This is a delightful book. If you get into it, it will only take you a couple of hours to read, but I think Vonnegut's thoughts and ideas will stay with you for a long time afterwards.
I have only recently started reading Vonnegut- having been aware of the name for a long time- and picked this up at my local library. I was attracted by the subtitle (a memoir of life in George Bush's America) and was delighted to read plenty of digs at that odd character who did impressions of the President of the USA.
There's much more to this book, however, including as it does Vonnegut's wry, cynical, exasperated and very funny observations on everything else worthy of ridicule, from the more vapid aspects of American culture, to semi-colons, on to Western man's love affair with fossil fuels and even the pros and (mostly) cons of early Saab cars.
Written in a delightfully laconic and earthy style, this is the equivalent of passing a lovely afternoon with someone older, wiser and far funnier than youself. It reminded me of Spike Milligan at his best. Like Spike, Vonnegut is a master of adopting an unexpected perspective on things, in order to expose some of the absurdities of life and thereby prove that "nothing could be as mad as what passes for ordinary living".
