Happy Birthday Kurt Vonnegut
One of the famous American writers of the 20th century would have been celebrating his 89th birthday this year. Author of 14 novels and various other works, Kurt Vonnegut is famous for his satirical writing and his humanism.
Many of his novels have been produced as audio books. In fact the very first audio book I ever listened to was Slaughter House Five. Although back then it was a book on tape, not an audio book download! His time serving as a soldier in Dresden during World War II served as the inspiration behind this story. It is my favorite of his and I highly recommend that you listen to it if you haven’t already.
His works are still widely read and listened to today. The Twitter Book Club, 1book140 is celebrating Dead Authors this month and they have selected Slaughter House Five for November. Tweet with the hashtag #1book140 to join the discussion.
With so many great stories to choose from, what’s your favorite Vonnegut audio book?
