Themes from Breakfast of Champions

Breakfast of Champions, by Kurt Vonnegut 9/10, his trademark absurdist satire at its finest, or almost its finest. I think every writer is tempted at one point or another to put himself (or herself) into his work. Once you reach a certain point in your writing career, you realize that this (a) has been done before; (b) is really hard to do well; (c) is fairly self-indulgent. Vonnegut, here, demonstrates a rare instance in which it is done well, and…

Review Breakfast of Champions

Where do I even start with this book? First of all, Vonnegut has an amazing way with words. That s what keeps me coming back again and again. He can make the most mundane thing not only interesting, but the funniest thing you ve ever read. Speaking of that, there s quite the exposition on beaversand not the one who makes dams. It s really hard to explain this book. The actual story that s told could probably be told in a single long-ish paragraph…

NEW HAVEN > Standing at the podium beside towering, all-state players — New Canaan’s Zach Allen and Southington’s Jasen Rose — Shelton quarterback Mark Piccirillo gave himself zero chance of winning the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award.

Oatmeal is a breakfast favorite, and for good reason: It helps curb appetite (keeping you full until lunch), decreases risk for both colon cancer and high cholesterol and is incredibly easy to whip up in the morning. You may be accustomed to spooning up a hearty dish of sweet oats, topped with raisins, brown sugar, maple syrup or fruit. But oats neutral taste makes a prime canvas for more inventive flavor pairings. Savory oats - svoats, if you will…

When we first started raising chickens, I read a few books and began a regiment of chick feed for the little ones, moving on to…

Important quotes from Breakfast of Champions

It seems incredibly melodramatic to say that a book has changed my life. It’s the kind of statement that, coming from the mouth of someone else, would make me roll my eyes and say something sarcastic like, “Please tell me more about your spiritual journey, bro.” Yet just the same, Kurt Vonnegut’s masterpiece, really did change my life. It’s the story of one of Vonnegut’s more famous characters, science fiction author Kilgore Trout, and the car salesmen…

Breakfast of Champions – Kurt Vonnegut There are a hell of alot of interesting things going on in Breakfast of Champions : a distinctive authorial style that challenges fictional conventions, insightful social commentary, and an exploration of the relationship between fiction and determinism.
