I just finished this book, and by far this is the best book I have read in my life. And I would strongly suggest for those of you interested in a new book to pick this one up, and give her a whirl. Thou one thing to remember is that kurt vonnegut is making fun of these subject matters that he covers in the books.

Actually, in Slaughterhouse Five, he's not making fun of it, per se. It's somewhat autobiographical.

The bit where it describes Billy (?) seeing a WW2 bombing run in reverse is absolutely mesmerising. So, he sees planes flying in reverse, sucking up fire and explosions into little metal canisters which are then shipped to the US where they are taken apart, and the harmful components buried deep in the earth.

aaah sounds like an interesting read, how does the whole "being dead aint all that dead thing" (for laziness and a lack of a better description) work?
i'm guessing the book revolvesa around timetravel themes aswell

Absolutely excellent book, we're studying it for English. I love that part about that tree which has money and diamonds as fruits and which fertilises itself with the bodies of the people who fight over it at its base. Pure genious.

Such a weird book too, it's autobiographical. And science fiction. And a war novel. And a comedy. Great stuff.

I might read it this year. I say might because in this assignment we're doing (get 100 pts by reading books and writing tests by the end of the year, it's for 10% of our grade in English), it's only worth 8 points.

As I recall, the part about the bombing of Dresden came from Mr. Vonnegut's own experience of the event.

I don't think that Billy actually got kidnapped by aliens, but was having hallucinations and flashbacks as a result of a post-traumatic psychological disorder from witnessing Dresden.

^ Is that part of an AR program, by chance?
