Traumatized by the bombing of Dresden at the time he had been imprisoned, Pilgrim drifts through all events and history, sometimes deeply implicated, sometimes a witness. He is surrounded by Vonnegut's usual large cast of continuing characters (notably here the hack science fiction writer Kilgore Trout and the alien Tralfamadorians, who oversee his life and remind him constantly that there is no causation, no order, no motive to existence).

I love this book!! it's sad and it's sweet, and It's brilliantly mad!

The performance of James Franco leaves a little to be desired. Some if his choices for pronunciation of certain words hit my ears in a strange way.

Overall I was very pleased with this audio book.
