Bluebeard by Vonnegut
    #2981424 - 08/09/04 01:55 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

So I am reading it because some of you recommended it on the literature thread here not too long ago....when I checked it out at the library, the guy working there was stoked as he had just read it and said he really enjoyed it.

Well, I am about one third the way through and am thoroughly loving it so far.  I haven't read Vonnegut for a few years and am so happy to rediscover him.  He is so very talented. I swear, few things are better than reading a well-crafted book.

Thanks for recommending it!  :cool:

Great book.

I've only read Cat's cradle and Slaughterhouse 9. Are they all good? I would have to guess that they are.

I suggest Breakfast of Champions to all first time vonnegut readers, because I believe it to be easily understandable.
