If you click the image above, it will take you to the Picasa album containing a series of four interconnected images from my lecture on Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five.  The writing is from the third day of class lectures/discussion.

  1. Slaughterhouse-Five is seriously a fantastic book. It mixes alien fiction with everyday reality and continues to play psychological mind games with you. The main thing that caught my attention was how descriptive Billy Pilgrim (the main character) is about war. It really makes you think twice about war and society. In my opinion, the book really stresses that there is more than one way to see a situation. My fav. character is Billy Pilgrim. He is very interesting, yet his home life with his wife really stinks. I don't think he really likes her much. He seems depressed and morbid around her.

  2. Absolutely. Vonnegut was outspoken about his anti-war opinions, most notably because of his experiences in WW2. There's a nifty book that collects some of his interviews out that I had the chance to read. Will have to review it now…
