    In celebration of his 50th birthday, Kurt Vonnegut wrote a book to himself as a present which is mentioned by Vonnegut in the preface of the book. The name of this book is Breakfast of Champions. This book is primarily about the meeting between a car dealer named Dwayne Hoover and an old writer named Kilgore Trout. This meeting leads to Dwayne going insane. At first, this book may seem to be a mix of irrelevant information with no exact chronological order. At times, this book can also be very confusing. However upon closer examination, the book has much more to offer. This book is written about America and draws many parallels with American Culture such as the many problems existing within America or the attitude of the peoples. Through analysis…

    Terry Pratchett’s Diskworld series and beyond. Vonnegut exceled at breaking you out of your comfortable world. He would suddenly rip his Captain Nemo or Blackbeard off their ship and replace them with a rooster or more probably a well endowed horse, just for the simple purpose of shattering your little safe house or island that you as the reader had built to stand on while you watched the story unfold around you, all while making the obvious joke. As an example, In Breakfast of Champions…

    There are many interesting things about the book breakfast of champions, a distinctive way of author writing style that defies fictional conventions, social commentaries and the exploration of relations between the fictional and the determinate. But these ideas are held by a very weak history, making everything less than its parts separately.

    If a reader does not follow closely what the author is talking about, one would most likely get lost, and have to reread. The use of arrows in this selection seems to be how the author transitions. He has an average of one paragraph per arrow. Maybe this is his way of transitioning from thought to thought. Either way, he is breaking the frame. Modernists say that the first paragraph should contain the topic sentence. The first paragraph in Vonnegut’s The Breakfast of Champions talks about how he…

    In the novel, Breakfast of Champions, Kurt Vonnegut discusses the issue of overall emotional state of Americans. This seems to be a rather recurring theme of the novel. Previously, Vonnegut says: "A lot of citizens were so ignored and cheated and insulted that they thought they might be in the wrong country, or even on the wrong planet, that some terrible mistake had been made. It might have comforted them some if their anthem and their motto had mentioned fairness or brotherhood or hope or…

    Is the College Football Playoff a step in the right direction in this sport or is it a step backward. In the past the College Football champion used to be decided by a National Championship game between the two highest ranked teams given to the two teams with the best records. Nowadays the champion is decided through a playoff system that includes the four best teams in the country. In my opinion I think that the playoff is a great idea, and I strongly believe it should continue. The College…

    Narrative Essay One tremendously windy Monday morning, the sky shifted gloomy shades of grey above my home in the land of 10,000 lakes: Minnesota. My loathsome alarm yet again woke me with its vexatious sound, as it does Monday through Friday. It took me an unpleasant 30 minutes to get myself out of bed and into the shower. After showering and picking out a nice cozy outfit, I dashed upstairs to grab a quick breakfast before heading to an early choir rehearsal. In a surprisingly pleasant turn…

    Unfortunately, for the typical Coast Guard trainee, pay grades E-4 and E-5, the cost of a typical DFAC a-la-carte meal is very significant even compared to other individuals attending other training where commercial per diem is authorized. For instance, at a normal Coast Guard installation, IAW Ref (c), the galley offers various items for a set price of $2.55 for breakfast and $4.65 for lunch and dinner respectfully. In comparison, a DFAC offers meals from a menu where each item is marked up 133…
