I really liked the narrat

...

ion in this book. I'm kind of tired of first-person, and the third-person limited omniscience of the narrator supplemented to the story. Only being privy to protagonist David's thoughts make the thoughts and motives of the secondary characters a mystery. The narrator is also very self-aware at how David isn't a good person, he isn't supposed to be. There were actually a lot of plot points that I had some speculations about, some questions and conflicts I thought would be fleshed out or resolved, but they never were. While this isn't a bad thing I lowkey resented Coetzee from taking away the super justifying feeling of being right. Also without giving any spoilers at all this book also ended at a different point than I expected it to end. I was 2 pages away thinking "shit how is this ending so soon?" But overall I was satisfied after thinking about it and the conclusion was apt.
