Not For Everyone
Watt is definetely not for the average reader who is willing to sit down every night and read a pleasure book for twenty minutes. One must wonder what Beckett is saying about how we as humans think. You should only read Watt if you have a strong curiousity for what the human brain can make out of such simple and pitiful subjects such as the analysis of a spoon or the schedule of meals. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it after and would recommend it to the curious at heart.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

'Watt' is after all a worth-while novel. That is to say: it is difficult, strange, interesting and baffelling. I don't know how many people will actually 'enjoy' it, but you WILL see things around you a bit differently after reading it. I liked the book because it was in its own way a masterpiece. For me, the more different interpretations one can get out of a book, the better it is in the literary sense. Perhaps all that is not saying much, and it isn't. Read it for yourself. You'll see what i mean.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
