This is my first Coetzee and for the first sixty pages it seemed to be an interesting but not arresting book about an older man coping with losing a leg and his mobility and freedom and the after effects of such a loss including falling in love with his nurse Nothing earthshatteringAnd then the author showed up Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

Meisterhaft und überraschend erzählt der Nobelpreisträger J MCoetzee in seinem ersten Roman seit dem Welterfolg »Schande« von. I can't deny that JM Coetzee is indeed a talented writer Clear concise exacting prose And duh he did win the Nobel Prize after all But I don't think this one is the one read Disgrace probably is What starts out as a uite conventional story soon morphs into something bordering on ludicrous Is it magical realism A darkly comedic satire on death vs consciousness Or just a novelist indulging in not having to adhere to any chosen path or structure And not bothering to answer some key uestions about certain characters As a mediation on aging intimacy and mortality it excels As a novel it fails to deliver a coherent narrative And soon becomes tedious If it weren't so short and a fast read I probably would've tossed it aside

J.M. Coetzee Ú 0 Summary

Slow ManEt Seinen Reflexionen stellt sie Lebenspraxis entgegen seiner Radikalität liebevollen Spott Doch um Rettung ist es ihm nicht zu tu. This is a complicated book to write about in a few words On one level it is a story of a sad isolated man who suffers the loss of a leg in an accident and who becomes hopelessly and inappropriately infatuated with the woman taking care of him On another level it is the a mediation about the craft of fiction writing and the mysterious relationship between the writer Coetzee aka Elizabeth Costello and the character heshe is creating At the half way point of the story the protagonist says something that is a so disastrous that the author must come on stage to try to rescue the story The two levels are intricately woven together in the second half of the book which ends with an unexpected act of simple kindness that deeply touches the central character I came away with a real sense of compassion for the shut down humanity of the slow man because of course some part of me is a slow man too Coetzee deserves his Nobel
