[Kurt Vonnegut Jr.] Read Timeuake epub – nikeuktrainers.co.uk


Another fun rambling visit with cantankerous old Uncle Kurt As with most of his works it is not so much old Uncle Kurt As with most of his works it is not so much he writes as how he writes it He is funny He is amusing and entertaining Here s the thing It s about a timeuake where the world oes back 10 years and everyone and everything re lives the past ten years all over again Listen Kurt is too slick this is an allegory about how our society will re live our past history will repeat itself because we are too stupid and apathetic to make a change Imagine All that and Kilgore Trout Loved it In real life as in Grand Opera arias only make hopeless situations worse Kurt Vonnegut Jr TimeuakeTimeuake was one of the first books MY WIFE EVER GAVE ME I DON T KNOW wife ever ave me I don t know it took me so long to read I WAS a huge fan of Vonnegut 20 years ago when we first so long to read I WAS a huge fan of Vonnegut 20 years ago when we first married and I loved my wife Clearly I at age 23 I wasn t a fan of Vonnegut enough or trusted my wife s taste in books enough I think I was just fearful Vonnegut was just mailing a final novel in This was one of the last things he published and I think it was his last novel I might check this and find out I was wrong it happens Anyway I think all three of us were right My wife was beautifully right in buying me Kurt Vonnegut Kurt Vonnegut was right in writing it I was right in waiting I wasn t ready for thi Well I just read Galapagos one of Vonnegut s finest novels and Timeuake is not in that club I as with most Vonnegut fans am perfectly content reading Vonnegut write about the phone book or fleas or jazz His rambling is like music to our ears But this book is not one of the best of his books Not the best or most original rambling from him Though one occasion for the book becomes the death of Kurt s dear brother Bernard One attraction here is that both uys are science Dancing with Mr. Darcy guys who are funny Well Timuake meanders from topic to topic and isn t really a novel it s a series of reflections and one liners but I still was mildly entertained maybe 25 and here s some stuff I likedOn play and invention Listen We are here on Earth to fart around Don t let anybody tell you any different On books I am eternallyrateful for my knack of finding in Lesca great books some of them very funny books reason enough to feel honored to be alive no matter what else might beoing on But by accident not by cunning calculation books because of their weight and texture and because of their sweetly token resistance to manipulation involve our hands and eyes and then our minds and souls in a spiritual adventure I would be very sorry for my randchildren not to know about On bombs Andrei Sakharov won his Nobel in 1975 for demanding a halt to the testing of nuclear weapons He of course had already tested his His wife was a pediatrician What sort of person could perfect a hydrogen bomb while married to a child care specialist What sort of physician would stay married to a mate that crackedAnything interesting happen at work today honeybunchYes My bomb is oing to work just reat And how are you doing with that kid with chicken pox On the human race s apparent desire to commit collective suicide So it is not one whit mysterious that we poison the water and air and topsoil and construct ever cunning doomsday devices both industrial and military Let us be perfectly frank for a change For practically everybody the end of the world can t come soon enough On euality and democracy and Eugene Debs I still uote Eugene Debs 1855 1926 late of Terre Haute Indiana five times the Socialist Party s candidate for President in every speech While there is a lower class I am in it while there is a criminal element I am of it while there is a soul in prison I am not free In recent years I ve found it prudent to say before uoting Debs that he is to be taken seriously Otherwise many in the audience will start to laugh They are being nice not mean knowing I like to be funny But it is also a sign of these times that such a moving echo of the Sermon on the Mount can be perceived as outdated wholly discredited horsecrap Which it is not Timeless Impression If this isn t nice what isKiss Me AgainBy Kilgore TroutSome people think that science fiction doesn t ive an author much opportunity to write about herself Whether or not this is true I thought I might tell you a little about my family if not much about me and my role in itBefore I start I should warn you that I do not propose to discuss my love life Not that there s much to tell you about anywayThat said I still can t et over how women are shaped especially their butts and boobs Dicks are nothing in comparison be. Kurt Vonnegut este fara indoiala unul dintre cei mai mari scriitori americani Graham GreeneCand un cutremur de timp arunca intreaga omenire cu zece ani in urma pamantenii se vad nevoiti sa si retraiasca fara a putea schimba nimic ultimii ani din viata incepand de la 17 februarie 1991 Ideea ii apartine batranului scriitor de science fiction Kilgore Trout alter ego al autorului ale carui povestiri impanzesc naratiunea venind in completarea eveniment. Timeuake

