This book is a crazy, seeming to head in all different directions. It covers a lot of social issues and much is about free will. It kind of makes fun of everything and is pretty 'out there' a lot. The way it is highlights how ridiculous things are in real life.

As a huge fan of Vonnegut, I was looking forward to reading Breakfast of Champions as one of his most famous works beside Slaughterhouse Five. As always, he keeps his syntax and sentence structure fairly simple, which for me is a main component of the charm of his writing. Breakfast of Champions w...

I hated this book. It made no sense. I have no idea what it was about. It is a literary Seinfeld.

Why, oh why, did I choose to read this particular book?I think I wouldn't have finished it if not for the fact I was reading it for a group challenge (immature, I know). Also, I knew there exists a film adaptation of this, so I hoped that something by way of a plot would appear. And it did, albeit d...

Kurt Vonnegut is a weird dude. This book is all but impossible to fit into a category of literature, but I suppose Science Fiction is as close as you can get. The book is basically the story of a few rather pathetic characters and their meandering lives working toward an intersection. Vonnegut pu...

This is one of those books they tried to make me read at school. Twenty pages in I told the teacher I'd accept an "F" because I couldn't understand a thing. So I've now challenged myself to read this and I can't say it's anywhere near something I loved but it's not so bad. I think BofC worked better...

The thing was: Trout was the only character I ever created who had enough imagination to suspect that he might be the creation of another human being. He had spoken of this possibility several times to his parakeet. He had said, for instance, “Honest to God, Bill, the way things are going, all I can...

Brilliant.One of Vonnegut's favorite recurring characters, Kilgore Trout, is invited to a Festival of the Arts in Midland City, to speak at the opening of a new arts center. This book tells the story of Trout's journey, with parallel stories for the characters he will meet when he arrives in Midland...

I’m afraid that I just didn’t love this book on the whole as much as I wanted to. While there indeed was humorous satire, I found a great deal that was just plain nonsense but some of that nonsense did ring true. The book touches upon a broad range of subjects and even includes child-like drawings...
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
I finished reading this book a few days ago and while I like to try to write my commentary soon after I have finished reading this book, others things (such as my monthly Friday Night Magic – and despite the fact that I absolutely suck at Magic – I still like to go) sort of got in the way. Anyway, i...
