    I read this book first in 1999 when my grandfather passed away It was a bit of a coincidence as his funeral occurred between a Primate Anatomy exam and a paper for my Experimental Fiction class on Slaughterhouse Five I was frantically trying to remember the names of all kinds of bones when I picked this up in the other hand and tried to wrap my head around it.Basically, Vonnegut has written the only Tralfamadorian novel I can think of These beings, most undoubtedly inspired in Billy Pilgrim s I read this book first in 1999 when my grandfather passed away It was a bit of a coincidence as his funeral occurred between a Primate Anatomy exam and a paper for my Experimental Fiction class on Slaughterhouse Five I was frantically trying t...

    Listen This reviewer is stuck in time He is unable to escape the narrow confines of the invisible, intangible machinery mercilessly directing his life from a beginning towards an end The walls surrounding him are dotted with windows looking out on darkened memories and foggy expectations, easing the sense of claustrophobia but offering no way out The ceiling is crushing down on this man while he paces frantically through other people s lives and memories in hopes of shaping his own and forget Listen This reviewer is stuck in time He is unable to escape the narrow confines of the invisible, intangible machinery mercilessly directing his life from a beginning towards an end The walls surrounding him are dotted with windows looking out on darkened memories and foggy expectations, easing the sense of claustrophobia but offering no way out The ceiling is crushing down on this man while he paces frantically through other people s lives and memories in hopes of shaping his own and forgetting the enormity of oblivion looming above h...
