An incredible, unbelievable book!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Slaughter House Five (Mass Market Paperback)
I read this book as part of my 11th grade English class this year, and had been told for years to read it by my father. I couldn't put it down.
The bitter satire, and the fact that Billy Pilgrim is such an average man made the book more than a good story. The time jumping didn't bother me in the least. Indeed, the whole book read like a true story.
The style, which delivers the most gruesome happenings in a flat, emotionless way, is at the same time full of a criticism of American society and of war. Funny, isn't it, that Billy Pilgrim was happier in Dresden than in America!
