Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"At 74, Vonnegut has had enough of the writing life, he tells us in the preface, and Timequake was obviously inspired by his sense that his life's work is winding down. But let me be just the latest to declare that this work has been a blessing. Vonnegut may not have finished the novel, but for a generation of readers he still writes the book." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"His funniest book since Breakfast of Champions....There are nuggets of Vonnegutian wisdom throughout." Newsweek

Review:

"Humorous, sardonic...Timequake makes for irresistible reading that's loaded with more important truths than it lets on....Moralizing has never been funnier." Chicago Sun-Times
