I personally did not find the title piece the strongest, that title in my opinion going to the non-fiction essay, where he reflects on the profession he studied for but did not enter into - anthropology.
In the end, if you are a fan of the author, I can only recommend the book. It has the qualities of his other works (even if one certainly cannot call it one of his best), and is probably the last of his works to be made available. If Vonnegut is not your thing, the book is unlikely to change your mind, either. In spite of the bite sized format, I would still probably recommend one of his other books for a first taste of the author for those completely new to him.
For those who are familiar with Vonnegut's major novels (Slaughterhouse 5, Player Piano, Cat's Cradle, Breakfast of Champions, et al) this is a delight.
For those unfamiliar it is a great introduction to the mind of Kurt Vonnegut.
Although pidgeonholed as a Science Fiction writer, Vonnegut transcends boundaries.
His imagination may sometimes take us to the stars but he is equally adept in the darker recesses of the mind, as the opening tale of obsession shows. Time to Vonnegut is not linear, but a pool to be dipped in and out of in search of the story behind his characters and his humour always restores my joy in reading.

I am not a great fan of short stories, but never-the-less I enjoyed reading this collection. The twists in the endings were neat and often unexpected.Published on 27 Sept. 2013 by jimbo
If you have learned to love Mr Vonnegut, this certainly won't disappoint. Full of the usual acerbic wit and open heart that characterises his writing.Published on 9 Jun. 2013 by Amazon Customer
