Editorial Reviews

Review

“Poignant and hilarious, threaded with compassion and, behind everything, the cataract of a thundering moral statement.”The Boston Globe

“Very tough and very funny . . . sad and delightful . . . very Vonnegut.”The New York Times

“Splendid . . . a funny book at which you are not permitted to laugh, a sad book without tears.”Life

“Funny, satirical, compelling, outrageous, fanciful, mordant, fecund . . .  ‘It’s too good to be science fiction,’ [the critics] would say. But Vonnegut doesn’t care, and you won’t care, either, because this is a writer who leaps over genres.”—Los Angeles Times

1.0 out of 5 stars Great book, poor quality control
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 17, 2018
I love this book so I purchased it for my dad for christmas. When it arrived some of the pages were stuck together - the book had clearly been missed in quality control. This is so disappointing because I cant find a way to complain to the seller - I dont want to send the book back as it will be at my expense and effort, so I have just had to give it to my dad having taken a pair of scissors to it. It's only a small thing, but when you buy a book, at the very least you should be able to turn the pages -_-
