All of Kurt Vonnegut's books are strongly satirical and ironical (Vonnegut often uses very dark humor), funny, compassionate and extremely wise. Kurt Vonnegut also very often uses science fiction and comic book formulas (quick action, short dialogues et., which usually puts his books onto bookstore shelves marked "sci-fi". Vonnegut, however, doesn't take the sci-fi elements with the same seriousness as the other sci-fi writers, and that probably makes the difference between his works and science fiction.

First listened to this on line and liked it so much I bought the book.
This short story by Kurt Vonnegut, originally appearing in January, 1962, in Worlds of If, and nowhere else until this smart little book, looks at a future world where population control is strictly enforced by a simple law: for every child born into the world, someone must volunteer to leave it through government sponsored suicide. In this way, the world has managed to reduce its population to what the experts declare are manageable levels. With his quick wit and acerbic wisdom, Vonnegut asks, At What Cost?, as one father-to-be is faced with the prospect of triplets. This is vintage Vonnegut in the concise format of the short story -- a brilliant addition to anyone's Vonnegut collection and an excellent study piece for writers who strive to create short stories with meaning.
The cover is very thin, as a paperback. The design on the front is surprisingly beautiful. It's no more than 15 pages as a short story but so moving, I had to own it.

I suggest buying as long as you expect it to be kind of pamphlet-like.
Leave it to Vonnegut to cut right to the chase on the issue of overpopulation, and assisted suicide.

You choice, live forever and have no children and joy, or die to give someone a chance to be born in a controlled society... which one will u choose.

I bought this for two reasons - 1) I love Vonnegut and 2) at that price even if I didn't like it, at least I didn't spend much. Well you know what? It was still a ripoff. I spent 2 dollars and change for 17 pages of text... text that was available online for free, there are more blank pages in this book than there are pages with writing on them. I am highly disappointed.

As far as the short story itself... it's not one of his better works, it's about a world where there is no more death or aging and the effect that has on people. It's very short and belonged in a larger collection rather than a few folded in half pieces of paper labeled a "book."
This was actually a believable story. Fascinating, chilling, curious. I originally got the Kindle version which wasn't as beautiful as the book , but the book was for a gift , otherwise not worth the money for such a tiny book.
A semi-humorous view of a grim future that's all too possible. Please, moderators, this is a short dstory, so why do I have to write another short story before my comment gets posted?
I love Kurt Vonnegut and this story didn't disappoint me. But paying a "book" price for what should have been a chapter in a book did upset me! Somehow I don't think Kurt would think this was a good way to make money.
