Review: Welcome to the Monkey House

User Review  - Christine Laquer - Goodreads

Would give this one six stars if I could. Great, beautiful insights in each story. Sci fi touches highlight things we otherwise take for granted, but never cover over the real emotions of the stories. I actually, truly laughed and cried reading it this evening. Read full review

Review: Welcome to the Monkey House

User Review  - Phillip - Goodreads

"Who Am I This Time?" is probably my favorite story from this collection. They're pretty consistently entertaining with Vonnegut's characteristic "glimpse of the unattainable" showing up in many of them (all of them?). Read full review

About the author (1998)

Kurt Vonnegut was a master of contemporary American literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him, in the words of The New York Times, as ďa true artistĒ with the publication of Cat's Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, ďone of the best living American writers.Ē Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.
