I didn’t know what to expect of this book, was it going to be a war book? And what about the label of it as sci-fi, how does one connect those two?

I am not sure I can describe what exactly I enjoyed about it, but it was great! A satirical, subtle, non-linear war book with an untraditional narrator. All to address the meaningless destructions of war, and human rawness as a result. And so it goes.

Meli (melihooker) | 3449 comments When I first started reading I picked this up because I like horror and I assumed by the title it was a horror book. I didn't know who Vonnegut was, which is insane because I am a Hoosier.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. I guess it was horror in some ways, war always is, and just a strange kind of disorienting read.
