    Thanks for the review. I think I’ll skip this one. Unlikeable main characters is not generally something I like. :-)

  2. Coetzee won the Nobel prize (for all books he’s written) in 2003 and the Man Booker prize (best book of the year in the British Commonwealth) for Life and Times of Michael K in 1983. Pulitzer is for American writing 😉
    I’ve only read Michael K by Coetzee and it was similar: painful to read, but incredibly well done. It’s a book I’ll likewise recommend, even though I didn’t love it. I’m intrigued by your review of Foe, although I may read some other Coetzee (and Robinson Crusoe)before I approach it. Thanks for your thoughts!
