Slaughterhouse Five has been sitting on my bookshelf for awhile. I have the 25th Anniversary edition, with a ‘new’ prologue by Vonnegut. Slaughterhouse Five was originally published in the same year I was born, so I can easily do the math. I know how long it has been since I was 25. An entire decade has passed.
The book club I recently joined is reading it for June. So I started reading it last night. I read Vonnegut’s prologue (possibly a mistake since it may have spoiled some things for me.), and Chapter One.
All I can do is kick myself for waiting so long.
