2.0 out of 5 stars So So novel from a genius in his better moments, 5 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Galapagos (Paperback)
Firstly, I am a big fan of Vonnegut but this book left me a bit cold. It feels like all Vonnegut's tepid moments tepid moments put together in one book. The story is interesting but not enough to build a novel around. In fact it feels like a Kilgore Trout novel, a brilliant synopsis but aterrible story stretched out. Maybe this was the idea as it is told by Kilgore's son Leo but it feels unsatisfying. It soea have its own moments of tenderness adn insight hbut feels like too much of a moan against the human race that lacks the intensity and pace of Vonneguts other novels.
