Slaughterhouse-Five is also known as Slaughterhouse-Five, or The Children's Crusade.
Slaughterhouse-Five is one of the world's great anti-war books. Centering on the infamous firebombing of Dresden, Billy Pilgrim's odyssey through time reflects the mythic journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we are afraid to know.
A book which made me think, and think again.... I think I got a little tired towards the end, but it's groundbreaking and some of the ideas in it will make me rethinking how I think about good and bad events.
I probably won't reread it, but would recommend to a friend... if they were the kind to appreciate a storyline that's about thinking through situations, rather than a 'the hero wins' type book.
