Publisher's Summary

Galapagos takes the listener back one million years to AD 1986. A simple vacation cruise suddenly becomes an evolutionary journey. Thanks to an apocalypse, a small group of survivors stranded on the Galapagos Islands are about to become the progenitors of a brave, new, totally different human race.
Kurt Vonnegut, America's master satirist, looks at our world and shows us all that is sadly, madly awry - and all that is worth saving.
As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Kurt Vonnegut's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview - where James Atlas interviews Gay Talese about the life and work of Kurt Vonnegut - begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

Good concept

I remembered seeing this book for sale in print many years ago and was particularly intrigued the cover. However, the concept, whilst still intrigueing just wasn't strong enough to sustain an entire novel, it felt like a short story stretched and stretched out. On the plus side, the narrator was good and the characters were plausible.

Not as well known as his others, but this is a fantastic Vonnegut audiobook. Had me chuckling away and pondering the meaning of it all...
