Interesting story, yet another Beckett drawn out ordeal. 2nd story in series. Next in series is the Unnameable, previous was Molloy. These will help complete the trilogy and make more sense.
After listening to the first book in this series, I was intrigued and interested to listen to this second book. Mistake! What a tedious, droning, dull, monotone book. Since I have a long commute, I tried and tried to get into the story, but finally gave up in the third disk. Don't waste your time.
This is probably a good book if you are looking for great literature. However, it is misidentified here as science fiction. It is not science fiction, except that it may have something in common with the surreal atmosphere that I remember from reading books like Slaughterhouse 5 and 1984. And those books were not really science fiction as much as they were social commentary. You may enjoy it if you're a fan of James Joyce, but if you're looking for science fiction, look elsewhere. Since it's misindentified, I give it 2 stars.
Martha Dow Fehsenfeld was authorised to edit Beckett's correspondence in 1985.
