Publisher's Summary

The Sirens of Titan is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there's a catch to the invitation and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell.

As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Kurt Vonnegut's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Gay Talese about the life and work of Kurt Vonnegut – begins as soon as the audiobook ends.

This production is part of our Audible Modern Vanguard line, a collection of important works from groundbreaking authors.

©1959 Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (P)2008 Audible, Inc.

What the Critics Say

“Vonnegut is George Orwell, Dr. Caligari and Flash Gordon compounded into one writer . . . a zany but moral mad scientist.” (Time)

“His best book . . . He dares not only ask the ultimate question about the meaning of life, but to answer it.” (Esquire)

“Reading Vonnegut is addictive!” (Commonweal)

    "Fantastic"

    Vonnegut is an absolute master of storytelling. Witty, satiric, hilarious. This undoubtedly will be setting me down a Vonnegut rabbit hole

    "Vonnegut oh Vonnegut"

    I plan on reading every word you ever wrote.
    This, of course, is a satirical masterpiece that does not disappoint. Tragic, cynical, gritty...just how I like it. Our leaders, are just a bunch of asterisks.

    Story
    "Interesting message, but book lost me near end"
    What was most disappointing about Kurt Vonnegut’s story?

    I got the message, I was just lost by the delivery towards the end.


    Which character – as performed by Jay Snyder – was your favorite?

    Malakai Constant,


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    agreement. As I'm severly anti-establishment.


    Any additional comments?

    Cats cradle is a good book by Vonnegut, Similar in absurdity, but a more pragmatic background. This book was still interesting, but not my favorite from Vonnegut

    "Very Nice"

    Well read. Love his work. Interview at the end was ok. Should put more things like that on the end of these. Good idea.

    Story
    "...UNBELIEVABLE..."

    This novel was nothing short of absolutely amazing.

    I've known for a long while that Kurt Vonnegut was an extremely talented writer, but until this book, I had NO idea how much raw talent he possessed. Being an author myself, as I read Vonnegut, I see what I one day aim to become.

    Vonnegut's writing is almost like reading poetry. It seems as though each sentence was crafted with such care and thought that it is impressive standing on its own.His style is a perfect mix of genius, imagination, wit, comedy, & skill.

    An incredible experience.

    9.93 / 10.00

    "A well read classic"

    I read this book a few years ago and was excited to listen to it on audible since I remember loving it. It was just as good read aloud, if not better because it helped me pick up on idiosyncrasies of the writing that I may have missed otherwise.

    "Sharp and crisp as a pepper"

    I liked the narrators use of different tones per character.

    A pleasure to listen on my daily commute.

    "reads like vonnegut's debut effort"

    some good moments but not vonnegut's finest hour. the story wraps around a few points he's trying to make, but it feels a bit contrived, and this coming from someone that calls vonnegut his favorite author.
