    Armageddon in Retrospect PDF/EPUB ☆ Armageddon in armageddon mobile, retrospect epub, Armageddon in pdf, Armageddon in Retrospect ePUBWar is a funny thing That's what Vonnegut would have us believe He is right He also realizes that there is nothing funny about war It's a conflicting juxtaposition and yet it is true Armageddon in Retrospect sat in the to be read pile for a good long while I haven't read much Vonnegut since school when probably about 9 out of 10 Vonnegut readers read his work but I do enjoy reading him Nonetheless I dreaded this The title alone told me it would be dreary and the title for the most part didn't lie That's not to say Vonnegut doesn't bring the funny He almost always does however most of the stories compiled herein are about war often about his experiences in Dresden The bombing of Dresden in WWII was tragic As much as Vonnegut tries to spin some bitter sweet h

    Armageddon in Retrospect PDF/EPUB ☆ Armageddon in armageddon mobile, retrospect epub, Armageddon in pdf, Armageddon in Retrospect ePUBThere's a great introduction by Vonnegut's son the book is read by Rip Torn a favorite actor of mine It's pretty interesting The point of 'Sirens' as put forth by David in #18 seems to have been echoed by Vonnegut's son in a completely unrelated chat between the two shortly before Kurt's death It's worth reading if only for the introThe first story was a speech he gave in 2007 that seems to have set the tone The stories so far are OK but Vonnegut's Dresden horror stories made up most got a bit old He's very anti war continually points out it's stupid horrible There were a few 5 star stories that really put a face on the horr

    Armageddon in Retrospect PDF/EPUB ☆ Armageddon in armageddon mobile, retrospect epub, Armageddon in pdf, Armageddon in Retrospect ePUBVonnegut’s harrowing essay on the Dresden bombing “Wailing Shall Be in All Streets” is the highlight and centerpiece of this collection and one of the best works of anti war art I’ve read—something like the literary euivalent of Francisco Goya’s ‘Disasters of War’ series This previously unpublished work is undated but has the immediacy and urgency of an open wound Dresden was the last major German city to escape bombing because there was nothing combative about it; it was a city of hospitals and refugees Vonnegut who hated his Nazi captors nonetheless loved the city for its rich cultural past and pacific part in the war “In February 1945 American bombers reduced this treasure to crushed

    Armageddon in Retrospect PDF/EPUB ☆ Armageddon in armageddon mobile, retrospect epub, Armageddon in pdf, Armageddon in Retrospect ePUBAfter two somewhat disappointing books I finally picked up a book I’ve had since at least my birthday My experience with Kurt Vonnegut remains slimmer than I’d like with most of it locked away in adolescent memories now slipping beyond the horizon of my mind So it feels a little odd to be reading Armageddon in Retrospect theoretically his last work unless his estate publishes unpublished tidbits already But I did and I don’t regret it Clap me in irons if you mustI’m at a loss for what to say though For people who have read Vonnegut and know what to expect there is nothing much to add This is a bunch of stories written by Vonnegut They have that classic Vonnegut feel for language simple in syntax yet fiendish in semantics Most of them have something to do with war with World War II with the bombing of Dresden at every level Vonnegut examines the assumptions and rationalizations we attempt to internalize about the morality of conducting war Even the stories that are re

    Armageddon in Retrospect PDF/EPUB ☆ Armageddon in armageddon mobile, retrospect epub, Armageddon in pdf, Armageddon in Retrospect ePUBI finished Armageddon in Retrospect a few weeks ago It was really good I often wonder about works published posthumously particularly when the works had been kicking around for a while before the author diedDid the author want them to be published Is there a reason they weren't published while they were alive I graduated from Law School just over one year ago and it seems that in every different area of law there is a seminal case the first that you read for the first day of class because it is the first in the book In my Trusts and Estates class there was a case about Franz Kafka's will The will called for the burning of Kafka's papers up

    Armageddon in Retrospect PDF/EPUB ☆ Armageddon in armageddon mobile, retrospect epub, Armageddon in pdf, Armageddon in Retrospect ePUBI love this book because it offers so much it's a buffet of essays artistic sketches and short stories by a writer who managed to stay relevant and fresh into his late 80's Some may be skeptical of the uality of work because the book was collected and published posthumously but there's no need to fear that this is just another paycheck for the publisher Most of the contents stand up with the rest of Vonnegut's work which is to say he paints pictures here with words of a humorous horrible world that is eual parts tragedy and irony The book opens with an piece by Vonnegut's son and it's interesting to hear from someone so close to a literary giant talk about his father's processes troubles and idiosynchracies as a writer husband and father Of the collected tales within the time traveling tale Great Day and the self titled devil hunting Armageddon are probably my leas
