Hocus Pocus | Kurt Vonnegut
78 posts | 47 read | 55 to read
From the author of Timequake, this "irresistible" novel (Cleveland Plain Dealer) tells the story of Eugene Debs Hartke-Vietnam veteran, jazz pianist, college professor, and prognosticator of the apocalypse. It's "Vonnegut's best novel in years-funny and prophetic...something special." (The Nation)

Okay, all this book shopping is starting to read like lifestyle porn, so I think I'll reign it in for a while after this.

Anyway, had a special coupon for B&N that expired today, so I used it to buy, among other things, my 10th Vonnegut novel (miscounted before the last post, I'm still 4 short of all the novels).

I read a lot of fantasy so almost any of my books could work but I decided to focus on a few with #magical titles by some favourite authors. I‘ve read all of these multiple times except Hocus Pocus which is still tbr. #LiteraryLuck

You really had to pay attention to what was going on but it was great! I literally bought it for the title but it did not disappoint. Highly recommend.

@Gissy really spoiled me for our #hocuspocusswap! I love everything you sent! I've been dying to read all of these books and I love all of the Hocus Pocus specific things (especially the mug, I can't wait to show it to my students!). On top of all that I love Puerto Rico so the local things you sent were so appreciated! Thank you so very much for the effort you put into all of this!

Gissy So happy you liked everything! I bought a mug for me too! We were lucky because I wanted to buy another one for my other match and they are sold out😢 13mo

@Kayla.Adriena I promise I have not peaked, but this is the state in which my package for the #hocuspocusswap arrived! 😅 Apparently the post was very eager to get this one delivered. Lol!

Kayla.Adriena Omg! I think I went wrong in reusing such a large Amazon box, now I know why people send smaller multiple boxes! It'll be a miracle if nothing was ruined! 13mo

@JamieLou - I‘m hoping it won‘t make a difference but I‘m shipping your package tomorrow because one piece decided not to be delivered til today even though I ordered it over a week ago and I really don‘t want to send without it! But, I think if I get it out first thing tomorrow, you will@still have it well before he 13th. I‘ll see if I can expedite shipping too! Just wanted to let you know 😊

Victoriahoperose @JamieLou the post office said it should still get there by this Friday 😌 13mo
JamieLou @Victoriahoperose hey there! I don‘t know why I didn‘t see this before. No worries here, I‘m a little behind too (everything I ordered just got out for delivery today 😬) but I‘m shipping yours 2 Day Priority so it will be there in time! 😊 13mo

madamereadsalot1 Lol! Oh gosh, mine is probably nothing comparatively! I hope I don't disappoint. 😅 I also didn't write any of the fun stuff on it. Because my brain didn't think to do that. I'm leaving for a business trip tomorrow and all I can think about is how unprepared I am for that. Ha! 14mo

I love Kurt. He had a way with words. I like to believe he was clairvoyant since most of the social commentary still holds up.

OrangeMooseReads @ValerieAndBooks lol that one is on my TBR. I‘m slowly working my way through all of Vonnegut‘s works. 2y
britt_brooke @OrangeMooseReads Agree. His books totally transcend time! I‘m working my way through, too. I have 2 novels left - Player Piano and Jailbird, plus I think a couple of his short stories collections. 2y
OrangeMooseReads @britt_brooke I still have several to go, I get sidetracked by other books lol. Jailbird is good, haven‘t read Player Piano yet. 2y

2. I'm planning to start my #lmpbc selection...just waiting on its arrival! 📦
3. Milk chocolate...all the way! 🍫
4. Yes, but nothing major: seasonal allergies, cats...very manageable stuff.

Not for me. This actual story is a bit spastic and then his attempts to be funny in the beginning were funny, but then it turned into trying too hard. This was my first Vonnegut and I will try another eventually. I only got through 15 of 40 chapters and felt like it was a worthy attempt.

"How embarrassing to be human."

Dark social satire set in martial-law America where prisons are "color-coded" and the Japanese own nearly everything. Basic takeaway: humans are still stupid and ruining the planet. History repeats itself. Bleak, but funny. Plus, there's a brief Kilgore Trout appearance.

minkyb Excellent summary! 3y
