On April the 11th Kurt Vonnegut died, one of my favourite authors. He wrote amazing books and short stories, like Breakfast of Champions and Slaughterhouse Five. I remember the first time I read Slaughterhouse Five, it amazed me and surprised me. One of the few books I read and came out thinking that it really had some effect on things, it really made me think and was overall just amazing. It is a shame to think that he will no longer be making any more books, luckily I got to see him talk once when he was in Seattle a while ago. It was his last tour through the region I think.
His dark humour and beautiful writing style were always a pleasure to read. So it goes.
