    ePUB blackswanteacouk ë Hocus Pocus MOBI ↠ hocus kindle, pocus ebok, Hocus Pocus ePUBThe truth can be very funny in an awful way especially as it relates to greed and hypocrisyIn many ways this is about hypocrisy and deception and so is one of Vonnegut’s most scathingly cynical and satirical works and yet his scorn here is subtle though rarely playful as he can be and has demonstrated in other novels This most reminded me of his 1979 novel Jailbird We have another unreliable narrator but this is Vonnegut and so situational irony and complexity spice the topsy turvy perspective We have a protagonist nicknamed “The Preacher” who does not curse and yet is a killer and serial adulterer The title “Hocus Pocus” comes from the idea that words are like magic creating illusions that can cast spells and create misinformation and can conjure up the idea of a