His views and interactions with said alter ego Timeuake veers toward autobiography than novel And for Vonnegut this works Though the timeuake is a frame for Kilgore and Vonnegut this device made me think about how I would react to one of these timeuakes starting with 1991 to 2001 Even with so much to look forward to could I be happy knowing all that would happen in the rewind Would any rewind really be satisfying The conceit be happy knowing all that would happen in the rewind Would any rewind really be satisfying The conceit people have free will is explored when the timeuake ends and don t really seem to exercise free will Even though Kilgore Trout doesn t believe in free will like a Paul Revere of the space time continuum he announces its return It s an interesting image that allows Vonnegut to enter into a dialogue with American patriot Trout about free will and humanity Even interesting it feels like you are witnessing the last words of both men s long cantankerous lives or a moving on as both men wave farewell to who and what had been important to them And then there is the clambake at the end of the journey I especially recommend this novel to fans of Kilgore Trout This is a satisfying entertaining and thought provoking novel 425 stars In real life as in rand opera arias only make hopeless situations worse Timeuake Kurt Vonnegut Timeuake is a semi autobiographical work by Kurt Vonnegut Jr published in 1997 Marketed as a novel the book was described as a stew by Vonnegut in which he summarizes a novel he had been struggling with for a number of years Kilgore Trout serves again as the main character who the author declares as having died in 2001 at the fictitious Xanadu retreat in Rhode Island Vonnegut explains in the beginning of the book that he was not satisfied with the original version of Timeuake he wrote Taking parts of Timeuake One and combining it with personal thoughts and anecdotes produced the finished product so called Timeuake Two Many of the anecdotes deal with Vonnegut s family the death of loved ones and people s last words 2004 1382 282 9649937011 1385 281 1388 1395 20 1384 312 9648497389 1393 250 9786005687347 1395 1398 1397 320 9786008460558 2001 1991 2001 1997 1942 1995 1975 1975 1987 1975 This is an odd mix of fiction and autobiography Narrated by the author himself who is not fictional while relying on stories and uotations from the old science fiction author Kilgore Trout who is There are fake stories true stories and all of them will tell you something about being human in all its terrible lory Extenuating circumstance to be mentioned on Judgment Day We I m suprised that I found some of Vonnegut s later less talked about books as enjoyable as some of the classic ones But I enjoyed Bluebeard Hocus Pocus and Timeuake just as much as Slaughterhouse 5 Cat s Cradle Mother Night or Breakfast of Champions Even though this technically isn t the last Vonnegut work it s obvious that he was thinking of it as his swan song in fiction and it s a near perfect farewell I hate to say this because I love Vonnegut Cat s Crade and Slaughterhouse were pure enuis satire at it s best I also liked Sirens and Breakfast of Champions even though they were not of the calibre of his best works However I am starting to fear that most of his other books are a waste of time I think people read them only because they love Vonnegut and they desperately want to experience again the simple delight of discovering books that can shake you and engulf you I did not enjoy Vonnegut s short stories much as I wanted to and I had to Babys First Christmas (Christmas Is For Kids) (Christmas Is For Kids) (Harlequin American Romances, 754) give up on Timeuake That s right Put it to rest before completing it At some point in his life Vonnegut appears to have stumbled upon a formula a superbly uirky and poignent style and a set of peculiar characters too along Miserably pathetic Ups, Kita Sudah Menikah? gloriously mournful wonderous people dredging through the absurdities of life But it is still sorely disappointing when you see the same themes and characters repeated in his other books Thinly veiled these books are suspiciously like rejected drafts of his successful novels or tired attempts to re create magic Something interesting I noticed in Timeuake was Vonnegut s very 1950s view of women and his hand waving simplification of their personalities and desires This was only alluded to in his other books but starkly stated in Timeuake I don t think he intended to be chauvinistic or mean as he appears to have been a nice and sweet man in real life But it was too late Already jaded at this pivotal juncture in Timeuake I could now put it down withood reason And shake my head Oh Kurt Tsk tsk Rest in peace and thanks for the cat.

