‘The best Vonnegut novel yet!’ John Irving

‘Beautiful … provocative, arresting reading.’ USA Today

‘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 … Galápagos 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

Om forfatteren

Kurt Vonnegut was a master of contemporary American Literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Siren's of Titan in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" with Cat's Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers."

Kunders vurdering

B
Brakfink – 23.01.2007

– Kurt Vonneguts evne til å skildre dystre fremtidsversjoner som får oss til å riste av latter når nye høyder i denne boken. Menneskehetens største evolusjonsmessige feil, deres alt for store hjerner, fører dem til slutt til randen av utryddelse. En liten gruppe overlever om bord på et skip på vei mot Galapagos. En million år går stille forbi. Det enkle er som kjent ofte det beste, og som pelskledde, sellignende skapninger (som fortsatt ler av hverandre når de slipper en fjert) er fremtidens mennesker mye lykkeligere enn nåtidens, som sliter med sine alt for store hjerner. At historien fortelles av et en million år gammelt spøkelse gjør den ikke mindre interessant, og det er bare å applaudere den uanstrengte og humoristiske måten Vonnegut lar oss reflektere over dypt alvorlige tema.
