    I read this book all the way through on June 6 2007, in the lobby of the Executive West hotel in Louisville, KY while my husband took his radiology boards It was as if Kurt Vonnegut himself was seated beside me and had spe...

    This is Vonnegut s last in the trio of autobiographical collages, which is a canny way of presenting various nonfiction materials without having to impose a structure on the book This is the most shambolic of the three firstly, Fates Worse Than Death is divided into conventional chapters, so the reader has no contents table to peruse the various speeches Kurt reproduces here from recent public speaking events And the book is mostly reproduced public speeches, most of which are entertaining a This is Vonnegut s last in the trio of autobiographical collages, which is a canny way of presenting various nonfiction materials without having to impose a structure on the book This is the most shambolic of the three firstly, Fates Worse Than Death is divided into conventional chapters, so the reader has no contents table to peruse the various speeches Kurt reproduces here fro...

    I was first introduced to Vonnegut through his fiction, which is a good portion of what he s written And that those works are great he has some unique and interesting ideas, and he has the ability to wrap a funny, compelling, and meaningful story around them.I eventually stumbled upon the group of Vonnegut s publications, like this one, which feature him speaking in his own voice, presenting his experiences and ideas first hand And to me, that was so utterly refreshing Reading his fiction, I was first introduced to Vonnegut through his fiction, which is a good portion of what he s written And that those works are great he has some unique and interesting ideas, and he has the ability to wrap a funny, compelling, and meaningful story around them.I eventually stumbled upon the group of Vonnegut s publications, like this one, which feature him speaking in his own voice, presenting his experiences and ideas first hand And to me, that was so utterly refreshing Reading his fiction, you can just tell that there s a very interesting man behind the words Reading his thoughts unfiltered offers glimpse after glimpse into the life he lived But, when those thoughts themselves are somewhat lackluster, the reading experience loses a bit of it s appeal That s how I felt with this book In it, Vonnegut quotes a book that claims aging American humorists inevitabl...

    I love Vonnegut memoirs, and this one is right on par with Palm Sunday As someone interested in religion, I appreciated how directly Kurt addresses his own atheism sloppy Unitarianism, and what he perceives as the failures of Christianity It always surprises me how much I enjoy the perspectives of this smoky old curmudgeon This book was written at about the same time as his novel Hocus Pocus, which is one of his most negative and weakly written novels It ...

    It s one to dip into rather than read cover to cover A collection of essays and speeches unsurprisingly there is a bit of repetition But as with all Vonnegut what he says is worth hearing, warm, funny, bewildered and cynical yet hopeful Often in the same par...
