Introduction

Galápagos 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 Galápagos 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.

  "Science fiction with some interesting writing devices"by sklewis (see profile) 10/25/07

Vonnegut used several different devices in writing 'Galapagos'; those alone are good for discussion. A quick read with an interesting premise. Much different from our normal book club selection.
