Vibha I love this review! I'm not on goodreads often, but this caught my eye. A very creative perspective on the book, which I agree with.

Guillermo  Nice review, Stephanie. Vonnegut makes the art of writing seem so effortless. I revisit his books over and over again.

Kirsten Ellis I've just had "So it goes." tattooed on my wrist and you've explained beautifully my sentiments towards this phrase, this book, and how it makes us think about our lives. Wonderful review, thank you!

Seby Iuga Hmm interesting. I actually thought of the way that the tralfamadorians view things was BAD. I can't find the actual quote, but what gets me is that they think you should just always focus on the good things and completely ignore the bad. They don't even think war is bad, because eventually it ends. They even destroyed the universe, for God's sake, but they don't care. That's why they destroyed themselves; because they don't want to learn from the bad things in the past. The tralfamadorians are TOO happy, TOO optimistic. I think Vonnegut was trying to tell us to NOT have this attitude about war, to learn from the past.

Abbie Do you think Kurt Vonnegut wrote this book to persuade you to become almost "anti-war"?


message 17: by Theresa (new)
