Four characters play a game of life, concluding with the exit of one character and the immobility of the remaining three, in a study of man's relationship to his fellows
I haven't reread Samuel Beckett's famed Trilogy in its entirety since 1976, though I've certainly dipped into snippets many times over the ensuing decades. Recently I decided to have a go at the whole thing again, but I didn't want to bother with the small, clumsy Grove Paperback, or carry around three separate volumes. This Kindle edition turned out to be perfect. It's easy on the eyes, it's convenient, and it doesn't get in the way of the power of Beckett's words. How can I tell you what happens in these books, when experts argue over exactly who is who and what's what. All I know is, just as all those years before, I couldn't put it down. I went on and on until I read those famous words, "I can't go on, I'll go on." I guess we all will. Go on. Despite everything
Another fast paced electrifying thriller from Khoury. Intriguing characters and very little suspension of disbelief called for as the dark underbelly of our government is revealed in all its gory glory. Hard to discount the tangled web of our own past as Khoury spins his tale of what the government is capable of all under the auspices of protecting the people and our way of life.
Read this roller coaster ride and decide for yourself what may or may not be true. Thought provoking long after the book is finished. Khoury is one hell of a great story teller!
My original copy wore out and had pages falling out It was my college copy from 1966. I have never stopped reading Becket. Took my kids to see GODOT in Dublin three years ago. This book is for true Beckett aficionados
I'm not sure how I missed this author before but am glad I finally discovered his work. The book gets high marks for being well written and engaging, with characters you can actually get behind. Even though the author does an admirable job of 'filling in' on relevant previous events, I do feel as though I missed out by not reading the previous books in this series beforehand. I'd recommend reading earlier books to start.

On the more frivolous side, the book suffered from a fatal flaw due to the misspelling of the protagonist's name. And in the number of times I've been to the Salisbury Country Club, I still haven't seen a valet or tight security.
There have been more great writers in English from tiny Ireland than anywhere else, and the gene has transplanted well, as anyone can see from American writing. Beckett didn't intend these books as a trilogy, but someone did, against his wishes, and THE UNNAMABLE, which belongs with ULYSSES and Flann O'Brien's THIRD POLICEMAN, is trapped with two lesser books. It is unique and hilarious, looking back at the narrator's unlikely self-deceived life and the aging process with grim accuracy. The mordant Celtic sense of humor takes over, leavening this heavy loaf into a remarkable soufflé. The most serious imaginable writer makes the unnerving process of living and dying tolerable and beautiful, bringing absurdity and love to bear in a way that lets the reader step away from his human experience to see what fools we mortals be. There's nothing remotely like it.
Not as good as some of his other books, but still worth a read. Maybe it was just the kindle edition, but there were a lot of typos, which interrupted the flow of the book. This is the continuation of the story from a previous book, detailing the hunt for the main character's son's brainwashers.
This trilogy of novels is Beckett's best work, humorous and it manages to avoid the tedium and boredom which so often affects his smaller prose pieces. I am still reading them and am lauging at the most unilkely of places. If you want a slow and stylistically interesting read these novels are for you. If not forget them and stick to, well, Sci Fi of which i am a lover.
A solid book from Mr. Khoury. I enjoyed his earlier books more, perhaps with all of the writers in this space (dan brown, steve, berry, etc) I'm just losing the feel in all the noise.
I enjoyed the hours I spent lost in this book, but It doesn't really stand out any more.
