I found Vonnegut's writing style to be very intriguing in Deadeye Dick. The dark theme of life having no purpose is balanced with humor, satire, and imagination, making the book both dark and light. A novel with an idea of life having no purpose would usually be followed by despair and depression, but Vonnegut's humorous approach brings a smile to the reader. This writing style of Vonnegut's is what makes the book hard to put down. It is not apparent who Vonnegut is intending to reach, but maybe he is not trying to target a specific group of people, and rather entertain those whose hands the book falls upon. The most interesting point in the book is also the most important, when the main character Rudy Waltz randomly fires one of his father's guns over the town and kills someone. The title is a perfect fit, because "Deadeye Dick" is the nickname Rudy received after the incident, and the events that follow throughout the novel are centered on it. If you are a fan of Vonnegut's writing, then this is a must read.
