Kurt Vonnegut is such a refreshing read, every time. The social commentary laden throughout his books adds layers of enjoyment, and the frankness of the voice within the text portrays his frank sense of humor quite well. I think I laughed audibly multiple times while reading this book, and would recommend it for anyone with a decent sense of humor.

This is the first Vonnegut book I have read and I absolutely loved it! His writing style is witty and thought provoking, using a lot of peculiar words I was unfamiliar with. He interjects history, science, and science fiction into this book. As a science geek, Galapagos was an amazing look into the future (or at least Vonnegut's vision of the future) and how the role of modern humans played a part in shaping the future of our species; a very different future than I suspect the average Homo sapiens envisions. I look forward to reading more from him.
