Vonnegut is known for his satire, his dry wit, and his ability to weave sentiment with detached cool. This set of three includes his most popular works, and provides a great introduction into the heart of one of our great Americans.
Start off with Cat’s Cradle, and bathe in the waters of Bokonism, a fictional religion that feels all too real. From there, enjoy the cutting commentary and vital philosophy of Slaughterhouse Five. There’s a reason it’s taught in high school and it’s not just because it’s funny. As for Welcome To The Monkey House, keep it in your pocket for when you need a boost. Its short stories provide similar wit and brilliance as Vonnegut’s novels, but in quick, easy 15-page increments.
