My sister found another piece to the Vonnegut mystery. He died due to injuries sustained from falling down the stairs. In Timequake he noted that his sister found it hillarious when people fell down the stairs and he laughed a couple times at people falling, too. Interesting...
Check it out: Kilgore Trout died, according to "Timequake" when he was 84. Kurt Vonnegut Jr. died when he had reached the ripe old age of..... 84. Earlier on in his life, in the 1980's or something, he had apparently tried to take his own life. Death at the same age of his alter-ego a coincidence or Vonnegut-esque suicide?
The Erikson Sister's Epiphany of the Day
Excellent review! I am not opposed to being sad throughout a read. And I completely agree that "skipping" is a totally acceptable form of speed reading. That being said, the book has now been moved to the "I will read it soon" column and I am pretty excited about getting to it. Thanks!
