36. In ongenade

In ongenade [English title: Disgrace]
J.M. Coetzee
ISBN: 9026316089
My rating:

I certainly liked Coetzee's writing style, for example his sarcasm and irony, and his playing with language, formulating sentences in an original way. I also appreciated the insights he sort of gives into literature and poetry, speaking through the main character teaching at the university. However, I didn't as much feel at ease with the story itself. There is certainly some message that Coetzee is telling you as the reader, but it often frustrates me when I don't completely get that.
