I Love Kurt Vonnegut

    Can't Get Enough

    I hate to admit this, but I only discovered Vonnegut about 1 and 1/2 years ago.  But once I did, I couldn't get enough.  He has an amazing wit, a subtle, absurd sense of humor and an incredible writing style.  And though I absolutely love this novels, I think I...

    See The Cat? See The Cradle?

    I loved Cat's Cradle. So realistic.So funny. So ironic. So non-conventional. So eye-opening. So original. So simple. So amazing. :) I love how Bokononism is a parody on all the world's religions. Just a set of lies. I love ice-nine. The impossible materialized. I love the funny...

    I Fell In Love With An Eighty-something Dead Man

    I'm too late. I'm so terribly young. At eighteen years old, I've found Kurt too late. I will never read his words as he breathes on this planet. But I will read his words. I've been a fan for a few years, and I'm ravenously eating my way through his works. I just read "A Man...

    Slapstick

    Is one of my favorite books. Kurt Vonnegut is so easy and fun to read! All of his books are so fun and amusing! But they also are more depthful than that... I used to think I would marry him, even though he was married, and dead.

    So It Goes...

    We had to read Slaughterhouse Five in our high school literature course, and it changed my view of what books and writing can do to help the human mind and soul evolve. After that, I read everything of Vonnegut's that I could get my hands on. Absolutely loved Breakfast of...

    I Cried When Vonnegut Died

    Growing up, I would constantly find "Sirens of Titan" placed on my desk, my bed, hidden in my pile of books to read, and some times just sitting on the kitchen table when I went out for breakfast. My dad was doing it from about the time I was 12. And like the moron I...

    I Love This Man.

    I love KV. His writing has done more to shape my world view than any other individual. I often make Vonnegut references in everyday conversation. Most of the time, these references go unnoticed, but once in a while, I get to share a moment with another fan. Two of my most valued...

    Breakfast of Champions

      When I was in high school, I noticed a girlfriend of mine reading this old beat-up looking, orange hardcover book. She left the room & I picked it up. After flipping through & laughing at some of the illustrations and the few words I had had time to quickly read...

    Welcome to the Monkey House

    Monkey House was the first book of his I read.  "Report on the Barnhouse Effect" was the first story of his I ever read.  It just grabbed my imagination and caused a part of my brain to come alive. Sad that he's gone, but he left one hell of a legacy in...

    My Favorite Author.

    I read a lot. I usually read between 4-6 books a week mostly non-fiction. The reason I don't read much fiction anymore is because Mr. Vonnegut set the bar too high. Even his less than successful books (I'm looking at you, Galapagos and Slapstick) are better than most other author...
