A New York Times Notable Book from the acclaimed author of Slaughterhouse-Five , Breakfast of Champions , and Cat's Cradle .

At 2:27pm on February 13th of the year 2001, the Universe suffered a crisis in self-confidence. Should it go on expanding indefinitely? What was the point?

There's been a timequake. And everyone--even you--must live the decade between February 17, 1991 and February 17, 2001 over again. The trick is that we all have to do exactly the same things as we did the first time--minute by minute, hour by hour, year by year, betting on the wrong horse again, marrying the wrong person again. Why? You'll have to ask the old science fiction writer, Kilgore Trout. This was all his idea.

"If this isn't nice, what is?" || K.V. was a true gem, and though this particular book often gets overlooked, I'd recommend taking a look. He's funny and vulnerable and smart as always.

I love Vonnegut. This book is the most personal, touching, sincere of all his fiction work. Loved it :)

The numerous characters and uneven plot make for a difficult read, and somehow I feel it's underlying message is disguised as an autobiographical account of the author..perhaps I'm wrong

One crazy book full of strange ideas and great catch-phrases. Once you've read it, you won't be able to restrain yourself from walking around blurting out "Ting-a-ling!"
