    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in love with his nurse Nothing earthshattering.And then the author showed up Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can rea This is my first Coetzee, and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 ...

    What I love about Coetzee is that he isn t afraid of fitting a tire over the goat s torso As I m reading the reviews of this book from my other Goodreads buddies, many seem disturbed by the character Elizabeth Costello, who truly breaks with logic and knows impossible details of characters In other words she is a meta character who speechifies some of the arguments and questions I m sure Coetzee had in writing this book, and in the hands of a post modernist dilettante, this character would hav What I love about Coetzee is that he isn t afraid of fitting a tire...
