The title story is excellent. It is short storytelling at it's best.
This collection is a look into early assorted Vonnegut that reveals the development of his writing and life. A must have for all fans of the esteemed Mr. Kurt Vonnegut Jr. His short stories are sharp and funny and hold as true as they did when they were written, long ago in another century. He teaches us much about this world we all inhabit. Things that other people might not tell you. READ THIS!
John A. reviewed Bagombo Snuff Box: Uncollected Short Fiction on
I enjoyed this book alot. I am a big Kurt Vonnegut fan and this was a book I did not yet have. I liked the short story format, so I could read a story while waiting in the car or before falling asleep. I am anxious to pick up a copy of Palm Sunday.
"Bagombo Snuff Box" is a mix of ordinary stories that are anything but ordinary. The real life mysteries of it all come to life through the character's mundane lives and how the reader can relate. Kurt Vonnegut tells it like it is and allows the reader to realize how life is through his characters. An easy-relatable read--that is good for the beach or your porch swing.
