really liked it
Read in December, 2007

So I always demurred from being a Vonnegut fan in high school and early college, when it was so cool to be a fan, stolidly pushing throughing nineteenth century two pound books of either British or Russian origins. This is because I was an idiot. Vonnegut is no master of plot, but how important is plot where everything is fucked through and through, and nothing is working toward a meaning-

But then that is too simple, he really just tells us what we already know, in whimsical tones, in love with people, but very angry with their condition, and their actions that bring about their condition. Really, he does truly kick ass.
