    It's a growing experience, Liam, the Magistrate doesn't become immediately conscious of the value of the Others. There's a slow progression, and I certainly think he loved her. Or maybe I just don't want to paint a novel I loved in such bleak colors like you're doing.

    But Coetzee IS bleak!!! If his characters suddenly began to exhibit the full spectrum of human emotion, I'd be seriously concerned for the author.

    But being bleak, he can't however have a grasp of the full spectrum of human emotions? That's a very limited reading of literature.

    There you two go again.

    There's something about Coetzee that I instinctively can't stand. He does not come over as serene, but cold. He never mentions his obvious part-Afrikaner background (his surname is a dead giveaway). And as soon as the going got tough in that pretty chaotic country South Africa, he disappeared off to Australia.
