Very funny. Classic Vonnegut. The tale is appealing in the sense of plot, but also has a meaning. Great for a Vonnegut fan.

I'm new to the world of Vonnegut; this is the fourth book I've read in his novel panoply. Hocus-Pocus is brilliant and darkly humorous. It's the autobiography of Eugene Debs Hartke, a Vietnam vet who is embroiled in the siege of a community college at the hands of escaped convicts. This is the typical Kurt Vonnegut novel, filled with biting sarcasm and gallows humor. I highly recommend this one-- it's hard to put down.
