Kurt Vonnegut

Discuss all things Kurt Vonnegut.

Personally, I find his theories on time to be very interesting.

Actually, I find his theories of time to be rather shallow and pedantic.

I adore Cat's Cradle, but I haven't read very much of his other work.

Slaughterhouse Five... End of discussion. Doesn't get trippier on time than that.

He is without a doubt my favorite author. Steinbeck is the only person who can dream of coming close.

Good to see such an amazing author getting some love here.
I've read Slaughterhouse-Five multiple times, and I'm actually headed to the library as soon as I can to pick up Player Piano and Galapagos.
I really love his time travel/determinism theories, and I use it as a basis for judging all literature and film regarding time travel.
