If you do something good while promoting something really awful (like the Holocaust), does that make you a good or a bad person and how do you live with yourself afterwards. There definitely are some lessons there for our current era but I didn't find myself moved by the account as much as I had expected.
interesting read about a man that did some terrible things that he knew were wrong but apparently for a good reason. so are we what we think or what we say and do?
The fictional memoirs of an American awaiting trial in Israel for broadcasting Nazi propaganda to his countrymen from Germany during World War II. Unbeknownst to his accusers, his broadcasts actually contained coded Allied communications as part of the US war effort. What makes this not just another spy novel—filled with plot twists and adventure though it is—is the subtle, sarcastic humour afforded by Vonnegut’s uniquely dry, detached, and simple style of writing.
THis book is one of those that is hard to put down. A funny, but thought provoking satire, I couldnt help but take away the idea that nothing in this life is as simple as it seems. When we pretend to be someone else, we come dangerously close to loosing who we really are. In the end the only one who can ever really judge us and decide our fate, is ourselves. Truly a great book.
