A fun and worthy collection of the master's shortstories, "While Mortals Sleep" is surprisingly light on the writer's famous science-fiction, though still present in bouts. Instead, Vonnegut opts to fill his stories with love, longing, and a thoughtfully reflective perspective that seems appropriate for the man in his later years. However, the trademark sense of humor is rampant, and a few of the stories, particularly the romances, are borderline classics, filled with heavy emotions though served in a light tone in a brief sitting.

Another great collection of previously unpublished stories. All were good. I don't think I could select one story over another

Since I agreed to read and review a biography about Kurt Vonnegut I checked out some books of his from the library. First let me say that the only thing I knew about Vonnegut was that he wrote ¿Slaughterhouse Five¿ and I didn¿t even know what it was about, from reading different descriptions, I get the impression is it science fiction. I decided to read this book first since it satisfies both of my challenges for this year. A library book and a book of short stories.While these stories would not be described as thrillers or suspense, and there are no `plot twists¿ in them, at times the reader gets thrown a curve, sometimes you see the curve coming, even so they are still interesting to read and I quite enjoyed them. Even the ones that seem to be `straightforward¿ have a bit of a twist to them. I would say, for me at least, that none of these stories are predictable or are `cookie cutter¿ stories.

In total, I've read maybe five or six works by Vonnegut and while not a fan initially, he's growing on me. I enjoyed this collection of short stories better than his best-known works and will continue delving into his previous works as long as my enjoyment continues. He does have a spark and these stories are full of his wit. I also have to a acknowledge that I do find myself saying, "and so it goes" when things just aren't working out how I want them to...so I have him to thank for that.
