Slaughterhouse-Five/The Children’s Crusade by Kurt Vonnegut- Quote Collection

“There are almost no characters in this story, and almost no dramatic confrontations, because most of the people in it are so sick and so much the listless playthings of enormous forces. One of the man effects of war, after all, is that people are discouraged from being characters.” (Kurt Vonnegut, “Eight,” Slaughterhouse-Five, 164)
