By Kurt Vonnegut
6 hours and 4 minutes listening time
I finished this book about two weeks ago, but I had to wait to post about it for two reasons; One, this book needs some time. You have to sleep for at least 48 hours and then think about it for at least 16. Second, I don't think this book can be reviewed sober. Not saying that I am drunk right now, but I did have two glasses of wine with dinner, so at least my judgement is skewed a little.
This is what I have gotten from Kurt while reading his books; he is on crack, or was on crack, or should have been on crack. If you go into any of this novels knowing this, then it will be easier on you in the long run. I enjoyed this book much more than Breakfast of Champions, however it will not be a book I read again. I was a little confused during most of it because I never knew where the main character was....was he in war? was he on some alien planet....I couldn't figure it out, and right when I thought I knew, he left there and went somewhere else.
I thought it pretty neat that he brought in one of his other characters from Breakfast of Champions. However it was one of the strangest characters I have ever read about.
I would say if you get a chance read this book. It's interesting enough to read, plus it isn't that long. I have also decided that I want to rename my back yard Tralfamadore, and I would like to live in my backyard (with full access to my house) and if people want to observe me doing so, I welcome it...
