This is a crazy story where the past, present, and future are all told at the same time...as you find out what is happening now, you know what is going to happen, but you're still learning why and how. There's a little bit of silliness and a little bit of social commentary. I don't want to write much about the plot, but it involves politics, money, technology, tourism to the Galapagos Islands (which of course brings evolution into the mix), and the end of mankind as we know it. How's that for a teaser? This is a quirky, fantastical book I liked reading. It takes a little bit of time to get oriented in the story. If you're a Vonnegut fan you'll notice a nod to some of his other work (a connection to another character).
