    Called “our finest black-humorist” by The Atlantic Monthly, Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Now his first and last works come together for the first time in print, in a collection aptly titled after his famous phrase, We Are What We Pretend To Be.

    Robert says: "Not a place to start."
    "Fantastic Vonnegut"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. It is amazing to see where he went throughout his life and career. To hear his first book and his last book together is like having a glimpse into how he grew over the years.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed following Vonnegut's changing style and view of the world.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've not heard any other performances by any of the narrators but I thought they were all excellent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were two stories. The end of the first story was extremely heartening. The end of the second story was like bringing everything home. It was great for closure.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an excellent book. Any fans of Kurt Vonnegut would be wise to buy it!
