  1. Empathized ("liked" just doesn't quite apply) with most of his books. Don't agree with his implicit and explicit anti-American screed, but knowing something of his background and experiences (although I never met him) and seeing the magnificent way his writing expressed the conscious clash of American idealism and world-weary pessimism, I give him some slack 8-) Vonnegut seemed well aware of the big emotional / intellectual contradictions in his books. He purposely put them there!
