Publisher Description

It is a science fiction short story by Kurt Vonnegut, originally published in the digest magazine Worlds of If Science Fiction, January 1962, and collected in Vonnegut's Bagombo Snuff Box (1999). The title is pronounced "2 B R naught 2 B", referencing the famous phrase "to be, or not to be" from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. In this story, the title refers to the telephone number one dials to schedule an assisted suicide with the Federal Bureau of Termination. Vonnegut's 1965 novel God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater describes a story by this name, attributing it to his recurring character Kilgore Trout, [1] although the plot summary given is closer in nature to the eponymous tale from the short-story collection Welcome to the Monkey House.

Vonnegut is my favorite author, but this tale is a little thin. It does remind me, however, of his amazing short story, “Welcome to the Monkey House.”

Short & Sweet Dystopia

A story that shows how humanity with all its problem solving capabilities can’t comprehend how fixing one problem creates many new ones. One of Vonneguts best!
