it was amazing
Recommended for: absolutely everyone - read it!

I can't quite believe I took so long to discover Kurt Vonnegut.

This book, which is a collection of essays on life, family, politics and the dire state of the world, is an absolute joy. Vonnegut pulls no punches about the depressing mess that we are making of the planet and global politics ('we' being humans generally, although he does places particular blame on the current American administration) and yet through it all he never loses a zest for life never fails.

I laughed out loud as I read, I stopped to scribble down fabulous quips and quotes, I went back and re-read sections. I soaked up his good-humoured crankiness and his profoundly humane view of the world. I can't recommend this little book hightly enough. Read it.
