Slaughterhouse 5
Well how we doin?  This makes the second time I've read this little book, and I can't say my opinions changed much.  From a technical standpoint, Kurt is the man.  If you've ever tried to write, then you know that going in a straight line is bad enough, but skipping around from one part of a story to another ain't no easy thing at all.   He handles all of that easily.  The book is far more easily read than it has any right to be.  I'm interested to hear if any of you read it, and what ya thought if ya did.
But hey, how could he not write this book?  A man survives the greatest masacre of WWII, by hiding in a slaughterhouse. 
So it goes.
