    "I sometimes poke at whatever crap my wife's reading, which is how I happened on this. It's not as bad as some of the things, but, reading about a girl named Honey is really too much. No one gets eaten by a python, and there are no wild orgies in the everglades. A generally worthless book, if you ask me."

    "I enjoy fiction books but this one seems a bit too campy. It's also too closely written like non-fiction, which I don't enjoy often."

    "Vonnegut's classic tale of the futility of war is funny, thought provoking and a mile stone of twentieth century fiction. A good place to start if you're just getting into this author's works and a book that will stay with you for quite some time. "

To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary "

    "The best novel with humor? That's Candide. Its satirical humor - the kind that America Loves best. Otherwise we wouldn't have so many talk show hosts like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel. Candide is like that, but more dark humor. Also, no television. "
