I've always thought of Kurt Vonnegut as an author I liked. I recall starting to read many of his novels. However, I don't remember finishing many. Reading Slaughterhouse-five reminded me why. I love his style. He bounces all around time in a lively stream-of-conscious fashion. However, I've never been drawn in by the content of his stories.
Though it is often billed as an 'anti-war' or a 'science fiction' novel, Slaughterhouse-five comes across more as a personal story of Billy Pilgrim coming to terms with his life. The story has its ups and downs, but the style is what really keeps it going.
