Mr. Vonnegut, After thoroughly analyzing and metaphorically murdering your novel, Slaughterhouse Five, I have come to a much overdue conclusion that I think you 'll very much enjoy. Your use of figurative language has captured my heart in a way that no one else could. I adore Billy 's incredible personality, I strongly dislike the German soldiers that imprisoned all of your characters and the people who wanted to murder Billy. I feel empathetic for Billy 's first wife, Valencia since Billy met Montana and dies in a plane crash. However, Mr. Vonnegut, you have truly and utterly wrecked me. Your graphics hit me harder than The Fault In Our Stars and Me Before You did, so I have decided I must fall down a flight of stairs to forget this wretched, …show more content…
I would like to take notice how you start your novel off as you, Mr. Vonnegut, describing how Slaughterhouse Five came to be. I appreciate how you start off mentioning you have changed all the names in order to protect those involved, I find this very noble of you. I absolutely love Bernard V. O 'Hare, I love the idea of him. He seems like he was a great help in the writing process of your book and a great friend when you needed one. Bernard 's wife, Mary scares the living daylights out of me, but I admire her protective nature over her husband when it came down to it.

You better think this through much more carefully next time Vonnegut. I will not have the main character die, those do not make for good antiwar books, just tragic books. On page 102, you dare to tell me Billy does not like life at all, well there 's no wonder he doesn 't like it! Kurt Vonnegut you gave him a more than miserable life and I don 't blame him at all. He could have been okay, he could have gotten help, but you had to give him a condition, and make him hide his condition from everyone who knew and loved
