I love Kurt Vonnegut but there is a reason some writings remain unpublished. This volume contains several stories of fiction and one essay. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Samuel T Hoover
Really nice to read some new KV works after all these years. It reminded me of why he was such a big influence on me all those years ago, and still is, even though it's apparent... Read morePublished 7 days ago by Amazon Customer
Kurt Vonnegut, magnificent as always. I was totally unaware of this collection's existence - if not Kindle, I doubt I would find it anywhere. Read morePublished 27 days ago by book swallower

Great Vonnegut as usual. The pigeon hole descriptions Amazon uses for these reviews are pretty useless for the complex ideas Von deals with.Published 29 days ago by catchusifu

Vonnegut is one of my favorite authors; I own every book of his ever published. Wish this story had been completed. The desire to return to their former robot status reminds me of a statement from his essay: "I have to wonder if obedience isn't the basic flaw in most humankind."

This one's a miss for me. Plot by the numbers, characters that don't get the depth they did in the previous stories, and serious "of-the-time" sexism that just don't add up to something worth your time in 2012. D
