SummaryAdd a Summary
Slaughterhouse five was interesting overall but was very hard to read because of all the setting changes that happened throughout the book. I would rate this book five out of ten. This is a result of a lot of the problems that were in the book that made it hard to follow and boring at times. I liked the story overall as it followed Billy Pilgrim through different parts of time and through his life. The different events that happened through Billy life are interesting and bring life to the book that most books don’t have. Also the book is written as if Billy Pilgrim is revisiting the past and already knows what is happening throughout the story. For example he knows when certain events are about to happen to him. I like this because it brings the character out in a different way and new light. However the parts that stuck out the most were the parts that were hard to follow. Without giving anything away this book really flew from moment to moment. For example the main character Billy would be in World War II for two paragraphs and then be in a different part of his life for the next few pages. This could cause trouble to a reader who is not paying full attention to one part and then comes back to read it again the next day that reader will be lost and confused if they don’t remember what happened from last time they read it. I would suggest reading this in a group setting for a book club or for english class as a assigned reading book. I believe this would fit well in that setting because this book is a great book to talk about and analyze but not a great book to read by yourself
