      I was the great marksman, anyway If I aimed at nothing, then nothing is what I would hit Kurt Vonnegut, Deadeye DickThis is one of those Vonnegut novels, I ll probably hold off giving to my son to read Not yet son You aren t quite ready for this depth of existentialist Vonnegut despair The world is sometimes a rotten place, it really is, but I don t want to step on all his hope too early Once when I was young, and I said something cynical and sarcastic in front of my father, he rebuked me and sa [...]

    2. MJ Nicholls on said:

      This is satire at its blackest Deadeye Dick might be the angriest of Vonnegut s books nuclear weapons, small town life, hopeless parents and marriages, drug addiction, warped governments, racism, police brutality and gun laws It s all here in this mulligan stew of righteous indignation.Brilliant A real tour de force of grumpy trouble making.

    4. Daniel Montgolfier on said:

      Before this, I had read a number of Vonnegut titles But, unlike all of his other works that i have encountered, this one had a significant lack of science as far as the science fiction goes There was no space opera that we find in The Sirens of Titan There were no aliens, like in Slaughter house 5 and no time travel either There was not a single gram of Ice Nine nor was there an omniscient narrator that met his colorful creations at the end to give them advice Apart from a neutron bomb at the en [...]

    5. Michael Gallone on said:

      Personally, this is one of, if not, my most favorite book of all time I feel like it doesn t get as much praise as it should in the way that Vonnegut gives you a character that is human, but because of his life has become something like a creature than anything else and finds so much difficulty interacting with other humans and able to understand the things they do and what he should do because he has been made out to be so alien from the moments when he was young all the way up to adulthood Th [...]

      I like different Vonnegut novels for different reasons I enjoyed the space epic that was The Sirens of Titan for the scale of its journey I liked Slaughterhouse 5 for the incredibly powerful anti war message it conveyed not to mention its absurd sadness Mother Night was beautiful in a picturesque way I actually thought Galapagos was a little dry, but the ideas it explored made it memorable than some other works What was common to all of them was the strength of the satire and the gripping prose [...]

    8. Ewan on said:

      The weakest Vonnegut book I ve read so far having read all except Player Piano and Hocus Pocus Very little in the way of a story, which is not always a bad thing in itself, but it feels rather aimless and doesn t really go anywhere It s a shame as it s full of brilliant Vonnegut isms, little philosophical witticisms and remarks, but there s nothing really to hang it on Actually, thinking about it, there is quite a lot going on, but it s rather a mess and without some kind of direction or story t [...]

    9. Tyler on said:

      To be honest I m a bit of a Vonnegut fanboy And by a bit I mean, He s my favourite author I like everything I ve ever read by him, a lot I just love his writing style, I love how he uses simplistic language but explores much bigger, heavier issues with it I love his brand of satire I love his weirdness, how he often puts slightly odd plots and plot devices in his books While Deadeye Dick isn t his best, it s still pretty awesome He expertly explores the death of innocence While I m reading a Von [...]

    10. Denis on said:

      This is the Vonnegut novel that called death, shut his or her peep hole This is the Vonnegut novel that had cooking recipes sprinkled here and there throughout And dialogue written in the form of short plays as well This is the novel that had the misinformation about the Creole language only being in the present tense and the neutron bomb not wrecking anything but the living things And so on.This is a most depressing novel about a small town in Ohio that nobody cares about Where all the people t [...]

    11. Laura on said:

      3.5 starsI ve read better by Vonnegut, but this was still a delight.His discussion about a person s story vs their epilogue was enlightening I ll definitely be thinking about it for some time.

      I m from way up north where the blueberries grow where high school shuts down for the opening of deer season and kids learn to load buckshot before they hit puberty If you do something in the morning, everyone will sure as shit have already heard about it by evening It s safe to say that I live in a small town And this, in a way, is sort of what this story is about Rudy Waltz is the infamous Deadeye Dick of Midland, Ohio Everyone knows him, and what he did, and those hometown nicknames are hard [...]

    13. Chris on said:

      Vonnegut is back at full strength I m reading his novels in chronological sequence and the two written after Breakfast of Champions were a disappointment at best With Deadeye Dick, his power returns, with a mature end of life perspective Even though Vonnegut was only 59 while writing it, you get the feeling that his personal story has ended, and its epilogue has begun This is not a guess he admits it for himself, through his characters, and is a main theme of the book.Between its opening lines [...]

      I finished this book for two reasons 1 I m a Kurt Vonneget fan and want to read all of his books 2 I don t like to start a book and not finish it That s it I can t say that I enjoyed this book, or really remember too much about it The plot was almost pointless and it was beyond jaded It s saving grace for Vonneget fans is that it gave some insight into his view of the world, which was nice However, I wouldn t suggest this book to anyone other than those people who want to read everything by him [...]

      To the as yet unborn, to all innocent wisps of undifferentiated nothingness Watch out for life Life is the opening and closing of peepholes in time, each peephole telling a story There s quite a bit going on here, but it focuses largely on the loss of innocence, life s story, and life s epilogue Rudy Waltz fast became one of my favorite KV creations His recipes and memory playlets added a layer of complexity to the character and style As always, Vonnegut is the master of satire.

    16. Lee Foust on said:

      Another review lost when Firefox crashed Sigh Start again.Although Deadeye Dick was written by a seasoned Vonnegut, at the height of his skill as a master of American diction in prose, this novel just doesn t quite come together for me 100% The witty, pithy, and yet still heartrendingly human and vulnerable sentiments that are Vonnegut s trademarks are here in spades Bravo A good read indeed But, but, something seems to be missing from this one, something I can t quite put my finger on.The novel [...]

