Slaughterhouse Five is one of the best Book

Slaughterhouse Five is one of the best book that I have ever read I would even call it a masterpiece Kurt Vonnegut s anonymous and bizarre first person narrator is what makes it so interesting I would say that this book is a mix of satire and postmodern writing Even though Vonnegut has written this book in modern English it is still very difficult to try to understand what he is trying to say because this is not a simple book He has a unique and dense with only dialogue and action writing style that I find fascinating The war is nearly over The locomotives began to move east in late December The war would end in May German prisons everywhere were absolutely full and there was no longer any food for the prisoners to eat and no longer any fuel to keep them warm And yet here came more prisoners Vonnegut As for the plot it is very interesting I find it very fascinating how the little vignettes and colourful characters that Vonnegut created I personally loved the fact how I as the reader is never sure whether Billy is actually travelling through different times and places or he just has a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to his past incidents I also liked how the book is about giving the readers an anti war message Slaughterhouse Five has that imaginative humanity and also gleeful appreciation in Vonnegut's other books but this book is all about impenetrable a tragic fact that gives it a unique tragedy and humor
