Read in January, 2008

It seems like loads of people think this book is pro-socialism, but it seems to me like more of a hopeless rant against society with no attempt at positive suggestions. Don't get me wrong--his style is entertaining: sincere but at times surprisingly blunt and humorous.

However, the content falls short for me, and Vonnegut comes across as one of those people who are always whining about what he/she dislikes about society and then never does anything to fix it. I'm an amateur though, so what do I know? I don't think I'd recommend it unless you're a diehard Vonnegut fan.

The ending comes prematurely, if you get my shameless innuendo. Reminds me of Fitzgerald's line, "America is the moon that never rose."
