It really was as great as it is proclaimed to be. I'm not too fond of reading/watching anything that has to do with war, but this book was a fantastic read. It made me cry so hard, but also laugh a lot. The vividness of the story is astonishing, and I got epic literature-nerd jitters from the masterly writing of Vonnegut. It is absolutely wonderful - and horrific - in every way it should be.
