ENG 590: “Jailbird”

Where has June gone? It’s June 16th! I don’t like this! I’ve somehow let the first half of June slip away from me without publishing any posts (only the ones that I had pre-scheduled to post, at least…).

Y’all, I just don’t know what to do.


Anyway, we’re here to talk about Vonnegut’s novel Jailbird. I actually missed the lecture on this particular novel because I was attending a Dropkick Murphys concert instead (it was my first legitimate concert, ever!).

I will also say that I didn’t get more than about sixty pages into this book, because I had already decided what my final paper was going to be on and I knew that Jailbird didn’t fit into this.

So this is going to be a very disappointing post, but I knew that in order to consider this particular series complete, I had to add this post in.

I didn’t read Jailbird because I couldn’t get into it (also I was distracted by the fact that I would be going to a concert). It didn’t catch my attention like the others had, and I found it a lot more difficult to get into. I am going to consider attempting to re-read this sometime in the future, but for now, it’s off the table.


Have you read Jailbird? Do you think I’m a horrible person because I openly admit that I don’t do my homework? Let me know in the comments!

And as always, keep reading.
