Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

December 6, 2015

A winding, dark, and quickly paced journey through time and war and death.

I’m no skilled judge of writing, but the good stuff always seems to draw me through quickly. This book did exactly that, with a straightforward writing style that also managed to be playful, funny, poignant, and richly thoughtful despite its masterful brevity. Loved it.

I don’t think I’ve read something that feels quite so spontaneous yet densely packed with little comments and insights one could only acquire through an observant, contemplative human existence.
