Title: Slaughterhouse Five
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Genre: Science Fiction/Satire
Category: 32. Read a book that was, or currently is, banned by a government
If you check out wikipedia’s list of books banned by governments you won’t find Slaughterhouse Five on the list but it’s on almost every list of banned books you’ll find. It’s often challenged because of it’s language as well as nudity and the way God is discussed. So I decided to go with it anyway since it’s been banned often enough by various groups.
Honestly, it’s not really my kind of book. I’ve definitely read other books about war this year but they’ve been quite rooted in reality while this book brought in a lot of science fiction aspects that just aren’t really my thing. Not to say I don’t like sci-fi I just don’t want it mixed with my war book.
I can see what people like about it but I didn’t enjoy it at all. Despite how short it is, it took me quite a while to get through.
Rating: 2.5/5 stars
