SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE Or the Children's Crusade: A Duty Dance with Death

by | Read by Ethan Hawke

Classics • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1969

Here it is in all its glory: the book that has baffled high schoolers for two generations. From Dresden to Tralfamadore and all the places in between, Vonnegut tells a story that's impossible to put down. To make matters even better, the book gets star treatment from narrator Ethan Hawke, who immerses us in the author's words. Hawke almost whispers his way through the text as if letting us in on a big secret, and he is marvelously effective. He uses impeccable diction and effective pauses to create an atmospheric world that gives the book an authentic otherworldly feel. By the end, Hawke has taken us on a journey that both illuminates the author's words and reflects our understanding of them. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
