I forgot I had a tumblr account!
I have my dad’s Kindle on loan for a few months and I am determined to read as much as I can before I have to return it.
For now, this tumblr will track my progress and contain my thoughts on the book, if any.
title: Mother Night
author: Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
read in: 1 day
I’ve always had an interest in WWII and the Holocaust. This novel comes from an interesting perspective: that of an American spy disguised as a Nazi propagandist in Hitler’s Germany. Well, he was more a medium of espionage than an actual spy, but it still creates a lot of problems for him.
Lots of themes here. “We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be” being the main one that Vonnegut himself brings up in the Introduction, calling it the “moral.”
