>Timequake – Kurt Vonnegut

>By his design, his last book. The story itself isn’t much, mainly focussed on time travelling back 10 years and seeing your life again. But the story isn’t important. Vonnegut re-wrote the chapters here many times and you can understand why. He wanted this to be his last book and he had much to say, to say it once and then be at peace. It’s mainly a book of recollection, nostalgia, jokes and laments over his life, work, friends and family. there are some pertinent remarks here over how society has changed but mostly its the wisdom and turn of phrase that stands out. A melancholic book from a man who saw much.
