All saidOf course I was scandalized by Vonnegut s crudeness but thought I had to make a mature dent in such books ones my parents mature generation ven ndorsed so reading Vonnegut ushered me into an oddly skewed adult worldMost of the jokes I didn t get for I was a teen with no political savvy But then again Woodstock was fanatically dear to my teen peers so I fell in with a bandwagon of countercultural political leaningOf course later combining leftist sentiment with conservative morality I couldn t see the Mack Truck Barrelling in my direction in the rear view blind spot that was my nonexistent and a little autistic perspicuity But that s my historyBy the time I read Eliot Rosewater s story I could still laugh thanks to my then mid teen sister s youthful giggling presence in my life but it was after my accident so Mr Rosewater was for me a bitterly sardonic type of laughSchool of Hard Knocks anyone Just leave your reasoning at the doorThat s why I was VERY happy today to read my good friend Brian s review here because he showed me a reason for joy in this book which I thought joyless You see I never knew black humour in my life because like Norman Peale I ve always tried to see goodness in those around meAnd also just like Eliot Rosewater I was the cynics whipping boySo when Brian resurrected Eliot from the depths of my depressive reaction to this novel and showed the outright godliness in Mr Rosewater s altruistic demeanour I was overjoyedBecause Brian you have rescued Eliot s reputation for meAnd my warped understanding of this book Which was always threatened by an incipient cloud of despair over my shared fallen humanity As Brian so skilfully shows was never this great author s intention Hello babies Welcome to Earth It s hot in the summer and cold in the winter It s round and wet and crowded At the outside babies you ve got about a hundred years here There s only one rule that I know of babies God damn it you ve got to be kind Kurt Vonnegut God Bless You Mr RosewaterI ve only got two big rules with my two babies one boy one girl 1 be happy 2 be kind Everything lse is negotable It appears that Kurt Vonnegut independently arrived at the same conclusion God Bless You Mr Rosewater happens to be a fairly straight forward novel about money and charity Vonnegut s novel also known as Pearls before Swine is about the Rosewater family and how they invest their Flori în păr efforts into a foundation He really terrific things which are happening today Money does not drive Mr Rosewater or the corrupt lawyer who tries to shape the Rosewater fortune so much as outrage at the human condition The novel was adapted for a 1979 Alan Menken musical The novel is told mostly thru a collection of short stories dealing with Eliot's interactions with the citizens of Rosewater County usually with the last sentence serving as a punch line The antagonist's tale Mushari's is told in a similar shortssay fashion The stories reveal different hypocrisies of humankind in a darkly humorous fashio.
One of the outright funny novels by Vonnegut God Bless You Mr Rosewater is a scathing social satire about greed hypocrisy and good though misshapen intentions One of the most starkly telling scenes for me is near the Kansas State end when Elliot has taken up tennis and lost all the weight and it is as though he has awakened from a long sleepFirst published in 1965 Vonnegut shares the story of Eliot Rosewater an heir to a richstate who is restless and looks to find his way amid various philanthropic misadventures helping the poor becoming a volunteer firefighter Sexy Cosplay Anime Girls (Bikini, Military, Scifi Costume, Japanese Import, Asian Babe, Picture Book) (Xena Kai Book 3) etc As a story Vonnegut is his usual hilarious self letting his character as narrator drop several times and revealing personal asides Beneath the surface the author conveys an allegory abou I read this veryxcitingly to record a podcast Humiliated Husband episode with AS King There were so many laugh out loud lines or profound lines that I actuallynded up reading 80% of this book out loud to my boyfriend I loved the main character and I think I ll be thinking about the money river for the rest of my life Kurt Vonnegut s God Bless You Mr Rosewater or Pearls Before Swine looks at a man with nearly unlimited money Eliot Rosewater who wants to help the poor but often seems out of touch ccentric or downright insane There is a cartoon strip with this novel s subtitle Pearls Before Swine Like Vonnegut s own writing this comic strip offers dark humor crazy characters and lots of social commentary I m not positive Stephan Pastis the creator took the name of his comic strip from Vonnegut s title however it makes for an interesting comparison While Vonnegut doesn t appear in his novels his alter gos most certainly do Partially based on a fellow writer but also undoubtedly Vonnegut himself one of my favorite characters Kilgore Trout makes his first appearance in a Vonnegut novel Likewise In Pearls Before Swine Stephas Pastis provides commentary in his own appearances Something I Little Slave else worth mentioning Eliot Rosewater s sporadic attempts to do good don t offer much of a plot but again like the comic strip his actions are replete with social commentary Maybe could be said about the two but I llnd the comparison there In time almost all men and women will become worthless as producers of goods food services and machines as sources of practical ideas in the areas of The Stall (Pony In Training economicsngineering and probably medicine too So if we can t find reasons and methods for treasuring Second only to Slaughterhouse Five of Vonnegut's canon in its prominence and influence God Bless You Mr Rosewater 1965 presents Eliot Rosewater an itinerant semi crazed millionaire wandering the country in search of heritage and philanthropic outcome introducing the science fiction writer Kilgore Trout to the world and Vonnegut to the collegiate audience which would soon make him a cult writerTrout modeled according to Vonnegut on the science fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon with whom Vonnegut had an occasional relationship is a desperate impoverished but visionary hack writer
