Found this book hard to follow. Might have just been my mood. I would read and reread sections and they always were better the second time, and yet...meh. ( )

If you're going to read Murphy, have Google ready. Your dictionary won't be nearly good enough. Of the approximately 916,000 words I had to look up, my dictionary had maybe four of them.

There's a lot to like here. The titular character's journey is a really funny one, and I enjoyed watching him work to reach a place deep enough inside his own head where he could finally be left alone. We know just enough about each of Murphy's associates to see what they think of Murphy, why they think what they think, and just how wrong they are, which leads to much of the book's humor in rapid-fire dialogue that seems both off-the-cuff and well rehearsed. The conversations between Murphy's "friends" Neary, Wylie, and Miss Counihan showcase Beckett's gift with discourse that would serve him so well in the coming years as a playwright.

The problem is that Murphy the book is much harder to understand than Murphy the man. There is something to be said for a book expanding a reader's vocabulary, I get that. But there are books with big words, and then there is Murphy. While some of Beckett's diction is based on medical jargon that is naturally lacking in synonyms (e.g. ectropion, ausculation) and may be unavoidable, I just couldn't help but hit a tipping point where it was no longer possible for me to fully engage with the text. I guess this is an anti-modernist take or whatever, but detachment in my eyes is always a negative when it comes to novels.

Beckett's greatness is unquestionable, and there's no good reason to completely pass this up, but when I decide what work of his to read next, I'll be looking for something more stripped down (a la Waiting for Godot) than what this was. With Ulysses looming on the horizon for me, this probably doesn't bode well. ( )
