Taylor I have a Vonnegut recommendation!

message 2: by Kelly (new)

Kelly You know, it's funny. Of all the books I was expecting to see when I clicked on that... I haven't even heard of this one! I'll have to look into it, though. It sounds different enough from Slaughterhouse Five.

Jack Kelly,

I was about to recommend "Sirens," but Taylor already has, so I offer a "Ditto." I have read all of his novels, and most of his short stories, and at least "liked" all of them, many I loved. I list Vonnegut among the handful of my favorite authors. "Sirens of Titan" is my personal favorite. But, they all are warm, absurd, and profoundly human.

Kelly Jack,

Thank you. It's good to have a second opinion about which book is best to read next. Vonnegut does tend to produce some... slight disagreement. As I'm sure you're aware, since he's of your faovrites. :) I will definitely make sure that this one is on my list. Which is getting sinfully long thanks to this site, I have to say!

Jack Yeah, a friend pushed me into this site less than a month ago, after we both finished finals. I feel kind of like a meth addict must feel. The site beckons, has me itching to get on and feed my habit.

Jaguthin Without a doubt, read Deadeye Dick. That one is worth is just for the first page. Avoid Life!


message 7: by Daniel (new)

Daniel I'm late to the game, but I'd recommend "Breakfast of Champions." It might be my favorite Vonnegut; it was also my first, and perhaps the first Vonnegut book you read will always be your favorite.

Manny Funny how everyone has a different recommendation! I would have said Cat's Cradle was obviously his masterpiece, with Mother Night second.

message 9: by s.penkevich (new)

s.penkevich I'm years late to adding to this, but if you haven't by now read any of his short stories, I would highly recommend them. They are usually very entertaining, funny and satirical like his novels, only truncated to a few pages.

Cecily I've only read a few Vonnegut (including this), but my favourite is Galapagos: funny, but with lots to think about (my review here:

message 11: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Thanks for the recommendation. Years later, I still haven't gone back to Vonnegut, but I hope to someday soon!

message 12: by Arnie (new)

Arnie I would recommend Breakfast of Champions and God Bless You Mr. Rosewater. When Vonnegut first became a cult hero among college students, many of them cited Cat's Cradle as a favorite.
