Bless You, Mr. Rosewater
I recently read Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, by Kurt Vonnegut. I usually love Vonnegut (Slaughterhouse Five and Cat’s Cradle were both amazing), but I didn’t think this book was quite as good. It was funny, but not laugh out loud funny. It was interesting, but not wildly creative. It makes you think, but not on the kind of scale of the other two books I mentioned. So, I’d say this book is still worth reading, but it still scores last place in the hierarchy of Vonnegut books I’v-read.