    17. Russel on said:

      there s something about most Vonnegut novels that isn t dull exactly but plodding and precious and v one dimensional like it is impossible to think that it will matter if you finish the book or not nothing will happen.

      A wise man once said, The key to happiness is low expectations Despite being that wise man, I failed to heed my sage advice and went into this book with fairly lofty expectations because it s Vonnegut.It s basically a non chronological auto biography of the main character, Rudy Waltz, and centers around the following line That is my principal objection to life, I think It is too easy, when alive, to make perfectly horrible mistakes He begins by telling us that his father, Otto Waltz, was born in [...]

    20. Oriana on said:

      I picked this up because I wanted to read a Kurt Vonnegut book that I haven t read before, and neither the title or the back cover synopsis sounded familiar to me But it only took a chapter to realize that I have indeed read this before, probably several times And that s the thing about Kurt Vonnegut I ve always found bewildering His books are so good, right But, with the exception of Cat s Cradle and Breakfast of Champions and Slaughterhouse Five, obvs , I never remember them for than a few da [...]

    21. Bookhode on said:

      I am not really sure why I liked Deadeye Dick When you talk about this book, there is not much you can say about the plot, or the characters, or even about a message it should deliver In many ways, this is a book about nothing, but it somehow manages to remain interesting in almost Seinfeldesque way.The novel is a personal life story told by Rudy Waltz, who got the nickname Deadeye Dick as a kid when he accidentally shot a pregnant woman In the resulting lawsuit, Waltz s previously rich family l [...]

    22. Derek Davis on said:

      Warning Don t read this novel if your house has burned down or somebody shot your dog Written two years before Vonnegut s 1984 attempted suicide, it s the most depressing and depressive novel I ve ever read.The narrator, Rudy Waltz, as a teen accidentally shot and killed a pregnant woman while minding his father s gun collection His father, a wealthy but totally untalented would be artist in Midland City, Indiana, after a brief friendship with Hitler bought and outfitted a massive carriage house [...]

    23. Nick Baam on said:

      Cannot believe Vonnegut ever wrote a better book than this Brilliant from beginning to end.Some gems If a person survives an ordinary span of sixty years or , there is every chance that his or her life as a shapely story has ended, and all that remains to be experienced is epilogue Life is not over, but the story is And I suppose that s really what so many American women are complaining about these days They find their lives short on story and overburdened with epilogue And It is virtually impos [...]

    24. Tasha Robinson on said:

      Just read this for the first time, and found it to be pretty minor Vonnegut on the Vonnegut scale It s interesting to see him working with a conventional plot, and less with unconventional philosophy, and channeling his signature cynicism into plot developments rather than explanations of the world for the readers, but there just wasn t much surprising here, particularly compared with his later works, essays, and short fiction The ending was pretty unsatisfying, and the intro where he lays out [...]

    25. Cristhian on said:

      Ouquei.Antes que nada, solo le este libro por el hecho de que se encuentra dentro del mismo microverso de Breakfast for Champions praise, praise, praise es decir la siempre rara Midland City donde se mencionan a los Hoover y otras referencias a ese libro.La premisa es interesante una bomba de neutrones arras con todos los pobladores anteriores y ahora se vive una vida normal sobre los restos de los que alguna vez la habitaron Ain t that cool Yep, it is El problema es que no se explora mucho eso [...]

    26. Chris on said:

      Deadeye Dick isn t one of Vonnegut s most famous books, but I think it s among his best It s funny and mordant obviously , but I really like the structure of the book The point of the book is that life is unpredictable and takes you by surprise, which is reflected in the structure Very early in the book we learn that the narrator, Rudy Waltz, runs a hotel in Haiti with a voodoo head waiter He lives there because his hometown was wiped out by a neutron bomb The reader expects that the story will [...]

    27. Jesse on said:

      It would be a dangerous thing, I think, to read too much Vonnegut in too short a period It would cause the weaker among us i.e me to probably fall into a slight depression which only gargantuan amounts of Looney Tunes and Reese s Pieces would cure Deadeye Dick, like most everything else I ve read by Vonnegut, is so funny that you don t realize until you ve finished just how monstrously bummed out the guy is making you It s a brilliant book It hurts a lot It s probably not his best But I always t [...]

    28. Samantha on said:

      It s been a while since I read Vonnegut, but this novel has renewed my thirst for his works The commentary in this book is hilarious and completely on point I think this might be one of my favorite of Vonnegut s works I love black humor and I love his writing style and the intelligence of his work is always so great I busted through this book over the course of a few hours, spread out over a highly productive day, and thoroughly enjoyed myself I m so glad I decided to dive into this book It was [...]

    29. Patrick Book on said:

      This might be, in my opinion, Vonnegut s most under rated work He turns a magnifying glass on a small Midwestern American city and creates a stirring portrait of characters whose lives are tightly intertwined, their tragedies echoing and rebounding off of each others tragedies, rippling endlessly and so on The interconnectivity of suburban life, its boredom and excess, are all presented her in a tragicomic fashion that is quintessentially Vonnegut Never has death on such a grand scale been so ab [...]

    30. Jeremiah Wood on said:

      This was my first Kurt Vonnegut book Vonnegut was recommended by a friend who thought I would enjoy his satirical works and cynical, otherworldly humor Quite frankly, she hit the nail on the head Deadeye Dick was even than I could ever imagine, with fascinating, complex characters, clever writing, and disturbing, yet thought provoking scenarios.I anticipate what other surprises Vonnegut has in store for me
