5.0 out of 5 stars This book has a spectacular blend of comedy and drama., May 17, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Welcome to the Monkey House (Mass Market Paperback)
"Welcome to the Monkey House" by Kurt Vonnegut is probably the best collection of short stories I have ever read. It has a great combination of comedy, drama, suspense, and action. Mr. Vonnegut has a way of including a lot of detail but not so much as to bore you. You often find yourself getting so caught up in the story that you feel almost as if you are there. The story "Epicac" was among the best in the book. It takes place in the fifties and the first super computer has been built. A man tells the computer about the problems in his love life and the computer actually has an answer for him. He and the computer continue to have these conversations until one day the computer develops emotions. He feels the need to be loved and burns out trying to figure out why he can't be. "Welcome to the Monkey House" is another good story in the book. It takes place in a future where sex is outlawed. Then this man comes along who refuses to take his hormonal control pills. He persuades many women to join him on his quest. He then kidnaps a woman and takes him to a hidden place where they make love. "Welcome to the Monkey House" is a fast paced book for any reader. It will keep you enthused with its detail and entertained with its humor.
