Last week, using the hashtag #bestvonnegut we asked our extremely well-read Twitter followers what their favorite Kurt Vonnegut book is, and they responded in a big way. The winner is…
Slaughterhouse-Five, with 28% of the vote. The result makes sense since SH5 is probably Vonnnegut’s most-read and most famous book (and we also put it as the #1 book that inspires the most tattoos). Second place was very close, with Breakfast of Champions just edging The Sirens of Titan. User “jen johnson” had this to say about her pick: “You never forget a first love. Breakfast of Champions.
#myfirstvonnegut is the #bestvonnegut!”
