Look at the Birdie Reviews
"To be sure, they lack the polish and humor of the author's best-known work. Nevertheless, for devotees, they provide an instructive view of Vonnegut's talent in the making." - Publishers Weekly
"These early stories lack the polish of Vonnegut's classic novels but track the development of his hugely influential mix of sf and black humor. Important for fans, but first-time readers should start with the better-known titles." - Library Journal
"Everything here entertains, perhaps surprisingly." - Booklist
"The pieces are not dated, nor are we told whether they went unpublished because they were rejected or because the author was dissatisfied with them.For ultra-committed fans and Vonnegut scholars only." - Kirkus Reviews
