Malone Dies is the first person monologue of Malone, an old man lying in bed and waiting to die. The tone is fiercely ironic, highly quotable, and because of its extravagance, also very comic. It catches the reality of old age in a way that is grimly convincing, cruel as humor so often is, and memorable because of Beckett's way with words. A master dramatist, Beckett's novels can be even more effective when heard, and especially when read by such a Beckett specialist as Sean Barrett.

    " Ridiculously difficult and a bit of a drag sometimes, but fascinating. Beckett's got style in this trilogy. "

    " I can't say I really enjoyed reading this, mostly because a lot of it went totally over my head. However, I still really liked some parts and I'm sure it will be more enjoyable on a second reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 12/28/2013

    " Like Molloy, this is sometimes hard going. But it has a lot of moments of grim hilarity, and the absolute greatest, most vulgar and anti-romantic "love letter" that I've ever read "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matthew | 7/17/2011

    " 144 page inner monologue by a perverted, dying old man = 144 page waste of time. "

    " "but i have no reason to be gladdened by the sun and i take good care not to be. the aegean, thirsting for heat and light, him i killed, he killed himself, early on, in me." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K.c. | 3/30/2011

    " Pretty stunnning. Unlike anything I've ever read before. Lude and crude, nonsense, no plot. Lots of laughs. If you like modernism, go for it. "

    " Only Samuel Beckett can spend so much time talking about poop, and still make it so beautifully worth reading.

    "It was Midnight. The Rain was pounding against the windows. It was not midnight. It was not raining."

    The most chilling ending to a novel ever. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 11/10/2010

    " I confess that I am rating this before completion. This is cheating I know, but I promise to come back to this review upon completion...I think I will complete it? I just had to rant about how modernity is such a sad existence. The end. "
