I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaated this book! Forced to read it for graduate school. It's about a soldier who goes nuts on a strict diet of peas, and then murders his girlfriend. Ick. ( )

A play that is harsh, vicious, and like much of Georg Büchner's opus, ahead of its time. Not all that difficult to read and understand if one's level of German is above basic intermediate, Woyzeck tugs at all emotions and provides ample food for thought and reflection. Highly recommended, and as an adjunct, I also recommend watching the film version of Woyzeck, starring the late great Klaus Kinski. ( )

Read this during my grammar school year for German classes. Quite interesting / unexpected for me, being the green teenager that I was back then.
Liked it even better when we saw the play. That made the whole story come to life even more. ( )

Absolutely fantastic. Darkly humorous and sad. ( )
