Having read this book during a beach vacation, “Slaughterhouse Five” has been a perfectly short, yet impactful read. The writing style is one of a kind, which leaves you perplexed in the beginning & wondering what kind of a book you have stumbled across & whether it’s worth getting through it or not…
As the story advances though, you get more & more used to it, start to grasp its significance, its originality.
All in all, the author successfully tackles the subject of the inexplicable circumstances of having lived through war & the attempts of trying to put them on paper.
I’ve been touched by it & have appreciated the writing a lot, equalling in a strong suggestion for reading if you want to experience some of Vonnegut’s writing for the 1st time.
