Galapagos

Kurt Vonnegut

From the author of Slaughterhouse 5.

The human survivors of the nature cruise of the century, are quietly evolving into sleek, furry creatures with flippers and small brains. All other forms of humankind have ceased to exist, made redundant by their prized big brains.

Reviews of Galapagos

    • ‘The best Vonnegut novel yet!’ John Irving
    • ‘Beautiful … provocative, arresting reading.’ USA Today
    • ‘A madcap genealogical adventure … Vonnegut is a postmodern Mark Twain.’ The New York Times Book Review
    • ‘A satire in the classic tradition … a dark vision, a heartfelt warning.’ The Detroit Free Press
    • ‘Interesting, engaging, sad and yet very funny … Vonnegut is still in top form. If he has no prescription for alleviating the pain of the human condition, at least he is a first-rate diagnostician.’ Susan Isaacs, Newsday
    • ‘Dark … original and funny.’ People
    • ‘A triumph of style, originality and warped yet consistent logic … a condensation, an evolution of Vonnegut’s entire career, including all the issues and questions he has pursued relentlessly for four decades.’ The Philadelphia Inquirer
    • ‘Wild details, wry humor, outrageous characters … Galápagos is a comic lament, a sadly ironic vison.’ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
    • ‘A work of high comedy, sadness and imagination.’ The Denver Post
    • ‘Wacky wit and irreverent imagination … and the full range of technical innovations have made [Vonnegut] America’s preeminent experimental novelist.’ The Minneapolis Star and Tribune
