It's pretty good, though I think Vonnegut has a tendency to get written off as a gateway author or as a high school tier sort of thing. It might be nostalgia but I like almost everything he's written.

He's the personification of mediocrity.

Cats cradle would have been better if he spent more time fleshing out the characters, and if the conceptual centerpiece wasn't a retread of hippie-centric, aw-gosh-can't-we-all-just-get-along apocalyptic fear.

The characters were the only ones who could've helped that novel, and they were all completely inert.

Wasn't he satirising that mindset though? That's what drew me to the novel.

Sirens of Titan was better.

So far I've read Slaughterhouse Five, Sirens of Titan, Player Piano, and Mother Night.

That's because his prose tends to be on the sloppy side a lot of the time and he does very hokey, melodramatic things in all of his books that I've read so far. I don't dislike him, but his writing is very flawed on several levels. His ideas tend to be decent to good but his execution is lacking.

How is Mother Night? People have said it's his best.

The concept was interesting but his writing style doesn't really lend itself well to that kind of idea. It wasn't bad, and the last 30 pages or so make up for how uneven everything before them is, but it could've been a lot better if someone else wrote it.

I think Sirens of Titan was stronger because he's at his best when he doesn't try to ground himself in reality too much.

It's apparently pretty damn good because my brother stole it from me before I got a chance to read it. I bought that book like 3 years ago, and left it on the kitchen table. My brother picked it up and I haven't seen it since. Fuck you David, I also want The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books back.

It's okay. Clever and interesting, but not amazing. Vonnegut is overrated.
