I just finished reading Vonnegut’s Bluebeard, and I am absolutely blown away. A happy ending? This really rocks my world.
For some reason I’ve identified with Vonnegut a lot lately–not so much directly with the subject matter, but with the broader themes of disillusionment and the loss of innocence. Every Vonnegut book I’ve read so far has had a pretty dark ending, except for this one. What does this mean? Does it mean that my life will turn out happily, or is it just another one of life’s little disillusionments?
