Review: Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

No offense to Samuel Beckett fans, but I did not think this play was worth the time I spent reading it.
It was simultaneously heavy-handed and sycophantic. Maybe I'm used to working a little to unpack the symbolism - I like to hunt through artfully woven passages and unearth the craft - the mastery. I don't much like it when ingenuity comes in the form of a blunt instrument such as this .... this sad, dada-esque presentation.
