A Place at the Table by Susan Rebecca White
I’ve only read 1 other Vonnegut, though I’ve been told to read some others, which are now on my reading list. I actually only picked up Cat’s Cradle because it had cat in the title (Talk about a stupid reason to pick up a book, right?) Well, it turned out good for me because I REALLY enjoyed this book, even more so than Slaughterhouse Five! It’s a tale about the end of the world, and I happen to enjoy books like that. It follows a guy who is a member of a strange religion that started on an island and is writing a book about the father of the hydrogen bomb. The book using some funny made-up words that have to do with the religion he follows, which Vonnegut half-explains the meanings of, and you come to understand what they mean as you read the book. I have a thing for stories that make up their own slang, it’s cute. (I overuse the word cute.)
I am looking forward to reading more of Vonnegut’s book now, especially after this one.
