--The New York Times Book Review

Gal?pagos takes the reader back one million years, to A.D. 1986. A simple vacation cruise suddenly becomes an evolutionary journey. Thanks to an apocalypse, a small group of survivors stranded on the Gal?pagos Islands are about to become the progenitors of a brave, new, and totally different human race. In this inimitable novel, America' s master satirist looks at our world and shows us all that is sadly, madly awry-and all that is worth saving.

Praise for Gal?pagos

"Beautiful . . . provocative, arresting reading."--USA Today

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

"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 . . . Gal?pagos 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"> --The New York Times Book Review
