My Top Five Surreal Novels

1. The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka.

I first read this in my late teens and the tale of Gregor Samsa transfixed me with its oddness. Scary and beguiling it was only when I read it again in my 20’s that I started to pick up on some of the themes of isolation and transformation. 472 more words

Reviewing "Slaughterhouse 5"

We interrupt your previously scheduled programming for an interim review. I don’t know how reading books goes for you guys but I rarely read in an organised manner which is how I ended up reading Kurt Vonnegut’s “Slaughterhouse 5” instead of Toni Morrison’s “Beloved”¬†which is going to get pushed till next week. 643 more words

On re-reading 'Slaughterhouse 5'

I’ve read Elie Wiesel, Victor Frankel, Cory Ten Boom, & Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Somehow, this is the easiest story to take. No doubt because the brutal reality is tempered with not only the seemingly light hearted science fiction, but also with the superficial & banal life of the American bourgeoisie. 79 more words

Slaughterhouse-5 Review; excellent with few conditions.

“One thing was clear: Absolutely everybody in the city was supposed to be dead, regardless of what they were, and that anybody that moved in it represented a flaw in the design.” (113)
