    "My parents think they're hilarious. They must've, since they named me Richard. And they know I like Kurt Vonnegut, so I can only assume they were trying to be funny with this. But I don't like the implications that the book makes about Asexuals- after all, I am one- and they know this. Thanks, mom and dad. You're a real class act. Worst book by Vonnegut."

    "One of the better and even the best books written by Kurt Vonnegut which is a necessity of those looking at reading American influential writers. I really thought this book was thought provoking, satirical in a way, and very well paced."

    "This is easily my favorite book written by Kurt. His way of telling the stories, reviews, interviews, ETC. are just so perfect. It's a roller coaster ride through the story as he takes you from place to place in his busy exciting world."

    "I have heard about this author in college and the books that he has written. I would probably buy these 12 short stories because he talks about war and peace and his own experience during war. I believe that everyone should read books about war because it is history and we should not repeat the horrors of war especially during WWll nazi camps."

    "I'm a huge fan of Vonnegut; I love his writing style and sarcastic, satirical tone. I feel like there's a bit more humor in Jailbird compared to his other books, so it's somewhat of a more enjoyable read. Vonnegut touches on important themes in this novel that are still very much relevant today. The novel is a nice mixture of highbrow and lowbrow commentary, so it's suitable for a wide audience. "

    "Not to often a book can really make me laugh, A Man Without a Country written by Kurt Vonnegut is one of them. Much of it is thoughts and ideas that makes the writer question and resound to many current topics at the time. Its not a long book by any means. With being so short and a quick read you could finish in a day or two."

    "Breakfast of Champions is one of the most famous Vonnegut novels, and while it's not my favorite it's still a good one. The storytelling is more fragmented than i prefer but to an extent that adds to the overall vibe of the plot."
