Having made reference to it in the recent ‘Little Big Man’ blog post, I’ve just re-read Kurt Vonnegut’s ‘Slaughterhouse-Five’, a book I’ve returned to every four or five years since I first discovered it back in the ’80s – it’s one of those books I’ll always go back to as it contains some deeper truths, yet presents them in such a fantastically engaging and entertaining manner. Given the writing style, and with the book being just over 150 pages, this is a breeze of a read.
