This is definitely not Vonnegut's best book. The pace of the book was really slow and nothing much happened in the plot. I missed his interesting writing style as well. Still, I liked the humour and the social criticsm, although it was sometimes not easy to understand.

To paraphraze Winston Churchill, if you don't weep over Vonnegut's acclaimed social satire at 20, you have no heart. If you still weep while re-reading it at 35, you have no brain. By masterfully portraying the abyss between the "dirt-poor" and "filthy rich", wittily arguing that the latter are far more useless than the former, Vonnegut only casually mentions the fairly well-washed millions in between; the ground on which the demarcation lines are blurred, and his personal rules of humanism are frequently set aside in favor of garden-variety street smarts. Vonnegut's trademark quirky characters, vivid style, and tight, beautifully wrapped up plot are, as always, very useful weapons in his emotional blackmail: if you don't see the world on his terms, if you take neither side, be ashamed of yourself! Be very ashamed of yourself...

Like Elwood P. Dowd (the hero of Mary Chase's play "Harvey") Vonnegut's Eliot Rosewater is a wealthy drunk with heart of gold who drives his loved ones batty and nearly ends up permanently committed to the booby-hatch because of his uncommon generosity and love for the ordinary people of his small home town. Instead of a large invisible rabbit, Eliot chooses as his soulmate science-fiction writer Kilgore Trout, who becomes a sort of imaginary best-friend to Eliot, and, like Harvey, only asserts his actual presence at the end of the story. The book is better than the play (or the James Stewart movie, for that matter), but it is not one of Vonnegut's best. In "Palm Sunday" Vonnegut gives this book an "A." I'd rate it a "C." It's nowhere near as good as "Mother Night," for instance.

"God Bless you, Mr. Rosewater", is one of Kurt Vonnegut's greatest books. It is based around Eliot Rosewater, a warm hearted, eccentric millionare, and presendent of the Rosewater Corporation, a incredibly rich foundation that is passed along from father to son. He abandons the high life in NYC, and moves to Rosewater County in Indiana, his family's home. Eliot begins to help the poor people (which is all of Rosewater County) with their personal problems, and soon becomes the "father" of them all. A lawyer, seeking the Rosewater fortune for himself, sets out prove that Eliot is insane. I won't tell you the ending, but suffice to say that it is excellent. Vonnegut shows us thatmoney isn't everything, and a poor person from Indiana is just as important as a Senator from New York. A matchless book.

This book is truly a pearl. This work and "Slaughter House Five" are the two anchors of my Vonnegut collection. As I began to collect his books, I was like an avid junkie who couldn't wait to get her next wry-wit fix from Mr. Trout and company. I have gone through 2 copies of "God Bless you Mr. Rosewater" after being worn out from many re-readings but no matter how tattered & torn, I still have them -- tape, notes in the margins and all! My collection, all in paperback, is one of my prized posessions that I hope to share with my child as my mother had done for me. You will enjoy this work and if it is your first experience with Vonnegut, what a treasure you have found!

After reading a vast assortment of Vonnegut's work I found this book unsatisfying in the extreme. Usually honest, often brutally so, Vonnegut works this book into a crecendo of cheesiness. What had potential to be a genuine classic like "Breakfast of Champions", "Dead Eye Dick" and "Slaughter House Five", became nothing more than a cheap commentary on the human race with a sappy 'love thy neighbour' quality. If I want to be scammed by an unimaginative ending I will go to Hollywood; movies are less time consuming.

Vonnegut gives us an excellent commentary on the dichotomy of social hierarchies, as well as making us laugh out loud. He conflicted the drunk with all the money and the runty lawyer who wants to swindle him out of it. We can see that there are factions within factions and utterly wealthy men who still have hearts in this fictional world adorned by the ideas of a very inventive Mr. Kilgore Trout. Volunteer firemen, fishermen and senators all in one little book. Classic Vonnegut.
