Slaughterhouse-Five - Kurt Vonnegut I just re-read this book on a flight home from Seoul, Korea. I forgot how much I enjoyed this story. Come follow along as Billy Pilgram the unprepared soldier, successful optometrist, Tralfamadorian zoo exhibit and time traveler shares his stories of life, war and time travel.

While the heart of the novel is the fire-bombing of Dresden during the second world war, that is used mostly as an anchor in this story as it veers all through Billy's life (and death).

Well written, funny at times, and thought provoking. What else can you ask for in your sci-fi?
