    I like Kurt Vonnegut. I can't say I've read everything. Mainly I've read his two most famous books, Slaughterhouse Five, Breakfast of Champions (my favorite from him), and God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian, which is quite a fun read. I'll have to read some more Vonnegut when I get a chance. Nice review .

    Thank you for giving it a read! I agree, I really wish I had picked this one up earlier. It's a book that can have a profound impact if read at the right time.
