A Listmania! list by Paul
 
Breakfast of Champions: A Novel
1.  Breakfast of Champions: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "Vonnegut's funniest and, therefore, best. Probably what sets this one far above the others is his use of "artwork" throughout the novel."

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (470 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Cat's Cradle: A Novel
2.  Cat's Cradle: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (809 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Slaughterhouse-Five
3.  Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "Vonnegut's most famous book. The most interesting part of this book is the account of the bombing of Dresden, which Vonnegut was unfortunante to witness. Probably his most purposeful novel.A must read"
$5.99   Used & New from: $2.71

Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories
4.  Welcome to the Monkey House: Stories by Kurt Vonnegut

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (262 customer reviews)

Hocus Pocus
5.  Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "A very interesting novel. This is Vonnegut's most clear attempt at dealing with stupidity in the wealthy class as well as the Vietnam War. It stars a very unlikable character."
$7.19   Used & New from: $0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (105 customer reviews)

Fates Worse Than Death
6.  Fates Worse Than Death by Kurt Vonnegut

$13.24   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater: A Novel
7.  God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "The wealthy Mr. Rosewater attempts to help the less fortunate and is shunned by society for doing so. I enjoyed this book very much. Kilgore Trout also plays what I think is his best role."

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (167 customer reviews)

Timequake
8.  Timequake by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "This has nothing to do with his original idea for the book. It is simply Vonnegut talkin about this or that with a few quotes from Kilgore Trout. Very, very funny."
Used & New from: $0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (236 customer reviews)

Mother Night: A Novel
9.  Mother Night: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "Aside from Kilgore Trout, this novel stars my favorite Vonnegut character Howard Campbell. A very interesting story with surprising plot twists. This was Vonnegut's first non-Science Fiction work."
$12.97   Used & New from: $6.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (250 customer reviews)

The Sirens of Titan: A Novel
10.  The Sirens of Titan: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "If I liked Science Fiction more this would be a lot higher on my list. Sirens of Titan is a true testament to Vonnegut's ability to control a highly complex story. One of his best written."
$8.75   Used & New from: $6.35
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (492 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Jailbird: A Novel
11.  Jailbird: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "Although the main character in this book was interesting, this book didn't do much for me. Maybe it would have been more interesting if I didn't know who Sacco and Vinzetti were. A very political book"
$13.16   Used & New from: $2.08
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (84 customer reviews)

Slapstick or Lonesome No More!: A Novel
12.  Slapstick or Lonesome No More!: A Novel by Kurt Vonnegut

Bluebeard: A Novel (Delta Fiction)
13.  Bluebeard: A Novel (Delta Fiction) by Kurt Vonnegut
The list author says:
  "I wasn't too crazy about this one. It kept my interest, but I didn't think Rabo was a very interesting character (despite a very amazing life)... it had it's moments."
$12.50   Used & New from: $5.44
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (132 customer reviews)

Galapagos: A Novel (Delta Fiction)
14.  Galapagos: A Novel (Delta Fiction) by Kurt Vonnegut

3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (229 customer reviews)
