Kurt Vonnegut died yesterday, and I just wanted to say he was awesome.
You're awesome, Kurt!
Slaughterhouse Five is a lot of people's favorite book, and there are others who prefer Cat's Cradle, but the first Vonnegut book I read was Breakfast of Champions, and I think that will always be my personal favorite. Although there's something about Sirens of Titan that I really enjoyed. And Galapagos.
I read everything he wrote. He had a huge impact on me in high school, and was one of the main reasons I got into writing. So, thanks a lot, Kurt Vonnegut!
