Great Classic
July 21st, 2015
I liked Vonneguts way of telling a story. His charaters are interesting and eclectic. It was a great read, one that I was sorry when the book came to an end. So it goes.

A Masterpiece
November 11th, 2014
Clever, dramatic, strange, different. A sense of humor that cuts like a knife. Vonnegut took "non linear narrative" to a more literal level.

interesting but skip able

It was a little hard to follow and really had no story to it at all. constant time changes and setting changes made the telling of his story hard to read. I expected more.

Classic, but too satirical
May 20th, 2013
The book is very good, and sheds light on a real event. However, the main character is very lax about all the events, and while this was the point, I found the satire made the event even more depressing.
