Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
I adore books that reek of marvelous postmodern perfume. This is one original, enthralling, always-relevant novel. Vonnegut is brave and cowardly because he makes the material his own, yet he is but scenery… his main character is an Everyman who is sooo affected by the Dresden bombings that he “becomes unglued from time.” Yes: war is complete, utter chaos… it becomes something more powerful than physics because it is so closely related to the complete termination of life, spirit, & earthly happiness.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
One of my few DNFs. I am the furthest from having a reading slump, I read everything that falls into my hands, but this book… I can’t torture myself anymore with it. So it goes.
