The Sirens of Titan
“[Kurt Vonnegut’s] best book . . . He dares not only ask the ultimate question about the meaning of life, but to answer it.”—Esquire
Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
The Sirens of Titan is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there’ s a catch to the invitation–and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell.
“Reading Vonnegut is addictive!”—Commonweal
By far my favorite
This book will twist your view on life in ways you least expect. I could go on, but i’ll just sum it up and say - read it.
My favorite book of all time. A true classic. Philosophical sic-fi at its best!
By far better than the overrated Slaughterhouse Five. If you can read only one Vonnegut book, put this one at the top of the list.
