Slaughterhouse-Five

Tough-O-Meter

(5) Tree Line

The language of Slaughterhouse-Five is straightforward, so it's easy to understand what's happening in each of the sections. But with all the time jumping, alien abduction, and heavy-duty philosophy, it can be tough to work out how the sections go together. This is definitely a book where you can lose track of what's happening where and when.
