Is this book sci-fi? Historical fiction? Just plain old contemporary fiction? Yes, yes, and well, sort of, but there's nothing plain about a 1000-page tome whose plot jerks back and forth between WWII and the present, has plot elements that take place on I think four or five continents, and includes everything from treasure hunting to cryptography to manifestos about the evils of growing a beard. This novel defies succinct discussion--there's simply too much to cover. And the fact that it all fits into one book, and that yes, he actually does tie *everything* together at the end, is what really makes this book so brilliant.
A fun biography by a nonfiction writer who knew Vonnegut intimately. By including actual letters and personal accounts, this is a friendly biography that includes Kurt's family and literary history. Very fun for fans of Vonnegut.
I suppose this was an interesting story in many ways but there was something vaguely unsettling about the way it was written which meant I found it difficult to engage with the characters.
