Love almost everything Vonnegut writes and this was no exception. Many posthumous releases from Vonnegut aren't great; this is an exception. Definitely worth owning.Published 1 day ago by Jason M McCrea
not very exciting or breath catching. Just ok to read before falling asleep.Published 8 days ago by edith colaneri
One of America's great writer. If you haven't read him, start with Catch 22 and don't stop!Published 3 months ago by Jorge G. Hugony
The writing is classic Vonnegut - meandering yet with purpose. I thoroughly enjoyed each short story, as well as the essay. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Melissa S
I'm a huge Vonnegut fan but this must be some of his earliest writings. Stories are quirky but dated and not up to his usual standard--in my opinion. Read morePublished 4 months ago by ST
There is a good reason that they were not published before the author's death: he probably did not think that they were up to his standards.Published 5 months ago by phineone
