Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 5, Section 1 Summary

  • According to the Tralfamadorians, the stars don't look like points of light. They look like streaks, because the Tralfamadorians can see where the stars began and where they are going.
  • People look like multi-legged creatures with baby legs at one end and old people's legs on the other.
