Fridge: Slaughterhouse-Five

  • Speaking of Vonnegut, This troper started liking Slaughterhouse-Five a lot more once she realized that the entire book is structured like a Tralfamadorian novel.
    • That is: "There isnít any particular relationship between the messages, except that the author has chosen them carefully, so that, when seen all at once, they produce an image of life that is beautiful and surprising and deep. There is no beginning, no middle, no end, no suspense, no moral, no causes, no effects. What we love in our books are the depths of many marvelous moments seen all at one time."
