A sort of biography of someone who was in Dresden when it was bombed in WWII. The technique of telling a persons life story by jumping back and forth to different events, is not original. But here the author just goes with it literally, making the protagonist a time-travel who jumps randomly to different parts of his own life.
Add some aliens and a bunch of absurd events many of which might well be true, and you've got yourself enough honey to help the reader swallow this story. A tale which is poignant, dark and depressing, in which thousands of people die for reasons which remain foggy at best. ( )

What can I say about this classic that already hasn't been said? Equal parts hilarious and miserable. Just count how many times he says "So it goes". I love that Vonnegut plants himself in a meta way next to Billy Pilgrim. On a mission to read all the Vonnegut but the last one was a few years ago now....

Enduring Trauma of War

Slaughterhouse-Five, called one of the greatest anti-war novels in American literature, couldn’t have been more timely, released as the Vietnam War raged on, and would continue until 1975. Kurt Vonnegut draws on his personal experience as a soldier captured in WWII and imprisoned in a slaughterhouse in Dresden shortly before Allied forces obliterated the city, killing upwards of 130,000 civilians. Protagonist Billy Pilgrim, completely unprepared for war, serves as a sort of everyman, so traumatized by his war experience that it haunts him for the rest of his life, and forces him to escape into another world entirely, Tralfamadore. Tralfamadorian philosophy, things are and always will be, assuages the conscious of someone who has witnessed so much destruction and death. Of course, as the novel shows through its skillful random shifting of time, Billy, and probably no one, can ever escape the pain or unsee what they have witnessed.

As you might not guess, or maybe it will not surprise you given today’s division, Slaughterhouse-Five proved controversial in its day and for decades after. Schools and libraries attempted removing it, but a case that went to the Supreme Court (Island Trees School District v. Pico) prevented that. For instance, the novel describes the Dresden firebombing as a massacre, removes any heroics or higher meaning bestowed by manner of death with “And so it goes,” throws the concept of free will into doubt, and shows that war traumatizes in ways that those involved can never leave behind, as Billy, and the author, can never put their experience behind them.

Spend a couple of hours with this novel. You’ll find it a couple of hours well spent, and hopefully help you realize that war, even for the sake of a just cause as WWII was, always comes at a tremendous prize in the present moment of conflict and for a lifetime beyond.

This book is certainly weird but it is weird in a way that I still enjoyed reading it. I am a fan of satire so that helped me enjoy this book more since elements of it are very satirical. There is a lot of discussion of free will vs fate in this book which I think is a rather interesting discussion. I have spent a lot of time reading about different philosophical ideas surrounding the idea of free will. It actually ended up leaving me bothered in the book because Vonnegut takes a very black of white approach when really there a far more schools of thought when it comes to free will. Obviously this isn't a book about philosophy but I would have liked to see the idea fleshed out further. I found all the characters very interesting to read about which definitely made the story more compelling. I think Billy is an intriguing character. I also think his time travel elements were well written. The descriptions in this book were very strong and painted a great picture for the reader. Even though this book is very strange I never found myself lost like I did with books like Beloved so that fact also kept me engaged. I own another book by Vonnegut and I will probably pick it up because I did enjoy this book. ( )
