Galapagos takes the reader back one million years, to A.D. 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, and totally different human race. In this inimitable novel, America's master satirist looks at our world and shows us all that is sadly, madly awry-and all that is worth saving.
by Kurt Vonnegut
"The renowned Kurt Vonnegut, creator of some of the wildest and most imaginative stories ever put to paper, created an instant classic in 1985, when he wrote this remarkable book. Set in 1986, the post-apocalyptic story takes place on the Galapagos Islands, where tourists repopulate the earth with a bizarre race of creatures. Narrator Jonathan Davis does an outstanding job in this reading, capturing the essence of Vonnegut's prose--the cruel sense of humor and the visionary idealism--in a believable performance that invites repeated listens. Davis's intimate reading will transport listeners to another time and place, endlessly layered and fascinating. L.B. 2009 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
