Been a big fan of KV, Jr for many years, so this was a re-read.
All the stories are good, but the first 3 are just fantastic. Harrison Bergeron is one of the greatest short stories of all time, and just classic Vonnegut. If you haven't read his work, and want to try it out, this is a good start.

Look at life a little differently after this read. Takes ordinary day by day things and puts a twist that makes you think!

I read this book when I was in my late teens. Vonnegut had the talent to take an ordinary situation and see the humor in it. Worth reading!!

Kurt Vonnegut was also a master of the short story format, and these are some of his best. Excellent for a quick irony fix.

Each story is a nugget. Entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time. Recommended. The title story speaks of irony and hope.

Amazing classic novel that anticipated many of the societal issues we struggle with today including reproductive issues and governmental control of private acts and personal accomplishments.

Gentle, weird humor with a philosophical twist. If you haven't read any Kurt Vonnegut, this is a great place to start.
