Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
While being sufficiently entertaining enough to read quickly, I did not seem to capture the awe that so many others have when reading this book. However, Vonnegut offers a few interesting ideas throughout his novel: one being that there is no such thing as time--that we are forever frozen in all moments of existence.
Kurt Vonnegut writes in a style that is easy to absorb. I'm sure many people would get a kick out of this book in particular--which is probably why it was listed in Time Magazine's 100 best English-language novels written since 1923.
"That is a very Earthling _question to ask, Mr. Pilgrim. Why _you? Why us _for that matter? Why _anything? Because this moment simply is."
