As far as Vonnegut goes, this is Vonnegut-lite. Which, to be fair, he says in the introduction -- these are stories he wrote when he was just starting out, so some of them you get through and kinda think, "Meh." They lack his fully developed voice in all of them with a few exceptions -- the introduction, the afterword, and the short story "2BRO2B," which is full-fledged, awesome Vonnegut.

Worth reading if you're a Vonnegut fanatic, but if you're just getting into his short fiction, start with "Welcome to the Monkey House."
