Analyze; The newspaper article was from New York Times named “Slaughterhouse-Five, Or the Children’s Crusade” that was published in 1969 and was a story about a book that was related to the experiences of World War II.

In the article we see that Kurt Vonnegut Jr., is an inexpressible writer whose seven preceding books aren’t like anything else on earth, was given the doubtful delight of witnessing the apocalypse of the 20th century.

At the age of 23 in World War II he happened to be captured by some Germans and locked up beneath the Dresden city, “the Florence of the Elbe.”

Next to his birth, marriage and having children, it appears to be most significant thing in his life. And, as the author writes in the introduction of “Slaughterhouse-Five,” he’s long been attempting to write the book about Dresden from that time.

Now, he’s completed the “famous Dresden book.” In a similar introduction that should be read out loud to the children, basic trainees and cadets, Mr. Vonnegut is seen to pronounce his book as a failure “since there is nothing intelligent to say about a massacre.”

This difficulty of Billy’s allows the author to tell the story fluidly, jumping backward and forward in time, free from the chronology strictures.

And this difficulty of Billy’s is associated to the next thing, which is what Billy says during his daughter’s wedding, he happened to be kidnapped by a certain flying saucer from Tralfamadore, taken there by a time distort, and shown with the movie star called Montana Wildhack.

However there is a lot more to the book. It happens to be very funny and very tough; it is delightful and sad; and it functions. But it tends to be very Vonnegut that means one will either love it, or decide to push it back to science-fiction.
