Welcome to the Monkey House. The title itself sounds like a fun and whimsical tale about a tail or two. However, this book lends itself to deep thinkers and revolutionary ideas. This book is a compilation of stories by the artist, Kurt Vonnegut. His black humor and satiric voice turns even the happiest of endings into a thought and conversation provoking piece. Vonnegut writes with passion, detail, wit, and wisdom. Each story makes the reader turn the page. Every ending begs for another. Though this book compiles several of his stories, they each weave the same picture: life is meant to be lived to the fullest. Life is not perfect, but best lived with gusto, mistakes, triumphs, and humility.
