Blurb: "Dresden is lovely this time of now." --DeviousToast

LOLBlurb: "Makz Ceerup Not War" --Shannon McGee


It was so hard to choose just two! Vonnegut lends himself to blurb-writing, but it's still incredibly difficult to imbue a single sentence with his wonderful sense of irony. Yet both blurbs speak to an understanding of the book that is difficult to convey in ten words or less. Slaughterhouse 5 is a contrast between the tragedy of war and the possibility of hope, and these blurbs do it fantastically well.

...Why do I feel like I just wrote an English paper?
Regular:
