Love Vonnegut but the narration is brutally bad -had to stop listening and was so bummed.
Loved Ethan Hawke doing Slaughterhouse, but run from this one and read the book.
He was awful.
I enjoyed the book and was glad I listened on audio. The interview with Vonnegut at the end was a delightful bonus. I've not read the print version so can't really make a comparison.
Follow me on Goodreads too!
I resent the implication that this is a book for people who like to think. I like to think, to learn, to read… but I just didn’t like this book.
I just happen to like my storylines presented in a more straightforward way, that’s all. The Bigger Picture of this book just went right over my head.
I nearly returned the book while getting through the first third of the books, and even after that I can't say I was super interested in it. It lacked a lot of Vonnegut's usual charm. The narrator was dull and certainly didn't help. Perhaps in a year or two I'll come back to it again.
cat's cradle is one of my all-time favorite english-language novels. However the narrator on this recording seems to have very poor sense comedic timing and has never heard calypso music.
Kurt Vonnegut is now my favorite author. Now required reading for my son and hopefully his son or daughter.
