I had been planning to read Slaughterhouse Five for ages now and I finally did it. I bought it at Chapters and read it whenever I got the chance and I actually really liked it.
I’m not 100% sure I got it though, which is why I’m not doing a proper review. I understood the story and from hearing other people talk about it I know what it was saying, but I think this is definitely a novel I’ll need to read a few more times before I can fully appreciate it.
I actually liked this though, not getting it 100% on the first go. Some books I finish and I really enjoyed them, but it’s straight onto the next one.
I finished Slaughterhouse Five and I just kind of sat there thinking about it, trying to figure out what it all meant.
I got really excited when I finally understood the title of the book which, for years now, I had no clue why it was called what it was called.
I definitely need to read this book again because even though I don’t think I got it, I did really enjoy it.
It’s just one of those books that is so talked about and was (and still is) so influential. I definitely recommend checking out Slaughterhouse Five if you haven’t already. You might read it and not understand it, but I think, in this case, that’s okay.
