Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonneguth

I read my fourth TBR book in one evening at the beginning of May, but couldn`t push myself to write a post about it.

"Breakfast of Champions" is my first ever read book from Vonneguth`s writings. I wasn`t sure if I`ll like it, because I have heard that whether you love or hate Vonneguth, there is no middle way. I think I`ll be the one who love :)

I suppose anyone knows this book, so I won`t repeat the plot. I liked the way Vonneguth tells stories, also in some places I got little but unsatisfied by his sudden change of story - his is swiftly switching between different subjects. One thing I liked the most, is his laughing about things other people take seriously:

There were one quadrillion nations in the Universe, but the nation Dwayne Hoover and Kilgore Trout belonged to was the only one with a national anthem which was gibberish sprinkled with question marks.
Some Vonneguth audio books are waiting for me, so I`m going to dig deeper into Vonneguth world.

I've never read any Vonnegut novels before. I only tried the first page of Slaughterhouse Five, did not really like it, and returned it to the library. But I want to try again! Everyone seems to think so highly of his books.

Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

It was my first book from Vonnegut`s novels. People say - one either loves or hates Vonnegut. I think it may be true, but give him a second chance ;)
