Read it in 2004 and 2011 and the 2nd time wasn't any better. It was just too slow.
One of my favorite lines from this book is the narrator’s assertion that, “All creatures come into the world bringing with them the memory of justice.” It’s a beautiful sentiment and if everybody bought it, I think it’d be a different world. In any case, justice, or lack thereof, is certainly a major theme of this book, especially as it pertains to the treatment of the “others” (called barbarians in this book). Without giving away the plot, I’ll just say that I was struck by how pertinent I found this book (published in 1980 in South Africa) to be in 2007 USA. Reading it I was reminded of the recent Botero exhibit of the Abu Ghraib prisoners in Berkeley and all the post 9/11 hype used to justify the Iraqi war. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because I felt Coetzee’s treatment of the girl was a bit too superficial from the psychological perspective. However, to be clear, this is still an intense book overall. The Amazon reviewer compared Coetzee to Kafka, though he reminds me more of Camus. Either way, it’s not exactly light reading, for better or worse!
