It turns out that I’m not the first to read Ron Currie Jr and think Vonnegut, but since I came up with the comparison before reading the reviews that came before me, I’m still claiming the insight as my own.
This is what Library Journal had to say about Everything Matters!:
This book is difficult to categorize. It’s a comedy, but it’s not particularly funny. It’s a novel of ideas, but it mocks intellectualism. It’s a fantasy, but it includes a cameo appearance by Sen. Olympia Snowe. This won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but fans of God Is Dead will love it.