Lieve meThat s enough about Let s talk about my parents Both my father and my mother were criminals though only my father went to about my parents Both my father and my mother were criminals though only my father went to My mother s only crime was to let my father ejaculate in her birth canal I don t know how many times this happened but I assume that I am the product of one occasionLikewise my father only committed one crime though unlike my mother he didn t repeat it My father shot my mother when I was only twelve years old I don t know why or whether it had anything to do with my age at the time My randparents bless them thought of me as a precocious and slightly annoying child But that s no reason for your father to kill your mother Procreation isn t meant to be a crime between husband and wife They can t Send You To Jail you to jail because you re infected with progenyMy father was the famous ornithologist Professor Raymond Trout of Smith College in Northampton Massachusetts My mother was a housewife and therefore less famous than my father until her death and perhaps even then However I only discovered when I turned eighteen that she was also a poet I didn t learn this from my father I learned it from my mother s sister my aunt to whom my mother had entrusted all her verse She used to send each poem off to my aunt whenever she wrote a letter to her Why she sent them to my aunt I don t know because she never finished school and absolutely hated poetry like most normal people So she never kept the poems my mother sent herShe did remember one of her poems though when I asked herWoman or notYou ll notice itBeing alive is A crock of shitIt mightn t amount to a hill of beans as far as poetry oes but you have to agree with the sentiment especially having regard to the cause of her demiseOh I almost forgot to tell you my mother was beautiful as well Before he shot her my father was always trying to kiss her and take her off to their bedroom Most often she would put me in my bed and kiss me on the forehead so that I d Baby Legacy (So Many Babies go to sleep first Sometimes she diggle like one of the irls at school and o in with my father straight away Sometimes she turned away and ignored him which made him angry though I didn t realise he d Langlais correct pour les Nuls get so angry he d want to shoot her What is it about women that makes men want to kill them Men are jerks Women are psychotic I supposeWhen I asked my aunt why she thought my father had killed my mother she replied There is no way a beautiful woman can live up to what she looks like for any appreciable length of time She might have been right Anyway it still makes me sad that my mother will never kiss me againKurt Vonnegut on Kilgore Trout That is what Kilgore Trout was too in all he wroteaily mournfulSOUNDTRACKview spoilerDavid Kilgour You Forget Clean Anything Could Happen hide spoiler I ve not read a lot of Mr Vonnegut s worksjust those assigned in class and I will have to read those again to remind myself of their points and purposesMeanwhile this one Timeuake seems like a big wrap up to all the things he might have wanted to say in a book but hadn t yet I had a difficult time holding on to the thread of this tale but every once in awhile a phrase or sentence stands alone in the body of the text and feels very amusing and out of place Like the time you were at a funeral and saw something funny and wanted to share it with the person next to you and laugh out loud but no It s a funeral This is certainly a book that definitely left me with the feeling that I do not have as Constantly Craving good arip on what I think I know as much as I think I do OR I m brilliant to recognize the absurdity herein Meh Who knowsFor that level of untetheredness I can t o beyond 3 stars and that still is me on the fence Many people need desperately to receive this message I feel and think much as you do care about many of the things you care about although most people do not care about them You are not alone I was intrigued by the concept of Kurt Vonnegut s last novel a timeuake beginning on February 13 2001 rewinds the clock back to 1991 It s maddening of course Everyone must live those years again exactly as they d done before all the while knowing what will happen but unable to change anything When people o from living in a continuous state of deja vu to being able to exercise free will things o even further off the rails like pileups at the bottom of the escalator Front and center in this novel is Vonnegut s alter ego Kilgore Trout as well as Vonnegut himself who narrates the book With Vonnegut providing specific and often poignant details about his life family and relationships as well as.
