The hero of this amazingly moving, bitter, and amusing narrative of innocence confronted with doom, Billy Pilgrim has worked as a prisoner of war, an optometrist, and a time-traveler. Slaughterhouse 5 is regarded as one of the finest anti-war novels ever written. Billy Pilgrim's trip through time, centered on the tragic fire-bombing of Dresden during World War II, symbolizes our own shattered lives as we seek meaning in what we are terrified to discover.
