This is a novel about the pleasures, pains and perversions of people and money.

On a roll with good books this year. Maybe more reason to continue cracking through my backlog.

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater is a humorous-yet-depressing novel about greed and politics in America, starring the troubled main character Eliot Rosewater, who finds a way to love even the most "useless" of people, in an economical sense. Obviously, this is troubling to his Senator father, as well as an outsider who attempts to use his love for the people as justification to call him insane in the courts. Very direct in its message and heavy-handed in its themes as Vonnegut tends to be. Such an engaging read that I essentially finished it in a day.

2023-10-15: I didn't get far and I'll come back to it but it wasn't the escape I needed from Awake.

2023-11-10: I think it's a recurring thing with Vonnegut that I dislike his books at the beginning and then love them further in. This book is genius. Elliot is the Buddha and Jesus and Lao Tzu all rolled up in a wrapper of compassion. He sees that the bullshit is bullshit where everyone else thinks it's gold. He cares about people just because they're people and because of that everyone thinks he's insane.

2023-11-19: I'm kind ambivalent about this one. The whole story was about how insane Elliot was because he treats people with kindness and respect. Even Elliot thinks he's insane. He certainly doesn't seem to see that he's right and it's the rest of the world that's broken. Elliot may be the only person that Elliot doesn't treat with compassion. ( )

My Vonnegut reread continues. This was one of my favorite books of his when I was a teen. It holds up remarkably well. What it said about the world then held true and magnified to a horrifying level. It is still one of my favorite and if you have never read it I would give it a shot. ( )

This satire about American money and where it comes from could have been written today and would be just as poignant. Elliot Rosewater realizes that he has been born near the "money river" and wants to be a man of the people. For that, everyone thinks he's crazy. ( )

Eliot Rosewater and money are the main characters in this Vonnegut classic. A satire about money! So glad it's satire. This is very good. Crackup after crackup, each and every page. Reminds me of the Marx brothers. I began to wonder if Vonnegut just thinks naturally in satire and humor ALL the time, just to combat all the darkness in his life. I love seeing how much Vonnegut loved crafting words together in this one. I could really see how much he loved words. I did NOT expect to love this more than Breakfast of Champions! 7/8 of the Vonnegut books I have read now have been favorites. (Player Piano went over my head.) The money aspects to this one reminded me a bit of 'Trust' by Hernan Diaz, if it had been a satire.

A sum of money is a leading character in this tale about people, just as a sum of honey might properly be a leading character in a tale about bees.

He coined a new word for Sylvia's disease, "Samaritrophia," which he said meant, "hysterical indifference to the troubles of those less fortunate than oneself."
"It seems to me," said Trout, "that the main lesson Eliot learned is that people can use all the uncritical love they can get."
