by | Read by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1979

Because of the intricacy of the ideas, the convolution of the plots, and the irony of the themes, Kurt Vonnegut is probably the only narrator who could do justice to these selections from SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE, WELCOME TO THE MONKEY HOUSE, BREAKFAST OF CHAMPTIONS and CAT’S CRADLE. His intonation, reflective tone and strategic pauses help the listener appreciate his creative style. He delivers his writing with wry humor and an “ironic drone,” which are characteristic of both his speech and work. His voice is clear, slow and somewhat deliberate. His satire and innuendo are so familiar to him that they cannot be lost in his narration. D.D.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 96]
