“[Vonnegut] at his wildest best.”—The New York Times Book Review
Eliot Rosewater—drunk, volunteer fireman, and President of the fabulously rich Rosewater Foundation—is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature . . . with a little help from writer Kilgore Trout. God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is Kurt Vonnegut’s funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.
“A brilliantly funny satire on almost everything.”—Conrad Aiken
“[Vonnegut was] our finest black humorist. . . . We laugh in self-defense.”—The Atlantic Monthly

Vonnegut doesn't disappoint
Plain and simple, if you know Vonnegut, you know what's up. GBYMR was a slow burn and sometimes long, but his ability to flesh out even the most mundane characters is unparalleled and the dialogue is razor sharp. Yet another wonderful peek into the mind of a brilliant author.
Truly my favorite book and one that left my jaw on the floor after finishing it. A must read
Best book ever
It really is
