Best book I've ever read
I love this book. And not in the way that a snob would say that they love classics, but in a way that after I had to read it for summer homework and write a book report on it, I still love it and I want the world to read it! 5/5! 10/10! 50/50! 100/100! Googol/Googol! READ IT!
I first read this as required reading for a high school english class. I remember approaching it the same way I approached every required reading: with a groan. However, from the first page I was hooked. After we finished it in class I went out and bought if for myself and still read it from time to time. It presents an interesting view of life, to say the least. So it goes.
It's an amazing weird.
I read this before I began my English Literature class and I immediately fell in love with Vonnegut. Now he is my all time favorite. The things he comes up with, how me smashes aliens and world war 2 together, my two favorites, makes me want to read it over and over. I seriously recommend this book although it is not so serious. I know you will enjoy it!
