    I remember reading this in American Literature class, and I always wanted to come back to it because it's just one of those books that I don't think reading it once will suffice. There's obviously a lot going on there than initially meets the eye.

    There's the obvious story, which is about Billy Pilgrim, a veteran and optometrist who is seemingly suffering from some sort of mental illness like PTSD from his time in the war,

    I know this a oldie but goodie book but somehow I missed it all these years. Interesting reading it 50 years after it was published. It has passed the test of time. It is oddly engaging and unpredictable and just plain weird. This type of work can not be copied because it so utterly original. I can see how it was shocking in 1967 and was ultimately banned by some schools. Funny how that insured it would get

    I finally got to read this book on the 50th anniversary of its publication. The originality of this anti war book made it worth the wait and the themes are as valid today as they ever were.

    The story is mainly set in Dresden

    I felt compelled to revisit Vonnegut’s iconic anti war novel, Slaughterhouse Five, for two reasons. Firstly, because from time to time (and our times are no exception) we all have to remind ourselves of the macabre of wars.
    Vonnegut shows us the true colours of war. He dismantles all the naively romantic

    I first read Slaughterhouse Five as student getting on for twenty five years ago now. I loved it and have returned to it at intervals ever since. I seem to have misplaced my original copy in recent times, so when I saw this version I felt it time to revisit an old favourite. This re reading hit me hard. Without spoiling the plot, I

    It's clever. I can see why it's considered a classic. Poor Billy Pilgrim is the subject of a wide number of humiliations throughout the book inflicted by those who love, hate or are indifferent to him. He jumps from one place and time to ano

Itness He is surrounded by Vonnegut's usual large cast of continuing characters notably here the hack science fiction writer Kilgore Trout and the alien Tralfamadorians who oversee his life and remind him constantly that there is no causation no order no motive to existence The unstuck nature of Pilgrim's experience may constitute an early novelistic use of what we now call post traumatic stress disorder; then again Pilgrim's aliens.

It s clever I can see why it s considered a classic Poor Billy Pilgrim is the subject of a wide number of humiliations throughout the book inflicted by those who love hate or are indifferent to him He jumps from one place and time to another as he experiences his life as a child in the war and as a husband and father I found it impossible to say for sure how much or how little of the narration was reliable The narrative is fractured as is any semblance of chronology but that s intentional and works well with the story And certain phrases are repeated as if like a mantra that attempts to ground the narrator into the here and now or the then and thereIt s a philos
