The global market collapses just as “The Nature Cruise of the Century” is set to launch. The few registrants who do make it onto the ship end up being the last humans on Earth.
Galápagos is a delightful dystopian tale. Vonnegut’s dry and dark humor shines over the course of the book as you wonder what’s going to happen to the “fortunate” survivors of a doomed earth. Vonnegut asks the reader if our evolved superior intellect is actually beneficial to our survival.
