So much has been written and discussed about this novel over the years that it's hard to come up with anything new. So I'll be brief:
- This book is just as powerful to listen to as it is to read.
- Ethan Hawke does an excellent job as a reader. This audio book is worth the price just for the subtle vocal punch he gives to "So it goes."
- Immediately after the book, there's a short interview with Vonnegut, followed in turn by a performance piece in which Vonnegut reads a short excerpt from the book accompanied by music and storm effects. This is interesting -- but there should have been a gap (1-2 seconds would have been enough) between the end of Hawke's reading and the start of the interview.
This is a powerful story read by a subtly powerful narrator. I highly recommend it.
