A review by renatasnacks
Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee


I'm beginning to really enjoy Coetzee's spare, elegant style. I didn't enjoy this as much as I did Elizabeth Costello, but I don't think this book was necessarily less good than Elizabeth Costello. Disgrace is more masculine, and even as I understand the novel to be an exploration of gender roles and masculinity, I still found the protagonist to be off-putting. Intentionally so, and well done, but I didn't LIKE the book as much. You know? Okay good.
