and violently She is white her assailants three of them are black We are in South Africa David is forced out of his position at the university for his undesired liaison An investigating committee asks him to issue a statement o [...]

    12. A savage, ruthless book.At 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 affair.Lurie, a man who identifies as a Byron esque lover, who has been twice divorced and who enjoys the services of prostitutes, isn t exactly likeable Espe [...]

    13. There should be one of those button options on GR that states this review has been hidden due to hormonal, maybe not so justified, incoherent rants click here to viewBecause that s what you re about to get David Lurie is a playah In the full urban dictionary sense of the word A male who is skilled at manipulating playing others, and especially at seducing women by pretending to care about them, when in reality they are only interested in sex.A certain class of low rent, slack jawed fuckups has d [...]

    14. Brace yourself to meet Professor David Lurie, banished son of the Romantic Poets, he roves and loves, spreading his unfertile seed unapologetically.Byronic in his burning desire to possess female bodies, he doesn t crave for their souls, it is the release of the flesh, the ecstasy of the unloved that he is after.Fifty two year old David seeks only his own pleasure and succumbs to his instincts as the true womanizer he is, or as he calls himself a lover of women, paying homage to Wordsworth in nu [...]

    15. Transcendent and Transformative On trial for his way of life For unnatural acts for broadcasting old seed, tired seed, seed that does not quicken, contra naturam If the old men hog the young women, what will be the future of the species Half of literature is about it young women struggling to escape from under the weight of old men, for the sake of the species I am wonderstruck by this 220 page novel, the 1999 Booker Prize winner It s my first read of Coetzee In sharp, precise prose, this transc [...]

    16. Durante aquella poca de mi febril admiraci n por Fi dor Dostoievski, unos a os atr s, admiraci n que cuya llama no se apaga, tuve la oportunidad de leer el libro El maestro de Petersburgo , de J.M Coetzee y ver en la tapa que hab a sido premiado con el premio Nobel en 2003 auguraba una interesante lectura Me sorprendi en el acto y gratamente la manera en que se mete en la piel del genial escritor ruso, en una novela atrapante donde Dostoievski, luego de a os de exilio vuelve su querido San Peter [...]

    17. When I closed on the last page of this book, I just sat in stunned silence and stared into space I felt a little sick and lost, over affected by the sad truths it disclosed I did not cry, but there were tears behind my eyes pricking through much of this read, and they were not tears for these characters as much as for humanity at large.David Lurie is not a likeable person He is short sighted and self centered and amazingly insensitive So, how is it that I ended this book wishing him well Wishing [...]

    18. LE RAGIONI DELL ALTRO, A MAD HEART Qual la vera vergogna, chi la commette, chi dovrebbe provarla Devono vergognarsi anche le vittime La ragione non sta mai da una parte sola John Malkovic il professore David Lurie, e Jessica Haines sua figlia Lucy nel film di Steve Jacobs del 2008.La storia di David Lurie, professore di Poesia Romantica in una qualche universit di Cape Town, con la sua studentessa uno stupro Il prof si avvantaggiato della sua posizione e del suo carisma, ma ha davvero commesso v [...]

    19. I literally just finished this book a few minutes ago, so I have not by any means worked though all of my reactions to it yet It is written in a very spare, emotionally distanced style, even though it deals with very emotional topics It is a page turner, an absorbing, fast read that keeps you anxious to find out what happens next but that seems almost incidental, besides the point I thoroughly disliked the main character, David Lurie he is unbelievably arrogant and chauvinistic but that seemed l [...]

    21. This is all very quixotic, Professor Lurie, but can you afford it We ve started going over the terms of tragedy in one of my classes, working through the definition before setting off on our reading of Othello One of these delineations uttered by my professor went along the lines of the difference between unfortunate accident and tragedy , the death of the main character s lover and said main character s succumbing to a fatal flaw, respectively I say, if that is indeed the linguistic case, one m [...]

    22. Man, living in South Africa really sounds like it sucks Nabokov insisted that one cannot read a book one can only reread it, and while I suspect he was right I almost never read books than once There are just too many unread books out there for me to stop and go back in most cases, unless I m made to do so for a class, which this time I was, just two years after first reading Disgrace.There are a couple obvious reasons why it s good to reread books, and one has much to do with the reader than [...]

    23. This was my first Coetzee, and so my expectations were modest, as they usually are with a new author Literature being so diverse, it usually takes a little time to connect with an author s particular style and voice, and there is something of an act of persuasion as the author slowly reveals themselves and coaxes you around to his or her point of view Not so with Disgrace, which immediately gripped me in its raw power and honest depiction of the decline and fall of David Lurie In his portrayal o [...]

    24. Was it serious I don t know It certainly had serious consequences J.M Coetzee, Disgrace When all else fails, philosophize J.M Coetzee, DisgraceWow, folded into 220 pages is about everything you ve ever wanted or never wanted to read about race, sex, power, family shame, suffering, humiliation, jus animalium, love and death Really I think Coetzee could fit raw emotion and tender sorrow into one rangy clause than most writers could pack into a whole novel There is part of me that thinks I need to [...]

    25. This was an amazing book about a main character with an ambiguous moral compass It was infuriating, it was interesting, it was just such a ride Major trigger warning for rape and pedophilia, since pretty much the entire book revolves around that But I just loved this It made me think so much and we had amazing discussions in class Highly recommend

    26. This story gets directly to the point Coetzee is quick to take us from point A to point B with as little embellishment as possible The short and compulsively readable Disgrace revolves around a professor who has fallen from his status at a South African university, then the tables are turned and he finds himself falling even further down the chute, becoming the victim of sudden violence Misogyny is thence explored, as is morbidity It s The Human Stain meets Saturday The former is a classic, but [...]

    27. Morality vs MortalityThis is not a standard review of Disgrace I have chosen to tackle a perspective that I think is very apparent in the novel, but is mostly overlooked by many of its readers Sure, the common way of looking at it is already enough to judge its genius, but I think this is another feasible one As they say Words are form, man gives the meaning There have been few moments of genuine awe in my reading experiences and I can without any trace of doubt say that reading my first Coetzee [...]

    28. BkC 18 Coetzee, J.M DISGRACE Wonderful writing, is there a story here I think I must have been in a foul humor when I wrote that There is indeed a story here.About disgrace, about the taking of grace from another being, about the horrors of which grace, in its religious meaning, is capable of holding back.David Lurie, fifty two, isn t a bad man He isn t a good man, either He is a human male possessed of a libido and enough facility of mind and tongue to service that libido s demands This means h [...]

    29. I would like very much to be able to coherently refute this novel After finishing it I felt as though I had maybe been taken in because while reading it I accepted its premise s , but afterwards I wondered if what had seemed true really held up to the glare of daylight There was a review by James Wood that I liked a lot, and here is a quote from it But people like novels that, however intelligently, tell them what to think, that table ideas and issues novels that are discussable Above all, and m [...]
