Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

The Book Thief
Markus Zusak
Pontypool Changes Everything
Tony Burgess
Slaughterhouse-Five - Kurt Vonnegut I've read this before, and remember it better. Not an awful lot happens, for a protagonist who was captured by the enemy in World War II, lived through the fire-bombing of Dresden, was captured by aliens in a flying saucer and kept in a zoo, and finally survived a plane crash that killed all but one of the others on board. Everything just skims the surface, and you not only don't get much of a sense of the real Billy Pilgrim, you couldn't care less if there is a real Billy Pilgrim.
