really liked it
Read from April 05 to 08, 2012

This carried me along even though I was a bit put off by the lack of paragraphs in the first part. I really liked the interior dialogue and the idea of the characters coming to terms with themselves even though they are unsure who they are. I find this approach fascinating. At the same time there was enough external and in many ways humerous action to lighten the atmosphere. Good twist at the end which had me reacting a bit like watching 6th Sense for the first time. I am looking forward to reading more Beckett. Molloy, at least, was not as difficult as I was expecting.
