By Kurt Vonnegut ☆ 7 Download characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ By Kurt Vonnegut Free download Slaughterhouse-Five Slaughterhouse Five is the now famous parable of Billy Pilgrim a World War II veteran and POW who has in the later stage of his life become unstuck in time and who experiences at will or unwillingly all known events of his chronology out of order and sometimes simultaneously Traumatized by the bombing of Dresden at the time he had been imprisoned Pilgrim drifts through all events and history sometimes deeply implicated sometimes a w. I remember reading this in American Literature class and I always wanted to come back to it because it s just one of those books that I don t think reading it once will suffice There s obviously a lot going on there than initially meets the eyeThere s the obvious story which is about Billy Pilgrim a veteran and optometrist who is seemingly suffering from some sort of mental illness like PTSD from his time in the war and also some sort of possible brain damage suffered from an airplane crash These elements compound each other and Billy finds himself traveling through time to different points in his life during his time in World War II during his time with his wife Valencia on a planet inhabited by the Tralfamadorians who have him locked up as a human zoo exhibit and a few othersBut then there is the author s underlying messages one of which is about the utter senselessness of war The Germans are making candles out of the Jews while Americans are melting German teenagers and we all know that the Soviets were starving tens of millions of their own while fighting the Germans It s just a vicious cycle of death and evilThe other message is a philosophical one There s a very strong sense that there is no free will and there is also a sense of nihilism that no matter what we do the outcomes are fixed and the future unchangingI hope that the philosophical message isn t a correct one I tend to side with those who believe strongly that we are in control of our fates and that no matter how dire the circumstances we have the choice to make things a little bit better Ironically I think Vonnegut has done exactly that with his book He has made an impact with this book by bringing awareness to the evils of warRead the book It s a good one
