I thought nothing could beat "Mother Night," but "Sirens of Titan" is my new favorite. Probably my favorite book in general. Vonnegut is (was?) genius.

Another good Vonnegut book. Actually, a long time ago, this is the first one that I started reading at a friend's house. It was quite bizarre, but it definitely made me want to read the whole book, and other Vonnegut. A very odd story, certainly nothing I would ever imagine on my own, and poignant in its own way. What is earth's history all about? Why are we here? How does time really work?

An actual, linear story by Vonnegut. I'd call it light SF/fantasy, with some dark humor thrown in. A bit dated, but quite readable. Not as good as Cat's Cradle, but definitely better than Breakfast of Champions in my opinion. Worth reading.

I have to say this book is like nothing I've ever read. It is entertaining, weird, outlandish and fun. It moves fast and I looked forward to reading each evening. However, I was a little disappointed in the ending but it was only because I wanted a little more insight and the author obviously wants you to make up your own mind. I would definitely read this author again though.
