Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Deadeye Dick - Kurt Vonnegut Rudy Waltz is Deadeye Dick. Deadeye Dick was a double murderer before he hit puberty. Rudy wants to be a writer. His father, a failed artist, tells him to become a pharmacist instead. So he does. His mother is a rich heiress. Neither have ever made a meal in their entire lives. Rudy knows more about the servants in the house than he does his parents. He uses their songs to sing away the blues.This isn't my favorite ever Vonnegut, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. Rudy was an awesome narrator. As I always say in Vonnegut reviews, he's just a genius, and all of his books are really worth the read.
