Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae. ~Kurt Vonnegut

Great quote. Goodnight, Mr. Vonnegut. Thank you.

And thank you Zapped for your service.

Depends on the novel, I would think.
Maybe Vonnegut spoke in a different time & age.
Some are really quite bad now and I do hate a few. :-)

susan- yeah, some books aren't so good, but I liked Kurt's analogy - so visual and messy ;)

He will be missed.

I heard an interveiw with him once- even the flippant things he said were deep!
