There is now no doubt that not only is Waiting for Godot the outstanding play of the 20th century, but it is also Samuel Beckett's masterpiece. Yet it is both a popular text to be studied at school and an enigma. The scene is a country road. There is a solitary tree. It is evening. Two tramp-like figures, Vladimir and Estragon, exchange words. Pull off boots. Munch a root vegetable. Two other curious characters enter. And a boy. Time passes. It is all strange yet familiar. Waiting for Godot casts its spell as powerfully in this audiobook recording as it does on stage.

Wide Open for Interpretation

I gave this play a very careful listen and I think the audio performances and sound effects are done very well. In the end I thought the play was silly, repetitive, and quite dismal. Beckett throws handfuls of clues at us, while providing us with nothing to solve. Even if it's fun to try to decipher what the characters and minimal objects ultimately represent, listening to the play can be a frustrating experience.
