шка люлка“ и „Кланица 5“ за престижни вестници и списания но истинският голям Вонегът вече присъства във всяка дума всяка фраза Изказът е стегн. Good enough for a debutante Although the stories are not dated that s the feeling Like watching a good old movie too many clich s reality being edited out of the picture for the sake of a twisted ending Trial of a Feminizer picture for the sake of a twisted ending

ат без никакви излишества независимо дали става дума за цинични вестникари духа на Коледа дебелашки шеги или за саможертвата на бременна вдовиц. I love Vonnegut but I don t love this collection of short stories If Welcome to the Monkey House is Lord of the Rings Return of the King on DVD then While Mortals Sleep is 15 hours of Gollum outtakes and bloopers It s entertaining for fans but not that strong on its ownVonnegut is a master of taking a small slice of science fiction and turning it into a story about human relations That is almost entirely absent in this collection as this is a collection of earlier Vonnegut works The essential casual tone of Vonnegut is present but these stories are from very early in Vonnegut s career and lack a bit of polish The stories all have simple stories and simple morals freedom is good money can t make you happy This isn t necessarily bad but the moral is almost always buried until the very end which kind of made these stories read similarly and melt togetherMy favorite stories were Jenny the story about the man who made a robot duplicate of his wife Money Talks where a fortune literally has a voice in the narration and 10K A Year the story about an wannabe opera singer who happily settles as a donut vendor If you re a big Kurt Vonnegut fan you ll probably like this book If you haven t read Welcome to the Monkey House or any of Vonnegut s novels I would suggest going after those first
