American Gods by Neil Gaiman Ch. 3

This chapter is largely only concerned with he interaction between Shadow and his now undead wife. The scene itself was mostly the same as it was adapted yet the feeling was a bit different. The character of Laura comes off as stranger in her demeanor towards life. In the show you see her as having…

Slaughterhouse-5 by Kurt Vonnegut Ch. 3

This chapter continues much like the first or should I say second in telling the tale of Billy Pilgrim. It is intriguing to go between the harsh war reality and the seemingly mundane future Billy keeps rubber banding between.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman Ch. 1

Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut Ch. 1

I am beginning here with the first of many works by Vonnegut; an author whom I’ve heard of for quite a while but have never read behind. I will say that his style is one which I enjoy profusely. It reminds me of a book I’ve just finished called Meddling Kids, yet I believe this was…
