Just yesterday, I was standing in line to an ATM downtown in the small city where I live during the school year. The smell of BBQ mutton was heavy in the air as I lamented to a dear friend that I would miss the local library over summer break as my small town home library has a lesser collection of materials.

Today, my first day of (quite possibly) my last summer in my hometown, I was searching the shelves for Slaughterhouse-Five and was shocked to find this title as well. I had been wanting to read it for awhile, but had not even thought to check the Madville library. (The DCPL, incidentally, does not have it.)

This is a quick and enjoyable read in the classic Vonnegut style of humor and depth. It solidified my love of Vonnegut and introduced many new people and events to me. I had never heard of the Tasmanian genocide before. That's what will probably stick with me from this book.
