When asked which is my all-time favourite novel - a tricky question - I often end up pointing to Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five. It's a powerful piece of writing which experiments with the novel form and, apart from being very entertaining, highlights the stupidity of war. I won't rave on too much here, because I probably have in the past and, besides, whatever I say wouldn't do justice to it.
Anyway, having recently re-read it, I thought it was high time I picked up something else by Vonnegut and so plumped for Cat's Cradle. It's a quick and enjoyable read. Doesn't knock Slaughterhouse-Five from its lofty position, but certainly shares some of its wonderful quirkiness. And will bounce me towards reading another Vonnegut. Any suggestions?
