    Well, my Bulgarian edition did not have Endgame in it, just Waiting For Godot, but since it's not listed here, I'll have to make do with this one. It's a thin book that I spent too much time reading. Well worth it though, it's one of those works that really show the complexity of human logic [or lack of], the randomness and ambiguity that are in our nature, and that i love to see exposed in such a masterful way. Beckett is truly one of a kind, he's a must. I was blown away by his writing when i first encountered him through his short stories.

    Some good stuff in here, but alot of them are unbelievably dense and penetrating to read. It's almost as if some of the writers were consciously trying to make themselves sound like the worst kind of arty-farty pretentious intellectual, using all manner of unbelievably obtuse and complicated language to make his/her point. Alot of the time you sit there and dribble at what you've just read.

    Very weird and nothing much to take from it. Barely worth my time.
