Plot: Two young children, Pearl and John Harper, are being raised alone by their mother in Cresap’s Landing, Ohio. Their father Ben has just been executed for killing two men in the course of an armed robbery. Ben never told anyone where he hid the ten thousand dollars he stole; not his widow Willa, not his lawyer, nor his cell-mate Henry “Preacher” Powell. But Preacher, with his long history of charming his way into widows’ hearts and lives, has an inkling that Ben's money could be within his reach. As soon as he is free, Preacher makes his way up the river to visit the Harper family where—he hopes—a little child shall lead him to the fortune that he seeks.

Plot : It's the Great Depression. In the process of robbing a bank of $10,000, Ben Harper kills two people. Before he is captured, he is able to convince his adolescent son John and his daughter Pearl not to tell anyone, including their mother Willa, where he hid the money, namely in Pearl's favorite toy, a doll that she carries everywhere with her. Ben, who is captured, tried and convicted, is sentenced to death. But before he is executed, Ben is in the state penitentiary with a cell mate, a man by the name of Harry Powell, a self-professed man of the cloth, who is really a con man and murderer, swindling lonely women, primarily rich widows, of their money before he kills them. Harry does whatever he can, unsuccessfully, to find out the location of the $10,000 from Ben. After Ben's execution, Harry decides that Willa will be his next mark, figuring that someone in the family knows where the money is hidden. Despite vowing not to remarry, Willa ends up being easy prey for Harry's outward ... Written by Huggo

Jakob'un yeni geldiği bir okulda ve çevrede kendi sosyal sınıfından olmayan insanları dikkatle gözlemleyip ayrı ayrı hepsinin davranışlarını irdelemesi, kişilikleri hakkında kendine göre isabetli yorumlarda bulunması ve daha da ileri giderek gelecekte nasıl bir konumda olacaklarına dair tahminlerde bulunmasını izleyen süreçte aynı zamanda kendi kimliğinin de yapılanmasını adım adım izliyoruz.

Plot: The book is a young man's inquisitive and irreverent account of life in what turns out to be the most uncanny of schools. It is the work of an outsider artist, a writer of uncompromising originality and disconcerting humor, whose beautiful sentences have the simplicity and strangeness of a painting by Henri Rousseau.

Plot : Jakob arrives at the Institute Benjamenta (run by brother and sister Johannes and Lisa Benjamenta) to learn to become a servant. With seven other men, he studies under Lisa: absurd lessons of movement, drawing circles, and servility. He asks for a better room. No other students arrive and none leave for employment. Johannes is unhappy, imperious, and detached from the school's operation. Lisa is beautiful, at first tightly controlled, then on the verge of breakdown. There's a whiff of incest. Jakob is drawn to Lisa, and perhaps she to him. As winter sets in, she becomes catatonic. Things get worse; Johannes notes that all this has happened since Jakob came. Is there any cause and effect?

Konu: Mezbaha 5'te, Dresden bombardımanı merkezinde bir zaman yolculuğuna çıkıyoruz.

Billy Pilgrim beceriksiz bir zaman gezgini; nereye gideceğini kontrol edemiyor ve seyahatleri eğlenceli falan geçmiyor.
Hayatının hangi kısmında kendini oynayacağını önceden bilemediğinden, sürekli sahne korkusu çektiğini söylüyor.

Billy Pilgrim bir savaş esiri. Güzel ve yaşanabilir bir kentin mahvına tanık oldu. Tanıdığı biri, başkasına ait bir demliği aldığı için vuruldu Dresden'de. Bir diğeri, şahsi düşmanlarını savaştan sonra kiralık katillere öldürteceği tehdidini sahiden savurdu.

Unutmayın: Hepsi yaşandı bunların. Aşağı yukarı. En azından savaş kısımları gerçek. (Tanıtım Bülteninden)

Plot : Using his own terminology, Billy Pilgrim is "unstuck in time", which means he is moving between different points in his life uncontrollably, although he is aware of it at certain of those points as witnessed by the letter to the editor he writes to the Ilium Daily News about his situation. Primarily, he is moving between three general time periods and locations. The first is his stint as a GI during WWII, when, as a pacifist, he was acting as a Chaplain's assistant for his unit. This time is largely as a POW, where he was in Dresden the day of the bombing, spending it with among others an older compassionate GI named Edgar Derby, and a brash loudmouth GI named Paul Lazzaro. The second is his life as an optometrist in Ilium in upstate New York, eventually married to the wealthy and overbearing Valencia Merble, and having two offspring, Robert, who would spend his teen-aged years as a semi-delinquent, and Barbara, who would end up much like her mother. And the third is as an abductee on... Written by Huggo
