A brilliant book by Kurt Vonnegut. It is definitely my favorite by him.

It is a very easy read and also very interesiting so that one wants to continue reading. I finished this book in two reading sessions, even though it usually takes me longer.

It is a look at our society written in his usualy humorous and satirical style. It talks about religion and science and how either can be a danger to society because of human ignorance. It talks about science showing how it can harm us if done by somebody who doesn't care, if it gets into hands of ignorant people or if there is a competition for the product.

It also describes the religion of Bokononists. In it we can see the issues of many world religions.

This is just a brief description, but I don't want to give much away.

If anyone would like to read a book by Kurt Vonnegut, I would recommend to start with this one.
