Overview
What We're Reading Now:
"Slaughterhouse-Five is one of those books that wasn't popular enough to be made available for me when I was a child. My uncle recommended it to me, saying it was one of his favorite books as a teenager. It's now easily one of my favorites as well. It is without a doubt one of the funniest books I've read in a long time. Aside from making me laugh, it has a strong message about America in the war, particular the bombing of Dresden, which killed more people than Hiroshima. I have a feeling this book will remain one of my favorites for a long time. Also in the book is a single, naughty limerick, forever cementing my love for that poetic style. I won't share it here—you'll have to read the book!"
Per Hoel, Magazine Specialist
Slaughterhous-Five is one of the world's great anti-war books. Centering on the infamous fire-bombing 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.
