One of the best

Sometimes I like to think about what writers and authors people will consider to be some of the best a century from now. I’m not really sure what current writers will be considered the greats, but one thing I’m sure about is that those people won’t be writers of teenage vampire romances.

Even though he died a few years ago, I think a great writer that people will still be reading is Kurt Vonnegut. I hadn’t read his work in a while and ran across a blog with my wireless internet service that had a bunch of great quotes that he said in his books and in real life.

He just had this cynicism about the world and society that translated well into his works and that type of thinking and expression can even be said to be very Vonnegut. His works are really what got me into the whole dystopian genre and now I read a lot of other stuff that reminds me of his writing. IÕm pretty sure that people will remember him for that years from now.
