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.

“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)
love it! Chronosynclastic infindibulum fantastic~ I have always tried reading the book but failed to finish. Now I'm ready to relisten with the book itself. Love Vonnegut :) Such a good read. Reminds me how fragile and precious life is!
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.
I got the message, I was just lost by the delivery towards the end.
agreement. As I'm severly anti-establishment.
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

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.

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.
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.
