Product description

Review

"Poignant and hilarious, threaded with compassion and, behind everything, the cataract of a thundering moral statement."--The Boston Globe

"Very tough and very funny . . . sad and delightful . . . very Vonnegut."--The New York Times

"Splendid . . . a funny book at which you are not permitted to laugh, a sad book without tears."--Life

"Funny, satirical, compelling, outrageous, fanciful, mordant, fecund . . . 'It's too good to be science fiction, ' [the critics] would say. But Vonnegut doesn't care, and you won't care, either, because this is a writer who leaps over genres."--Los Angeles Times

From the Back Cover

"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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great book, poor quality control
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 December 2018
I love this book so I purchased it for my dad for christmas. When it arrived some of the pages were stuck together - the book had clearly been missed in quality control. This is so disappointing because I cant find a way to complain to the seller - I dont want to send the book back as it will be at my expense and effort, so I have just had to give it to my dad having taken a pair of scissors to it. It's only a small thing, but when you buy a book, at the very least you should be able to turn the pages -_-
