Slaughterhouse-5 by Kurt Vonnegut begins with explaining how Billy Pilgrim has become unstuck in time; which means he travels to different points in his life completely out of order. He’s a teenager in World War II one moment and then on a zoo on an alien plant with a porn star. Pilgrim begins going to college to be an optometrist, but then is drafted in to the army to fight in Germany. After the war he finished his degree, married a woman and had two children, then he was abducted by aliens. They take him to a zoo on their planet Tralfamadore and bring him a mate who was a porn star on earth. The author continuously repeats the saying ‘So it goes.’ I think that its a coping mechanism. Something horrible happened, so it goes. Also the timeline is all over the place, considering the main character is unstuck in time it makes sense, but it’s a little hard to keep track of what happens when. I personally enjoy books with unusual timelines and i enjoyed this book very much. I liked the irony and the dry sense of humor the author has.
