    Godot is full of meaning and meaningless at the same time.

    Waiting for Godot is humorous and ironic. It's characters' senility gives the book a similar feel to that of old Charlie Chaplain movies. The characters repetitive conversations add to that feel but also allow the reader to, if he/she wants to, pull out several meanings from the book. The whole book parallels the human experience of waiting for our own Godot, whether it be God or Wealth or family, whatever gives our lives meaning. With each meaning the detail of the book presents different symbols, unique to whatever it is the reader is comparing it to.

    Reading the bookvin class

    In my drama class we are reading this play, me and my four friemds at my table seem to be the only four-plus the teacher-that enjoy the play. Everyone else doesnt undersyand that the carrot talk is exactly what you and your bestfriemd talk about.. nothing. Its to pass the time. Now we are not finished with the book but im excited to see what happens next so imma buy it so i can re read it and get a better feel for it.

    Waiting For Godot

    this is one of the most interesting plays I've read...so unique...so intriguing. A lot of people do become frustrated with this book [literally NOTHING haPPeNs] but it takes quite a philosophical mind to understand the inner workings of an existentialist. I myself is still tyring to grasp its meaning...I suggest Waiting for Godot if you like to contemplate and have quite a patience.

    A True Classic

    Beckett's tragicomedy is an innovation in modern drama and a timeless classic of theater.
