it was ok
Read from August 01 to 18, 2012

I want to like this. I mean, it is Vonnegut after all. Everything of his I've read up to this point was engaging, thought-provoking, and interesting, but here I felt like Timequake was more so scattershot, unfocused, and only intermittently able to keep my attention.

There are, of course, some glorious Vonnegut literary nuggets here and there, but they can't save this from being one of his weakest efforts (if not the weakest). I feel like I'm betraying a great by not rating this higher, but I honestly feel it can be skipped, even by Vonnegut fans.
