Read from November 07 to 08, 2011

It's not nearly as cohesive as Slaughterhouse Five or Cat's Cradle. I saw half a dozen underlying messages but nothing that unified the whole other than the idea that everything is tied together in the oddest of ways. It left me in equal parts bemused and amused.

I was about to give this 3 stars when I started reading portions of it aloud to a co-worker during break. I was only going to read a paragraph or two but then the next paragraph was funny, then the next and the next and so on. I never did get a chance to go get a drink during my break. I spent it all laughing at Vonnegut. For the sake of yeast shit and sea pirates and their ability to make me laugh, I'll give it 4 stars instead.
