There's been a timequake. And everyone--even you--must live the decade between February 17, 1991 and February 17, 2001 over again. The trick is that we all have to do exactly the same things as we did the first time-minute by minute, hour by hour, year by year, betting on the wrong horse again, marrying the wrong person again. Why? You'll have to ask the old science fiction writer, Kilgore Trout. This was all his idea.… (mere)

Vonnegut's last "novel" though there's only fragments of story line. Like Barry Malzberg's Galaxies, this is a book about trying and failing to write an SF novel, the main character of which is Kilgore Trout, whom he "released" as a character in Breakfast of Champions. In the opening pages, Vonnegut says he is no longer capable of writing stories that go somewhere and reach a conclusion. That's sort of true but the book does conclude at an organic stopping point.

Timequake is also a collection of notes towards an autobiography, particularly about all the people in his life, and how many of them died. I happened to read this while watching the documentary "Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time" on Hulu, and I strongly recommend doing them in parallel. 3/4 novel, 3/4 movie, then novel end, then movie end. Things dovetail and reinforce each other quite nicely.

Recommended for anyone who liked Vonnegut but gave up after the classic early novels -- especially if accompanied by the documentary. ( )

Ranty in a chummy way. Mournful, for reasons outlined in the text. As depressing as it is slightly upbeat. It's the end, and he can't make more of things than they are. And he's right -the era of the novel is over. Slightly reminicscent of Phillip K Dick's "Counter Clock World". It does pick up pace as it goes along. I'd be inclined to categorize it as completist reading, unless you're a fan of his essays and short humor pieces. Probably not a good book for someone in the process of suicide ideation. He did make an attempt in real life and it is alluded to here. ( )

Wirft man also jeden Anspruch an Angemessenheit, Regeln und Form über Bord und überlässt sich dem assoziativ-manischen Monolog dieses dirty old man mit seinem bisweilen manieristisch wirkenden Hang zur Wiederholung, dann bekommt man sicher keinen Roman, aber einen erzählerischen Trödelladen mit einer ganzen Reihe von großartigen Fundstücken, wenn Vonnegut neben die Romanbruchstücke Reflexionen über sein Leben, das Universum und den ganzen Rest packt. Wer will, sollte versuchen, den Fisch ein zweites Mal zu filetieren.
 
Anyway, we should salute Vonnegut for giving us this, even if, as he suggests, he just tossed it off. It's not just his will that's free, but his mind. Timequake, both all over the place and perfectly fixed at the same time, is a sure-footed exemplar of the dictum that appears on page 191: 'Listen: We are here on Earth to fart around. Don't let anybody tell you any different!'
