    "I love books with deeper meanings. I think it is important to have something to look into the book with. Animal Farm was that book. Many meanings could be undearthed in this novel, but I thought the hidden message was the main reason I kept reading."

    ""Slaughterhouse-Five" is not the best book by Kurt Vonnegut but I think it is safe to assume it is his most popular and well known work. This book is a sincere representation of the author's opinions about several important issues and the way he manages to captivate readers by the intertwined use of comic relief and serious/sad tones is indeed worth admiring.

    "I found this book to be pretty good and I think it could help a lot of people who are having problems in life, especially dealing with the loss of someone close. It can help them understand God's love and help them work through their problem. I did find some of the theology not to be biblically based so it could confuse some people if they started looking further into the theology."
