A true literary classic,
By A Customer
This review is from: Slaughterhouse Five or, The Children's Crusade (Paladin Books) (Paperback)
Kurt Vonnegut has produced an extraordinary account of a young soldier by the name of Billy Pilgrim, as he faces the disaster of the Dresden bombing in the second world war. Vonnegut's approach to this account sees Billy Pilgrim travel through time as he experiences many of his life roles both before and after the bombing, as we are taken on a journey through Billy's life. Vonnegut's style is both witty and serious, making Slaughterhouse 5 an entertaining read whilst truly bringing home the horrors of war. If you are particularly interested in war literature, Slaughterhouse 5 is a must.
