Breakfast of Champions Best book you've ever read: Breakfast of Champions

    Every time I pick up Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., I have a fabulously fun time reading it.

    I particularly enjoy Vonnegut's writing of himself into the book toward the end, when he revels in the fact that he is authoring the book, therefore the characters do what he chooses them to do; However, they have developed a sense of autonomy such that the story keeps unfolding without his prompting or control.

    Of course, the drawings are fun, too. Especially the asshole.

    Breakfast of Champions is fabulous! Also Cat's Cradle and God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater.

    Breakfast of champions is probably my favorite book ever. It intelligently makes fun of everything and has some well drawn charactors. Is that movie coming out, or is it gonna be a crappy tv thing. It's too bad they made it. All of the good humor and voice of the book will be lost in a movie.

    This is one of the most sparkling examples of existentialist writing. When I lend this book out to people, without fail, they complain that the book is anticlimactic. It's the inconsequence of the meeting between Kilgore Trout and Dwayne Hoover that belies the very message of the work: Nobody is watching you. Nobody is making sure that things will work out O.K. Sometimes, when stuff happens, it doesn't mean anything - move on and make the best.
