did not like it

I found this book... painful. I think Beckett was entirely successful in his aim (as I see it) to reduce meaning to it's lowest levels (that is, to attempt to mean nothing at all and prove that we can't stop making sense), to disturb and alienate his readers, and to replicate the experience of consciousness. Unfortunately, his skill at delivering his vision made these stories unreadable for someone who loves meaning, beauty, and flow.
A work of art, to be sure! But not to my liking.
