Breakfast of Champions

It's Kris Kindle time of year. Which is Secret Santa to some of you and Amigo oculto to my good friends in Brazil.

I decided to go with a book this year and the one I chose is Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut. It's for a guy I work with who loves Sci-Fi and old fashioned horror films. I thought this book would suit him down to the ground due to it's surreal nature.

It's the strange story of Kilgore Trout a Sci-fi writer and Kilgore Trout, a depressed car salesman. I've read it twice and to be honest you can't really summarise it. Well I can't. I can just say it is surreal, weird wonderfully written and shows you many side to human nature.

For me it is one of Vonnegut's Best. Enjoy
