Slaughterhouse - Five of the Children's Crusade: Kuro Vonnegut, Jr.

The book is about the story of a man who has lost a grip on reality (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder-PTSD) after World War II. Rapidly jumping from moments in the war to present day, our main charecter has found unhappiness in life because he experienced so much horror as a child (age 18). The book does not glorify war so taht many young men won't be inspired to fight in the war and live a more fulfilling life.


Post Office: Charles Bukowski

This book tells the story of the blue collar, an all-American pessimist known as Henry Chinaski. He works for the post office where he is the victim of cruel tasks assigned by cruel men. In his free time, he writes and develops relationships with many intriguing people.


Whirligig: Paul Fleischman

Such a touching story of one man's attempt to atonement from killing a girl in an accident. Five out of five stars in my world!


Queen of the Damned: Anne Rice

AMAZING. the series is just getting better and better so far. It's the story of how the Queen Mother or all Vampires awaken due to the Lestat's awesome, amazing music, and tells it from the point of views of many different characters and then from Lestat's point of view. And it is AWESOME.
