Book Review: Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five book cover
Slaughterhouse-Five
Kurt Vonnegut
1969
★★★★☆

(Listened to audiobook)

I liked this bet­ter than Cat’s Cra­dle, but it’s still more of an I-re­spect-it-more-than-I-like-it. The time-travel struc­ture and satire are good. The char­ac­ters are fine. I know Von­negut is con­sid­ered to be a hu­mor­ous writer; I guess we have dif­fer­ent senses of hu­mor. I’m hav­ing a hard time ver­bal­iz­ing what I did­n’t like; Von­negut just does­n’t click for me. I don’t think I’ll be read­ing any more of his books. So it goes.
