Reviews of Big Space Fuck, the (1972)

Review by chager (2006-10-23)
This is a very short story, which you can read in the "autobiographical collage" Palm Sunday. As usual, you'll recognize some of the characters' names. A very fun idea for a story, very Vonnegutian, but seemed to be cut very short to me. I have read all of Vonnegut's work, and all within the span of 11 months. I will say that although I love his work and share many of the same political and philosophical views with him, he sometimes to me doesn't seem so much an agnostic or atheist as a strong believer in god who's just really pissed off and rebellious against him. On the one hand he says he doesn't believe in god, but most every time he mentions god he seems to be thumbing his nose at him.
