    ePUB JM Coetzee ´ In the Heart of the Country ePUB Ò In the Kindle ´ heart kindle, country mobile, In the epub, Heart of download, the Heart of ebok, In the Heart of the Country EpubIt is a long time since I read any early Coetzee and I had forgotten how intense and powerful his writing can be for all the bleakness and despair of the situations he writes about This one is full of violence and decay but within a few pages it is clear that much perhaps all of the action takes place in the narrator's imagination The narrator Magda no longer a child still lives with her widowed father on a remote farm a life so dull and constrained that imagination is her only escape The book starts with her father arriving at the farm with a new wife and almost immediately Magda describes

    ePUB JM Coetzee ´ In the Heart of the Country ePUB Ò In the Kindle ´ heart kindle, country mobile, In the epub, Heart of download, the Heart of ebok, In the Heart of the Country EpubThe first person narrator of this book is Magda the daughter of an Afrikaner sheep farmer on a remote ranch in the South African veldt Magda has grown up alone with her stern patriarchal father and the servants She is a bitter old maid ignored and disregarded By page ten you figure out that Magda is kind of nuts Somewhere along the way you figure out that between one paragraph and another sometimes within the same paragraph Magda slips between fantasy and reality without warning By the end of the book she has completely lost her mind and you have to reevaluate everything you've read because it's not clear what really happened and what was Magda's imagination fabrication or delusionThe story

    ePUB JM Coetzee ´ In the Heart of the Country ePUB Ò In the Kindle ´ heart kindle, country mobile, In the epub, Heart of download, the Heart of ebok, In the Heart of the Country EpubWell that was just the feel good read of the year wasn't it?JesusI don't often read books like this and even now I can't even begin to describe what that category actually is I remember reading Thomas Hardy's Jude The Obscure and fucking hating it It was so filled with misery without the slightest attempt of hope or reason or a remote coming and going of happiness It read like an endurance test And I noticed some similarities between the general depressing tone of Jude The Obscure and In The Heart Of The Country But JM Coetzee succeeded where Hardy failed by making the protagonist strangely engaging and sympathetic I don't know how he did it becausethat bitch was straight up nuts However I have to admit that I was generally intrigued by MagdaThe narrative was very first person given that there wasn't much dialogue and I find that that style usually ends up soundi

Everything he wries is extraordinary This is no exception Brutal hits you in the guts with some of the most amazing images created in the modern novel i'd say Check out the scene when the aeroplane flies over head Until that moment I thought the book was set in the C19th And of course that was Coetzee's point If you want to know about South Africa read this book
