I'd never had the priveledge of reading any of Vonnegut's work and this book blew me away! It was unlike anything I'd read previously and I absolutely loved the writing style and story! Vonnegut's wit and talent are on full display in this novel and I found myself unable to put the book down! Simply a fantastic book that I cannot recommend enough.

I dont get all the rave reviews. This book was dry as dust, made no sense and to be honest was boring as hell. That being said...i wish bn would put a STOP to these kids rolepkaying on the book review site. 98% of the reviews were kids either chatting, having nook sex, or talking about some dumb cats. Please bn, cant you fine and ban these kids from this idiotic roleplaying junk? It does not belong on a book review site.

    Eh, Vonnegut could have done better

    I feel so mortified that I did not like this book. I love Kurt Vonnegut. but this book had more potential. I wanted more backround information for his main character, if any. I mean he cant just shove me into a story, nay, a world that has no clear explanation at all. I wasnt sure if they were in the future or what the heck San Lorenzo was supposed to be. I really liked the whole Ice Nine part of the story. but besides that I was just disinterested and confused. this is nothing against Kurt Vonnegut at all I love the man he is amazing, a genius I am sure. but he just needed to give me a little more info to be able to acutally care about these characters. It could just not measure up to Slaughter House
