    Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut

    I cannot remember why I suddenly decided to read Slaughterhouse Five, I think I might have seen an article written about it, or perhaps the bombing of Dresden during World War II that mentioned it. Whatever it might have been it was enough to capture my interest and I picked it up. I had...

    Further reading: P.K. Dick and Kurt Vonnegut

    This place (the Chronicles) and the people here keep amazing me. All of those interesting and fun discussions and such good answers to questions.

    Kurt Vonnegut

    It is about time I read more Vonnegut. I've only read Slaughterhouse Five, and that was over a year ago. Is there any order I should read them in? Which ones are definitely his best?

    Is Kurt Vonnegut a genius or just plain insane?

    Me personally...I'm going to compromise and say he's a mad genius
