    I went through a mad Vonnegut phase. I think I read them all

    I also re-read Fahrenheit 451 recently and was kinda disappointed

    We are very proud of our native Hoosier son, Vonnegut. May he rest in peace. Philip K. Dick is really good as well.

    I'm in the middle of a 1200+ page epic sci-fi that is good but I got overwhelmed
    by it's massive size and scope and put it down for a bit, picked up January's Dancer
    by Michael Flynn, sounded good but the back cover makes more sense than the story
    contained within, now I am lost and listless and yearning for some good sci-fi.

    I would like to help you Goatcabin but I'm pretty much spent on all fiction. I like real stuff now :)
