Billy Pilgrim was right.
“Everything there [is] to know about life [is] in The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoevsky.”
Being that Brothers Karamazov is 777 pages long, this quote from Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.in Slaughterhouse V actually isn’t all that surprising.
Tender, cruel, and questioning, the long novel examines central philosophical questions while maintaining a deep reverence for life and God, all while being a fascinating novel.
Hands down the best novel, and even book, I have ever read.
