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. Download and start listening now!

    " Parts of it were lost on me...or maybe not...I am not sure. Completely missed the genius of the play. "

    " Such a great absurdist play! It is strange, and you won't really know what is happening. The writing can be confusing at some points too. All this should equal a low rating, yet I enjoyed every second. The characters are well thought out. If you enjoyed the book, see the movie version...it is well done. I believe you can find the full length on youtube. "

    " I think watching this play, or even just hearing it recited is far superior to reading it. I've had to read it several times for different classes in both high school and college, and honestly have hated it every time. But whenever we would read portions of it out loud, it took on a whole different sort of energy that is really fascinating and entertaining. "

    " Out of the three Beckett plays I had to read for class, this was by far the more enjoyable one. "
