Read from June 29 to July 01, 2011

I found this book very hard to get through. With Billy Pilgrim's "time traveling" back & forth through his memories, & then flipping back to the author's bits & pieces of memories, it was difficult to keep the storyline streamlined in my mind. The book was mostly about WW2, & the firebombing of Dresden, combined with Billy's claims of being abducted by space aliens from the planet Trafalmadore, & bits & pieces of Billy's life.

It was listed on the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die list, & for the life of me, I have no idea why. I could easily have gone without reading this one...
