    1. This book caused me a lot of grief, and I would like to explain why so that people who come upon it know a little bit more about it before they dedicate themselves to reading it. I am an existentialist, and this book more often than not had little to do with existentialism. I found it very frustrating that this collection seemed to have so little a grasp on what the meaning of what it was trying to convey was. So here we go--The introduction of the book is a good thirty pages and has some nice t [...]

    2. This book really helped me to form my view of life. After reading it I thought that Life made more sense. I started to believe that we just are, and that there's nothing incredible or special about our time as sentient beings. Some people might find this depressing, but when I read this book it made me feel very happy. To me, life isn't complicated; it has no meaning.

    3. i enjoyed this book understanding of existentialism is limited, to be fair. but i have read The Stranger by Albert Camus, so i already had an introduction to a more absurd existentialist story. with that as a starting place, i really enjoyed most of what was presented here. i especially enjoyed The Desire to be a Man, Saint Emmanuel The Good, Martyr, Moosebrugger, Back to the Sea, and The Bound Man. the King Lear excerpt, Socrates Wounded, and Final Sentiments of a Parricide, i could have done w [...]

    4. yummy, includes Beckett's The Expelled, Moravio's Back to the Sea, an extract from The Man Without Qualities (on Moosbruger the murderer). just come across this from 1982 notebook:in Sartre's 'The Room' - the lunatic with his buzzing statues and the people around him. He says to his wife 'We should paint this room black, there isn't enough black in here.'

    5. Well some interesting reads I guess, but the selections seemed pretty arbitrary to me. A collection of fictional takes on existentialist themes seems like a great idea, but despite the billing, I don't think this is one.
