Publisher's Summary

According to Kurt Vonnegut's alter ego, the old science fiction writer Kilgore Trout, a global timequake will occur on February 13, 2001, at 2:27 p.m. It will be the moment when the universe suffers a crisis of conscience: Should it go on expanding indefinitely or collapse and make another great big BANG? For its own cosmic reasons, it decides to back up a decade to 1991, giving the world a 10-year case of deja vu, making everybody and everything do exactly what they'd done during the past decade - for good or ill - a second time.

As a character in and a brilliant chronicler of this bizarre event, Kurt Vonnegut casts his wicked wit and his unique perspective on life as he's lived it and observed it for more than 70 years.

    "* Fantastic *"

    This book was SUCH a joy to listen to. The narrator did a great job of bringing Vonnegut's words come to life.

    Kurt Vonnegut is easily one of my all-time favorite authors. This book is a perfect example of his genius. The book expertly wavers between a work of fiction and an autobiography.

    I don't actually have much to say about this book aside from the fact that it was absolutely fantastic. It REALLY is a must-own for any fan of Vonnegut. Actually, even if you're not familiar with Vonnegut, it is still a must-own.

    Although I give this book an EASY five stars, I still enjoyed Breakfast of Champions, (another book by Vonnegut), just a tad more. BUT - I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than the author's most famous books, "Slaughter House 5" and "Cat's Cradle". Why this book isn't more well known baffles me.

    BUY THIS BOOK NOW.

    What disappointed you about Timequake?

    This is a book about absolutly nothing. I was very excited about the premise of a "Timequake" and there were so many places that the story could have gone. I am sorely disappointed that the Author didn't have much of an imagination about where this could have gone.


    Has Timequake turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Arthur Bishop’s performance did you like?

    Very well read.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I will be returning this title.
