5.0 von 5 Sternen Range of Stories from Sci Fi to Intimate Family Drama
From the wonderous humanity of EPICAC, the computer who loved a girl, to the simply yet imaginatively told story of "Thomas Edison's Shaggy Dog", to the black American soldier's relationship with a certain displaced person ("D.P.") to the title story's grim view of the future population (see also "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow", the...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Beware, admirers of Vonnegut!
"Monkey House" is a reminder that even the greatest artists had humble beginnings. This collection of Vonnegut's early work is shallow and boring and almost made me forget the great joy he has brought. I would recommend it neither to the Vonnegut novice or fanatic.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Range of Stories from Sci Fi to Intimate Family Drama, 26. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
From the wonderous humanity of EPICAC, the computer who loved a girl, to the simply yet imaginatively told story of "Thomas Edison's Shaggy Dog", to the black American soldier's relationship with a certain displaced person ("D.P.") to the title story's grim view of the future population (see also "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow", the last story in the collection), Vonnegut surprises with his humor, and then delivers a knockout punch with his pathos. *SPOILER* The story about the boy who cannot tell his parents that he didn't get in the School, and "The Kid Noone Could Handle" *END* Is the "fifty-year man" the real "Deer in the Woods"? One of my favorite stories has always been "More Stately Mansions" about the woman who yearns for a more perfect abode as collected and clipped from many home decorating magazines. The realism of his stories is kind of spooky sometimes. His prose writing is amazing--a master of the quick turn of phrase, the one-sentence description that reads like a book, the presence behind the prose somehow is able to make complex, profound ideas more simple, and vice versa. I first read this volume in 1974 on airplanes and while traveling to Africa at the age of 12. Some of it escaped me then, but by now I think I get it. And I recommend it highly!

5.0 von 5 Sternen SHORT STORIES????? These are all INGENIOUS tales!!!!!, 28. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
I have read a couple Vonnegut books and was hesitant to read his short stories. However, I was far from let down. I planned on reading one a day...but couldnt put it down. I really wanted to stop but they was such an assortment I couldn't wait to see what I was going to happen next. My personal favorites were "A Long Walk To Forever" and "Who Am I This Time?". These stories make you feel like you are there because Vonnegut has such a beautiful style of writing that sets the atmosphere!! I'm not into love stories and I knew what was going to happen, but "Long Walk" it gave me a great feeling to read the story and really got an awesome reaction out of me. "Who Am I" was incredible because it makes us think about ourselves as having some attributes of the characters in that we all serve as actors in our own life. It really made you look at the influences on your actions and who you really are and WHY YOU ACT THE WAY YOU DO!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Welcome to the Monkey House takes me places., 12. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
Welcome to the Monkey House takes me to places both mentally and emotionally. I have never been a big reader but a friend had mentioned the book. He said that it was a good read. I have to disagree with him. It was an ecellent read! I loved the first story to the last. Kurt hits every string with perfect cord. I feel like I'm watching T.V. when I read his stories. He describes in great detail the surroundings but lets you feel the emotions for yourself. "A Long Walk to Forever" is a great example; the magazine she is holding when he comes to the door, to the orchard they walk to; yet the ending takes you to the point that you know exactly what happens without Kurt having to tell you a thing. I truly believe that this is the best I'll ever read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic, 25. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
Worth the money just for "Harrison Bergeron," the greatest science fiction story of all time, and my favorite of all genres. It's the perfect story: short, funny, makes its point obvious without being preachy, and includes a scene (where the two main characters, freed from society's imposed handicaps, literally reach for the sky) that stays in your mind forever. If I manage to ever write a story half this good...well, I'm dreaming, I suppose, but this story remains my inspiration every time I sit down to write.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How tragic...I only have one copy, 21. Mai 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
This book is among my 10 favorite. This book has a story for every mood. Harrison Bergeron debates true equality, Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow focuses on the aged and their overwhelming numbers, and Firehouse Harris just discusses a man who is satisfied with his arrangement with life. All the stories within are so simple and yet, so developed, formed, and well-delivered that the only word that blankets this book is "elegance".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vonnegut's Short stories surpass his novels, 15. Juni 2000
Von 
Ernest Boehm (Des Plaines, IL United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
If you like Vonnegut this collection of short stories is a must. This is the only book of short stories that I have ever read cover to cover. This is the only book I reread almost on a yearly basis.
I have give this book as a gift often to people suprise they say that it is Vonneguts best work. Unlike other short story writers, Vonnegut short stories different from one another and do not repeat the same boaring gimmics over and over.
"All the Kings Men" is about an insane game of Chess
"Eipac" is about a computer who becomes more than a computer.
"Who will I be today" is about two people who fall in love by not being themselves.
"DP" is about a half black / half German orphan who stumbles on a unit of american GI's during WWII
"Slow walk into tomarrow" is about an AWOL soldier who goes takes a walk with only woman that he could ever lovethe day before she is to marry another man. (THIS IS THE BEST)
There are about ten more each unique as Vonnegut.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A collection of short stories from various sources, 10. November 2007
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
This book is a collection of 25 short stories. They are simple but you can if you want read great depth in them. These stories would make good starters for a reading group or circle. They are professional but not extraordinary or unique.

"The year was 2081, and everyone was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal in every way."

I bought this book for one story in particular "Harrison Bergeron"; I bought the movie with Sean Astin and thought even if the story was fleshed out to be more like "This Perfect Day". So I thought it would be time to read the story. Unfortunately the short story can not hold a candle to the movie. It never really gets off the ground and comes to a curt conclusion never resolving the conflict.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Long Walk to Forever., 7. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
C'mon..How could "The Long Walk to Forever" not be one of the best short stories ever written? The way it ends, kind of abrubtly, with the clipped, "She ran to him, put her arms around him, could not speak" is at once beautiful and natural. I dunno. I'm a huge fan, so I'm probably likely to enjoy most of his stuff, but this especially made me remember the book. Other highlights include: Who Am I This Time, and Epicac. Strongly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen just great., 20. Juni 2000
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories (Taschenbuch)
I honestly can say that literature like this can go along way in re-affirming your faith in the human race. For all the horrible stories in life we hear about horrible people doing horrible things; to know that there are human beings within our midst who are capable of presenting words on a page in a manner in which Kurt did here, it just makes you forget about all that other stuff.
