I don’t know where to start with Kurt Vonnegut.
He was by far the most influential writer in my life and I read every single one of his books as a teenager.
Being knowledgeable about his work gets me laid to this day.
The creativity and storytelling of this man has not been surpassed and his understanding view on life, women, nature, and human relationships will skyrocket your interactions with everyone (especially girls).
Breakfast of Champions is more of an outlook on life, a critique of American culture, and a way of looking at the truth than a novel. The plot doesn’t matter, its the completely original observations that will have you thinking.
All of Vonnegut’s novels are connected in some way, whether it be themes or recurring characters. When you read him, pay attention, make connections, and laugh your fucking ass off.
I would recommend every book of his (especially his non-fiction) with the exception of Player Piano–he wasn’t quite there yet as a writer for that one.
Start with this one, its a good introduction to a brilliant writer.
