it was ok

This book was so horrible. I know that it might be classic literature but I had to struggle to get through it. The whole book takes place in the same room in the same house over the time of one evening. It's two couples who fight all the time and they have an imaginary son and all they do is fight. The movie was worse! So much fighting

Isaac Timm I agree, they call this play a drama, the only drama is a farce, an imaginary dead son, this play is just a verbal bar fight, sans the bar and the interesting characters you'd meet there.

Kelby It's actually an allegory for America (hence George and Martha. I presume you don't read many plays so I forgive you.

message 3: by Jay (new) - added it

Jay Well, I thought it was great but it's not something you read 'for fun'. It requires an active mind and an effort from the reader. That kind of literature is what I look for, but for others like yourself it really isn't.
