This is definitely the best book I have read this year. I laughed out loud and wept in public when I read it, which I can not say I have done many times before. It is a real page turner, I read it in one sitting, and I can not say I have done that many times either. It is as close to Vonnegut as I have imagine it can be. It has great and interesting trivia about landing on the moon. Great characters. Great beat and reads more like poetry, rather than drilling long passages of prose. Do check it out!
