Re-reading the book over 25 years after reading it originally, and after reading hundreds of other books I appreciate it even more. Vonnegut's comfort with voice is enviable and I can't help but wonder if he would have had more difficulty getting this book published if he submitted it today.

It is strangely prophetic, joking that Reagan would run for president. I had forgotten the fun use of three musketeers as a candy bar and as a war crew. Still poignant and funny. Happily revisited.

Quotes Jennifer Liked

Kurt Vonnegut
“When a person dies he only appears to die. He is still very much alive in the past, so it is very silly for people to cry at his funeral. All moment, past, present, future, always have existed, always will exist.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five
