Kurt Vonnegut
    #4293632 - 06/14/05 01:04 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I just picked up a book that has three of Vonnegut's works in it;

Cats Cradle
God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater
Breakfast of Champions

Which one should I read first?

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

I'd recommend Cat's Cradle for a first Vonnegut book.

Breakfast of Champions is a great book so I recommend that. The others you mention I never read. Been meaning to pick up Slaughterhouse-Fivr.

I just found my copy of slaughterhouse 5 in the attic, but im reading the last book in the Hitchhiker's Guide series before I get to it.
I also found my copy of Welcome to the Monkey House....I'm going to read it before Slaughterhouse.....it's a bit overrated.

I love Vonnegut's sense of humor....
