Slapstick, and other Vonnegut stuff

I enjoyed the prologue, looking forward to the rest of the book. The last books of his I read were 'The Sirens of Titan' and 'Galapagos', which I enjoyed but were pretty out there, in a disturbing messing-with-your-brain sort of way. Anyhow... Finding an excuse to post here is tough sometimes. Hi ho?

If you haven't read Vonnegut's 'Cat's Cradle' I recommend it. I haven't read either 'Slapstick' or 'Galapagos' yet. Perhaps I'm due for a trip to the library.... -Nile

yeah Cat's Cradle is good too.. Player Piano is probably still my favorite tho -- I'd recommend it to you. Just finished 'Jailbird', which I enjoyed as well.

Now to mix it up, and to read 'The Road'..

it has been almost 1/2 a year since we had some WDL love. is it dead?
plz, prove me wrong.

i have read player piano and i think that i liked the whole story. it seems that jailbird is a recomendation as well, i'll give it a try when i find some free time. the latest book i read was flatland, a romance of many dimension from Edwin A. Abbott give it a try you might find it interesting. i enjoyed most of it :)

Ahh flatland, yeah I read that (my brother gave it to me a few years ago).. maybe I should reread though, it was short...

Vonnegut rip off but approved

Venus on the Half Shell
by Kilgore Trout

I've read all of Vonnegut and I would say Sirens of Titan and Breakfast of Champions are the best ones IMO
