I've read it, if that's what you're asking...but is there some kind of theory or question involved?

I'm a fan of Vonnegut's so I'm a bit biased, but I loved it. Time travel in it is closer to LOST's than most, but other than that, not a lot of parallels can be connected as LOST's mythology takes the show in a much different connection.

I thought it was a really good book. Of course I didn't understand it completely but from what I did get it was good.

I absolutely love Kurt Vonnegut.

There’s no real time travel in Timequake. The Universe has a hiccup and everyone has to relive the same year over again – aware of it but powerless to do anything differently. Sort of a combination between Des’s “mind skipping” and WHH.

I love Vonnegut, and the concept of the book was well inspired, but it was a mostly an uninteresting read for me. Of course it’s been a number of years since I read it and maybe I’m remembering wrong.

I've read almost everything Vonnegut several times. Currently finishing Slaughterhouse 5. I love that he is mostly writing science fiction, veiled in another literary style...He is probably in my top five favorite authors, truth be told...

The only decent part of this book is the "ting-a-ling" joke
