Too subtle for an anti-war book

Slaughterhouse Five - Ethan Hawke, Kurt Vonnegut

For me, this was too subtle for an anti-war book. I just didn't feel anything. I understood that the 'time traveling' were really the delusions of a man using his imagination to escape the horror of war but there was too much distraction for me to really feel the pain.

Ethan Hawke did a good job with the narration. There wasn't that much dialogue so he didn't have to flex his acting muscle that much portraying different characters but his dreamy tone gave you the sense that this man wasn't living in the present but in his head.

One good thing I have to say is that this book made me want to learn more about the fire bombing of Dresden.
