Sci Fi is not my favorite genre, and I really do not enjoy stories of dystopian societies. So I was not thrilled when Vonnegut’s book of short stories popped up as the pick in my book club.
There were a lot of stories of dystopian societies.
However, there were also stories of human connections and discovery and self-discovery. And some of these things could even be found in the stories of dystopian societies.
My two favorites were The Foster Portfolio, a story about a man that doesn’t want his wife to know he has inherited a fortune; and the Manned Missiles, an exchange of letters between two fathers that have lost their sons in the Cold War Space Race.
