"A madcap genealogical adventure . . . Vonnegut is a postmodern Mark Twain."--The New York Times Book Review

"A satire in the classic tradition . . . a dark vision, a heartfelt warning."--The Detroit Free Press

"Interesting, engaging, sad and yet very funny . . . Vonnegut is still in top form. If he has no prescription for alleviating the pain of the human condition, at least he is a first-rate diagnostician."--Susan Isaacs, Newsday

"Dark . . . original and funny."--People

"A triumph of style, originality and warped yet consistent logic . . . a condensation, an evolution of Vonnegut's entire career, including all the issues and questions he has pursued relentlessly for four decades."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Wild details, wry humor, outrageous characters . . . Galapagos is a comic lament, a sadly ironic vison."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A work of high comedy, sadness and imagination."--The Denver Post

"Wacky wit and irreverent imagination . . . and the full range of technical innovations have made [Vonnegut] America's preeminent experimental novelist."--The Minneapolis Star and Tribune

From the Back Cover:

Long, long ago, as he researched into the origin of species, Charles Darwin had been inspired by the creatures of the Galapagos. Now, a million years on, the new inhabitants of the islands – the human survivors of the 'Nature Cruise of the Century' – have quietly evolved into sleek, furry creatures with flippers, and small brains. All other forms of humankind have ceased to exist, finally made redundant by their own inventions.

All that survives of their Big-Brain Culture is contained in Mandarax, a tiny electronic marvel which can recall any one of twenty thousand popular quotations from world literature, as well as translate among a thousand languages. Unfortunately Mandarax doesn't understand Kanka-Bono, the language of the cannibals who have arrived to 'look after' the new humanity...

"'Galapagos' is Vonnegut's funniest and maddest book in years."
TIME OUT

"'Galapagos' is clever, extremely entertaining, cordially balancing on the knife edge of blackness and never falling off."
GUARDIAN

"Vonnegut's best novel since 'Slaughterhouse 5'"
MARTIN AMIS,' Observer'
