I'm always the last to know

"we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you any different"

So i just found out -- a month after the fact -- that kurt vonnegut died. If you haven't read any of his books, please do. Start with Slaughterhouse five. It's a short read, worthy of a very long read.

Buy it. Pay full price if you have to. It's the best novel of the twentieth century. I've read a lot of other contenders, but Slaughterhouse five is a very long way in front.

If you like that then read Cat's Cradle too. If you like that then read God Bless You Mr Rosewater.

On the other hand, If you like slaughterhouse five but hate cat's cradle then read 'time's arrow' by martin amis. If you like slaughterhouse five but hate cat's cradle and hate time's arrow by Martin Amis then read Catch 22 by Jospeh Heller. If you're still not happy, then just read Slaughterhouse Five again. And again.

Next time someone mentions a war somewhere I'm going to say "Did Kurt Vonnegut die for nothing?"

And no, it's not going to make much sense, but I think I'll say it anyway.

miss you already.
