    Story
    (8)

    Eliot Rosewater, a drunk volunteer fireman and president of the fabulously rich Rosewater Foundation, is about to attempt a noble experiment with human nature, with a little help from writer Kilgore Trout. The result is Kurt Vonnegut's funniest satire, an etched-in-acid portrayal of the greed, hypocrisy, and follies of the flesh we are all heir to.

    Would you listen to God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater again? Why?

    I will absolutely listen to this story again. It was my favorite Vonnegut story long before I listened to it on Audible. I have read it many times, and have quickly converted into Vonnegut fans by suggesting that they listen to this particularly short and sweet novel. I swear to you, listen and enjoy. You won't fine a more enjoyable character anywhere else in literature. Honestly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater?

    I am still trying my damnedest to catch flies with a cup of soapy water. It's worth the effort.


    Have you listened to any of Eric Michael Summerer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. This was my first. Won't be my last. Well done!


    If you could rename God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater, what would you call it?

    God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater


    Any additional comments?

    Putting this book on sale is the best thing Audible can do for its listeners.
