    A Masterpiece

    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

    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.

    Good classic tale.

    Great read, even with all the switching of locale, at it seems with each new chapter. Very good story. Well written.

    Unexpected

    Not at all what I expected it to be actually having no precursor despite the book's relative popularity. A bit of a quirky read, just how I like it.
