Hocus Pocus
Hocus Pocus

  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 12,96

5.0 von 5 Sternen Magically delicious, 29. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Hocus Pocus (Taschenbuch)
"HOCUS POCUS," is one of the best pure fiction books I've read in a while. Because the method that Kurt Vonnegut uses to encompass humor with fiction created a hilarious story of a man named Eugene Debs Hartke, a jazz player with the huge desire of becoming one of the best musicians ever accompanied by his band "The Soul Merchants." But never makes it thanks to his dad, a chemical engineer, who "needed something to boast and impress the simple minded neighbors." So Eugene got enrolled in the military and when he returns he comes with the nickname of the "Preacher" because he never swore or masturbated. He also found a job at Scipio's high school as a teacher, yet it didn't last for he got fired and as he was dying of tuberculosis he wrote 2 lists; one with all the names of all the women he had sex with and the second one with all the names of all the people he had hurt. I highly suggest this book to everyone because besides being funny, sad, and interesting it portrays how many of us got screwed by our parents decision.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very eccentric style, 29. April 2000
"SLAPSTICK OR LONESOME NO MORE," by Kurt Vonnegut is a great satirical and weird story of two ugly twins named Eliza Mellon Swain and Wilbur Rockefeller Swain, who after being parted by their parents and not seeing each other in a long time, went berserk in the reunion. Ironically, neither Eliza nor Wilbur were expected to be intelligent or live more than 14 years old, but who would say that Wilbur would turn out to be the president of the U.S.A. and meet with the king of Michigan. And that Eliza would die at the age of 50 in an avalanche on the outskirts of the chinese colony on the planet Mars. This is a great story put into a bizarre way because "it's the closest thing that Vonnegut will ever come to an autobiography and the way he feels towards life."
