Reviews & Summaries
I was astounded by the literary talents of Vonnegut. I have read nothing else like it.
This is a great book.
This book is not only a classic science-fiction novel, but a classic work of American fiction. Vonnegut's recollection of the Dresden bombings is both horrifying and enlightening. His anti-war sentiments and unique observations about trauma, time, and aging in a modern world are all still relevant today. This is a timless narrative about the contemporary human condition, especially as it pertains to war.
