This is my first encounter with Sartre's work, and the man's plays are a lot more accessible than the pronunciation of his name.

"No Exit," the play from which the famous line "Hell is--other people" hails, is a really enjoyable read, though I liked the line "...I'm a crowd all by myself" much better.

A great account of hell: seeing ourselves filtered through other people.

Wasn't as impressed with "The Respectful Prostitute," whose characters and plot were not as greatly developed, in my opinion.

"Hell is other people." Sums it up pretty perfectly!
