Took me awhile to get into this because of the weird page setting. As the book progresses one sees what Coetzee was trying to do and it adds to the mystery of it all. What grabbed my attention with this book was the essay question: how should a citizen of a modern democracy react to their state's involvement in an immoral war on terror, a war that involves the use of torture? Definitely a good talking point. As for the characters, I took Anya with a pinch of salt. Her transition and change in opinion of Senor C was to be expected. All in all, it was a good, solid read, once I got over the page setting.
