5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Collection, 27 Feb 2007
By 
This review is from: Welcome To The Monkey House and Palm Sunday: An Autobiographical Collage: "Welcome to the Monkey House", "Palm Sunday" (Paperback)
Kurt Vonnegut has got to be my favourite novelist around. His writing is so unusual, captivating and unique. I've already loved his major books and wanted to read some of his acclaimed short stories. I got this mainly for the 'Welcome to the Monkey House' section which is the first 300 pages and for this alone gets the 5 stars. The short stories are so varse; some science fiction and others traditional love stories, they work so well as a collective. Major highlights are the titled story 'Welcome to the Monkey House' which is strangly beautiful. As well as the interesting 'The Euphio Question' and quite cruel 'All the King's Horses'. The second part is good but i alone recommend anybody to buy it purely for the short stories. An accumulation of old stories that ended up in magazines. Buy this book, you will not be disappointed.
