really liked it

At some point, every Vonnegut novel that I've read feels like it was written by a very intelligent twelve-year-old. The difference between his novels that I love and the ones that I find tedious is how much that child stays buried. This is the most successful. I really like this novel, and there are loads of phrases and scenes that are permanently burned into my mind. "What are you supposed to be?" It, like all of Vonnegut, is not for everyone. But I like it.

Barbara "At some point, every Vonnegut novel that I've read feels like it was written by a very intelligent twelve-year-old."

As long as that twelve year old has had a lot of life experience, I think that this is the most accurate thing I have ever read about Vonnegut. Ever.
