The simplest way to sum up Kurt Vonnegut's last novel, "Timequake," is to say that it is an autobiography, hilarious, touching, sometimes depressing, and always great, with a bit of random prose thrown in revolving around Kilgore Trout, Vonnegut's fictional altar-ego. If you know Vonnegut, you will know and love this book, but if you don't, it will seem completely random, nonsensical, and not much of a novel. Having previously read about half of Vonnegut's books, I thoroughly enjoyed "Timequake" and could easily see myself reading it again. I would never recommend this to anyone who doesn't all ready know and love Kurt Vonnegut, though. But if you DO love Vonnegut and haven't read "Timequake," you should.
