I’m not sure just what I was expecting when I started reading Slaughterhouse-Five but it definitely wasn’t what the book is. I found the tone a bit jarring, which was good given the themes, and a bit sarcastic as well, which I enjoyed. It took a while to get used to the back and forth randomness. It’s not a style of writing I particularly enjoy, but it fit the themes as well. It’s pretty short so it reads fast. Vonnegut’s commentary on life and war and people throughout this book gives you a lot to think about. While I didn’t love it, I’m still glad I read it and do recommend others read it.
