review 1: This odd story, The Road crosses with Lost, is how I would describe it, had me intently thinking all along. I don't know if I would call it my favorite Coeztee book having read five now, but it was the most gripping, for me. I was intrigued to the point of being mesmerized. If I'...

review 1: This book might be a five star, but it leaves so many questions that I haven't yet decided for sure! In many ways this is a brilliant book. There are philosophical and religious themes one could teach a whole class on. The world this book takes place in is simultaneously fascinat...

review 1: What an odd book. The author writes it as though he is someone else writing his biography after his death. Parts of it were very strange and parts of it were hard to understand. As someone who was living in South Africa in the late 70's I really enjoyed the African references an...
