I have to say this was interesting. It was my first read by Vonnegut and I do understand now why my son loves him. It's a short story about population control. For every child born that is going to live, a volunteer must die. Imagine what goes through a father's head when his wife is about to have triplets! I enjoyed it and it really makes me stop and think. I didn't think I would enjoy it and I was pleasantly surprised. I think I will give something else by this author a try.

It's a short journey through the mind of three men and one government some may see as idealized. 10-15 minutes takes you through the thoughts of a new father, an artist, a doctor and the government they reside in. If you're not thinking by the end of this then you're either a) dead or b) too narrow minded to see the possibilities beyond your own beliefs.

Typical Kurt Vonnegut short story. If you read all of his books you will enjoy reading this. Thought provocative.

Thought provoking to say the least. Very short, but I enjoyed the bio of Kurt's life at the end... explained a lot.

For once, she had her back to the camp. She wept bitterly, for all the cats of her clan abandoned her.

Looked at him with sincere, lavender eyes. "Thank you. It just means so much." She kindly licked him behind the ears.

I love this story, and the question of mortality that Kurt so wondrously created

DO NOT BUY THIS E-BOOK The story is great, definitely check it out, but do not pay even $.95, it's only eight pages long! The rest is padded out with Vonnegut's bio and stuff. It's available on the internet for free in numerous locations, it will take you five minutes to read, tops. It's a very neat, thought-provoking little piece, I'm glad I read it and you should too, but I feel scammed.
