I don't think you screwed up your review at all--I think you captured my feeling about this book very well. Good job!

Read it several times too, read all of Vonnegut, even the posthumous ones. Love his style, love the philosophy, love the humor even in the face of situations that defy it. High school teachers use this book to lure kids into critical thinking and into the love of reading - with a pretty high success rate.

"The Dude abides"; the cinematic equivolent of "So it goes" Both true and unchanging.
Great book and fine movie treatment of the book. It is worth the effort if you can find it.

"But it doesn't try to give bullshit answers. In fact, it really doesn't try to give answers to anything."
This is one of the main reasons you've got to respect Vonnegut. There are no simple conclusions and no easy endings. In fact there are no endings in this book at all. It just seems to stretch off in all directions.
