Gripping narrative and masterfully presented. What a wonderful way to begin the gothic genre. Enjoy!

Great story, great narrator. Definitely worth a listen. You can't go wrong with a Stephen King book.

One of my favorite lectures in the Great Courses series. There's so much material in these lectures! Get ready to bookmark!

Loved every minute. The lecturer takes incredibly dense material and makes it understandable and accessible to laymen while avoiding boring those with stronger backgrounds in the field of MES.I listened on my daily bus rides and before going to bed, although the lecturer's story-telling ability and his way of presenting the material often kept me from falling asleep. I only wish this course were longer than 12 hours.

Where does Player Piano rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Vonnegut will always rank highly regardless of the medium.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The disillusioned kid who Paul meets at the Meadows...or the Shah.

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

Not that I know of. Chris did well. I was able to follow along easily, and his pace and inflection was not jarring or distracting.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Humans: Please replace us.

Any additional comments?

READ ALL THE VONNEGUT!

i thoroughly enjoyed this book. incredibly informative, great context, analysis of the man and his behavior. I wanted to know why so many people idolize the man Che and why so many people hate him. this book absolutely helped me to form an educated opinion on Che.
