Kurt Vonnegut was a writer, lecturer and painter. He was born in Indianapolis in 1922 and studied biochemistry at Cornell University. During WWII, as a prisoner of war in Germany, he witnessed the destruction of Dresden by Allied bombers, an experience which inspired Slaughterhouse Five. First published in 1950, he went on to write fourteen novels, four plays, and three short story collections, in addition to countless works of short fiction and nonfiction. He died in 2007.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Siren Song, But No Depth: Kurt Vonnegut’s The Sirens Of Titan
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 12, 2022
This one should have been a home run. I love Kurt Vonnegut’s writing, and one of his novels, Cat’s Cradle, has made a huge impact on my own writing. I eagerly purchased this book because of several glowing reviews from friends on FaceBook. “It’s pure science fiction!” they told me. “You will love it!”
So when I finally had the book in my hands and started to flip through the pages, I was expecting greatness. What I found instead was a story that never connected. It was like having a luxury room at a beach-side hotel, with an over-sized picture window that is covered by a curtain. You know there’s something special waiting on the other side, but you can’t see it with the drapes in the way.
That’s how this novel went from me. I kept waiting for that big connection, that rush of insight into Vonnegut’s characters and the world he was building, and it never came. There was an incredible amount of build-up, manufactured quotes that opened each chapter, a story about a business tycoon and a soldier on Mars, and it all led nowhere. All smarm, no substance.
In the end the main character remembers nothing, and that was as close as we came to a meeting of the minds. After over 300 pages there wasn’t a single thing that stood out to me that had happened in the story. The words just swept over me, beautiful at times, but never meaningful enough to draw me in.
