it was amazing
Recommended for: Literati.

This book is a hilarious example of absurdist writing. Unlike Waiting For Godot, which can get a bit tedious, this short work was written specifically with humour in mind. Perhaps if you want to begin learning about absurdism you should start with this one and then move onto Godot, lest you immediately consider absurdism a waste of time because there is no point (that's the point!... almost).
