it was ok

From my point of view the book Slaughterhouse-Five is that fun to read. The begging of book was really difficult to concentrate on and so confusing to get idea of what is going on in the story and it made me bored. Letter on the story starts at World War II where the main character is a prisoner and how all people there didn't have any story this part of story was better and put me on right picture that what I’m thinking. The main character Billy Pilgrim was taken by alliance and how he was talking with one of them knew the earthen language and that part was interesting but he was strange man. I didn't really like this book. When Pilgrim got to the earth its makes me so confused what was happened next. It was from one to another that I didn't like. Made me so confused and with all of those the book had an interesting idea but too complicate. I read it kind of fast to fit into my graphic but I miss understood at some points. That might affect my point that book is boring and not interesting to read. You can get confused really easily about who was Billy Pilgrim and what is he doing to do or already did. That's what I think about this book…

Hoyon Kim The beginning was actually confusing but I really loved the main part and the ending. I also liked how the first chapter already tells you the last sentence of the book.

Layla I didn't think that the beginning was that confusing, but yeah...I agree that the first chapter had more significance after you read the ending. =)

Jerangjeon I agree that the first part of this book was CONFUSING. But, it was nice book. :)

Maihiroyama The beginning of the story was hard to understand, though from chapter two, I started to understand about this story. Similar to your opinion, I didn't enjoy to read this book too but neither thought that it was THAT boring...

Alia I agree with Hoyon, the beginning WAS really confusing, but I also loved the main part and the ending, it was so had to appreciate it!
