I'll have to read this one again. That Beckett is a great writer, there is no doubt. I'm way too much of a Beckett novice to attempt a thorough examination. Perhaps the best I can do here is to quote the title of a collection of his that I've just purchased: I Can't Go On, I'll Go On.
Read this one maybe after the trilogy books. It won't be quite the shock that way. Punctuation? Who needs it?! Makes a reader appreciate all those grammar school lessons about its importance much more. That's how it is.
Thank you, Samuel Beckett
I almost didn't get through it myself. "Post-modern hocus-pocus," I thought sourly, as I read the first third. But it becomes oddly compelling, even poetic. Beckett's severely minimalistic style is fascinating; there's nothing in this book except the eerily dehumanized voice of its narrator, a lonely monologue that generates real poignancy. The effect is like hearing a voice from beyond the grave, and it haunts the mind like few conventionally written novels do.
