it was amazing

Look at the Birdie is a collection of short stories. The stories are excellent, but like the last book of Vonnegut's short stories I read (Armageddon in Retrospect - review forthcoming, I promise), I was left wanting more. As I said, the stories are excellent, but I wouldn't take Look at the Birdie over Hocus Pocus. It's probably not fair to compare a collection of short stories to a novel, but this is a two-for review, so I have to do a bit of comparison.

Basically, if you haven't read any Vonnegut and had to choose one over the other, ask yourself which you would rather – easing your way into Vonnegut (Look at the Birdie) or jumping in with both feet (Hocus Pocus). But don't think about that for too long. I can pretty much guarantee that you will enjoy both.
