    PDF Kurt Vonnegut Jr. ñ Hocus Pocus MOBI Ç ñ hocus book, pocus kindle, Hocus Pocus ePUBThere are a couple of authors who aimlessly write sometimes attaching all this drivel to one profound emblematic theme None of that with Vonnegut who writes about the Vietnam War like no one else with the courage to mix in futuristic and antiuarian events all fictional but lifelike as well as merging composite psyches with individual personal histories He has a beating heart and it beats louder and faster with a warlike violence and even often with a human tenderness as Vonnegut attempts to externalize all of his thoughts on this most miser

    PDF Kurt Vonnegut Jr. ñ Hocus Pocus MOBI Ç ñ hocus book, pocus kindle, Hocus Pocus ePUBHocus Pocus is the story of Eugene Debs Hartke a Vietnam veteran who after leaving the Army became a teacher at a private school and then a prison After a prison break he is mistaken for one of the ring leaders and ends up awaiting trial dying of TB contemplating his life and trying to count the number of women he has slept withIn itself that would make a good basis for an ordinary book but as this is a novel written by Kurt Vonnegut the basic story has little to do with making this one of the final greats of the late 20th CenturyIn fact describing it as a novel may be pushing it at all As all you fine creative

    PDF Kurt Vonnegut Jr. ñ Hocus Pocus MOBI Ç ñ hocus book, pocus kindle, Hocus Pocus ePUBThe truth can be very funny in an awful way especially as it relates to greed and hypocrisyIn many ways this is about hypocrisy and deception and so is one of Vonnegut’s most scathingly cynical and satirical works and yet his scorn here is subtle though rarely playful as he can be and has demonstrated in other novels This most reminded me of his 1979 novel Jailbird We have another unreliable narrator but this is Vonnegut and so situational irony and complexity spice the topsy turvy perspective We have a protagonist nicknamed “The Preacher” who does not curse and yet is a killer and serial adulterer The title “Hocus Pocus” comes from the idea that words are like magic creating illusions that can cast spells and create misinformation and can conjure up the idea of a good result when the opposite is actually trueAn observant reader of Kurt Vonnegut will note that imp
