Valerie This is beautifully expressed - I feel better now too.


message 2: by Brooke (new)

Brooke I dream about my grandparents every once in a while. It's like they are alive again.


message 3: by Matthew (new)

Matthew Ok, gotta agree with that. I loathed the book, but the Tralfamadorians were very interesting. Unfortunately, they had nothing at all to do with the fire bombing of Dresden.I felt he threw that whole bit in to make it less pathetic. Sorry... not a fan. But you make a very good point. We should all learn to appreciate the happy moments and pay less heed to the rest.


message 4: by Alex (new)

Alex Fleming I love your writing. Your review makes me want to read your story more than the one yor reviewing. I cant wait to hear your wise, philosophical, sad soothing vibrant voice again.

message 6: by Sandra (new)

Sandra This is exactly how I think about this book...


message 7: by Kaila (new)

Kaila Damn. This made me more sad than the book did.


message 8: by Katie (new)

Katie H I've been dreaming about my grandmother a lot since reading this book... About her still being present while being in a separate world at the same time. In the most vivid dream, she was lying next to me, able to speak and communicate, but unable to open her eyes or move. It's interesting to see the dreams inspired by reading!


message 9: by Paige (new)

Paige Cade Couldn't have phrased it better myself. Decided to pick up and re-read slaughterhouse v (first read and loved it as a high school student) and see if it still resonated with me. My mom is dying of cancer and it's easy to get stuck in that vortex of awful, so I can really relate.


message 10: by Geoff (new)

Geoff the carpet of our lives is fabricated by those we have been fortunate enough to love and by those that taught us pain. may they walk over me forever.

Tralfamadore also appears in "Sirens of Titan". If you haven't read it, I recommend diving in. Many say it is Vonnegut's best work.
