"I was instantly drawn to Vonnegut's Billy Pilgrim as he sailed across time and back and forth through his own life story. Vonnegut has such an amazing gift for stepping back from life and seeing the big picture, and, fascinatingly, that allows him to further appreciate life's seemingly insignificant joys and heartaches. When I read this book for the first time I suddenly felt the utter strangeness and the wonderful fleeting beauty of being alive."— Emily
Slaughterhouse-Five is one of the world's great anti-war books. Centering on the infamous fire-bombing of Dresden, Billy Pilgrim's odyssey through time reflects the mythic journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we are afraid to know.
