Just wondering if anyone has read this. I haven't! Is it worth picking up?


Franchescanado | 41 comments Absolutely. Best Vonnegut I've read yet.

I've never read any. Good jumping on point?


Franchescanado | 41 comments Yeah, definitely. It was his third published book and the one where he cemented his style, his great use of irony, and dark comedy balanced with insight.

I plan to write a full review, but I haven't set aside the time.


ellen (naturalog) | 2 comments Yes, you should definitely read it. It was (somehow) my first Vonnegut and I'm questioning now how it took me so long to finally pick up one of his books.


Mike (mycoats) | 35 comments I'll just agree with everyone above. As an added bonus, it's a pretty quick read too.
