    Highly recommend

    I love Kurt Vonnegut. Bluebeard doesn't have quite as much humor as some of his others, but enough to keep it interesting. It is a great story and very poignant.

    brilliant as always

    this is an excellent example of the wit and wisdom of Kurt Vonnegut. more pronounced is a theme of sadness and human futility that can be overcome only if we want to. the message here may be that often we dont want to.

    Fun & Easy Read

    I think it's pretty hard to go wrong when choosing a Vonnegut novel. They are all really easy to read, fast paced and fun. The story of Bluebeard it very enjoyable. It was never boring. It is a little different than Vonnegut's 'classic' books, but is just as good!

    !

    I loved this, but if you haven't read a lot of Vonnegut, I might start with more classic books. This is definitely a departure and feels like the most "accessible" to people who aren't looking for Cat's Cradle and Hocus Pocus.

    One of Vonnegut's Best!

    Kurt Vonnegut's smirking, sour-mouthed satire is at his best in this soulful tale of a struggling bohemian trying to find his way in the modern world. Sometimes hillarious, sometimes heart rending, this tale tells the story of all our lives - in part or in whole - with classic Vonnegut illumination. Anyone who loves anything about Vonnegut will treasure this story!
