I just finished reading Timequake, by Kurt Vonnegut, and I liked it alot. I've also read Slaughterhouse-Five and God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian and loved both of those as well. So, I'm looking to either read another Vonnegut book, or read Catch 22, your suggestions? Three years ago, I tried to read Catch 22, after a friend reccomended it, but it was just too confusing to me. It seemed the author had spent all his energy making the story as complex as possible, as intricate as possible, as subtly ironic as possible, all in an effort to make the book very hard to read. I concluded that the author was a snobby prick who just wrote this intentionally difficult book so him and other intelectual snobs could look down at their noses at people who didn't get it. Three years ago, this book was like abstract art to me - I didn't get it and didn't care to get it. But that was three years ago, and with Kurt Vonnegut reccomending it towards the end of Timequake, I figured maybe I'll give Catch 22 another chance. Perhaps I'm closer to being an intellectual snob now than I was three years ago, but it just seems that it'd be appropriate for me to read that book considering the huge acclaim it's gotten. Ok, so I've bored you enough, the question is: Could you reccomend me a good Kurt Vonnegut book I haven't read, or would you reccomend I read Catch 22 instead for a change of pace?
