    Why read Vonnegut when you can read Pynchon?

      for the same reason I enjoy both cheese and pepperoni pizza. enjoy your boring monolife, don't let the casket shut over your head and give you a lick of sense but too late.

      I don't like the posts in general, but at least Vonnegut makes me laugh.

        Pynchon is me when I'm high and Vonnegut is me when I'm drunk. I don't know who's me when I'm high AND drunk. Probably Jesus.

      This merely speaks to his success as a writer, that he was able to penetrate the consciousness of a largely non-reading public with a single phrase that is clearly meaningful to many people whether your stinky elitist (ie insecure) attitude likes to look down on it or not.

      I should think IQfy would be overjoyed at a demonstration of literary resonance, but know too well from posting here lately that you are all miserable, small minds hell-bent on being superior in any available sense to any particular person.

      You have a small soul.

        I'm sorry anon, if you want to have anything to do with something that shallow b***hes impulsively engrave on themselves and post online for clout from other shallow b***hes, that's just pure homosexualry and you should be ashamed of yourself.

        You have a gaping hole.

        So according to you JK Rowling and Stephen King are the greatest writers because their SOULS are so BIG to accommodate such a LARGE readerbase. Boy you need to face reality for once in your life and realize most people in the world are such morons that it’s a GOOD thing they’re incapable of understanding anything truly great by design. If they don’t read Joyce or Pynchon that much as Stephen King, then all the better—they don’t deserve to.

          You are talking to yourself entirely. You are lost and making things up. I never mentioned anything about these persons. My favorite writers are Ralph Waldo Emerson and William Blake. I have never read Stephen King or JK Rowling. I think, whatever cardboard cutout you are biting at, is in fact you.

          how is it surprising that people get tattoos associated with books which they find meaningful? what is the point of collecting these? To feel some sense of superiority? Very weird behavior.

    I read him a lot in highschool. I think he's the perfect bridge for young men into real literature and nothing more. His books are formulaic (and he thought that was a good thing) and if you've read one or two you'll feel like you've read them all when you keep going.

      I feel this way about Bukowski. Bukowski introduced me to Celine, Hamsun, and to a lesser degree Kafka and Dostoevesky. I'm still grateful for that.

    Redditors and anons would both change their opinions of him if they realize how pessimistic he is.

    probably some eceleb has a pet peeve against him and all their mindless followers picked it up, then Vonnegut hate spread like a virus among the terminally online.

    I would say Vonnegut is the bridge into "capital L Literature."
    >prose simple enough for a middle schooler to understand
    >plotlines are always zany to keep plot-based readers engaged
    >generally only tackles the biggest overaching concepts humans deal with: death, love, man's lack of control
    >ironic and humorous (most people say this though I've never found him super funny)
    >each of his novels is pretty formulaic
    Vonnegut is what I'd give a person between them reading Lord of the Flies and 1984. He's still an enoyable read at any age but he won't be a very compelling read for somebody who's already read a lot of literature.

      I read 1984 in 6th grade, and Slaughterhouse-Five in junior year of high school. I preferred Vonnegut.

      It's a trenchant, gallows humor sort of funny.
