Look at the Birdie

I just finished reading Kurt Vonnegut's latest posthumous collection of short stories, entitled after one of the stories Look at the Birdie and in doing so I think I managed to read almost every book of his. The collection includes 14 previously unpublished stories.

These stories have the markings of typical Vonnegut works, with black humour, science fiction and absurd situation. I liked the stories, some of them more than the others, and I must admit, there was one or two that I did not get. Either way, I recommend the book to everyone who likes Vonnegut's style and earlier books.

Now that I have finished reading, I can start boxing up my books and sending them home...
