Picked up this book at the Blue Dragon here in Albuquerque on their community bookshelf. It looks interesting.

**UPDATE**

I just finished this book. It's the first Vonnegut book I've read, and I loved it. Maybe I liked the style of writing, maybe just the subject matter. Either way, I'd suggest this book to friends :-)

I'll be passing it along to another BC member very soon.

I tthought this was a great book...typical Vonnegut, which is probably why I liked it. ;)
I'd definitely tell a friend to read it.

Looking forward to reading this one, everyone here has been raving about it, and both BratPrince and Gillianne have told this friend about it.

From inside the front cover:

Could death be a quality? A place? Not an ending, but an occurrence that changes those it happens to?

Only Kurt Vonnegut could make it so--in a new work of the imaginzation of great beauty and distinction that is funny, dazzling, and disturbing.

In God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian, Vonnegut skips back and forth between life and the Afterlife as if the difference between them were rather slight. In thirty off "interviews"--with Sir Isaac Newton, Clarence Darrow, James Earl Ray, Eugene Debs, John Brown, Adolf Hitler, William Shakespeare, and Kilgore Trout, among others--Vonnegut trips down "the blue tunnel to the pearly gates" in the guise of a roving reporter for public radio.

Wow! This book was awesome! The interviews were all great, and there was a considerable buildup for the final interview, Mr. Isaac Asimov. The final words of that interview gave me a chill and boy could I relate! Hats off to Vonnegut for a most awesome experience! I will be passing this on to Anni99 shortly as she loves Vonnegut's work.

Wonderful writing! This book will stay with me long after it leaves my hands. (And will be one I will be keeping my eye out for so that I might add it to my personal collection!!)
