Dies war das erste Buch, was ich von Vonnegut gelesen habe, und es wird ganz sicher nicht bei diesem bleiben (Slaughterhouse-Five habe ich mir dann auch gleich danach gekauft, auch klasse). So einen abgefahrenen, witzigen, mit ausgefallenen Charakteren und derart vielen Wendungen in der Geschichte bestückten Roman habe ich seit der "Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis"-Saga nicht mehr in die Finger bekommen. Wo wir auch gleich beim Punkt wären: Wenn Douglas Adams diesen Klassiker von 1959 nicht mindestens dreimal gelesen hat, bevor er anfing zu schreiben, weiß ich auch nicht mehr weiter...

Vonneguts 'The Sirens of Titan' is an underrated masterpiece in his extensive catalog of material. More frolicking than his later works, this book takes the reader across the solar system in a delightful foray into parody and satire. Unlike his sometimes obvious - dare I say heavyhanded - novels that came later, Sirens remains fairly subtle and always witty throughout.
A *MUST READ* for Vonnegut fans, or just casual readers looking for something to dig their teeth into. Certainly one of Vonneguts three best.

the sirens of titan is perhaps the best book written by vonnegut, or by any other human being in the history of this world. his message is at once deep and hilarious and unsettling. he presents you with a lighning bolt that shocks you into consciousness. he moves you to tears and leaves you wondering, what's gonna happen next? my favorite book of all time, as you must have guessed, along with slaughterhouse five. vonnegut should have been the president of the united states. his vision is unique.

Is exhibited perfectly in this wonderful book, that not only reaches into the reader's mind, but also their very being.
Never before has a man so accurately portrayed the irony and absurdity of humanity as a whole. With constant twists and turns in the stories, you will find yourself confused at times, but ultimately happy to read the ending because it seems as though you, yourself, have been added to...the book will not only astound you it will EXPLAIN you.

Not only is this the best vonnegut I have ever read, it is the best book period. the depth of this novel is enough to satisfy any hardcore reader and the humor and story will delight a fan of humorous books and science fiction. To me this and cats cradle serve as best vehicles to deliver his favorite themes all the rest are just footnotes to these remarkable books, therefore this book is a great start for somebody wanting to start reading vonnegut. Watch out- you will get hooked!

Kurt Vonnegut is by light years my favorite author. I think he is the greatest man who ever lived. I first read "The Sirens of Titan" four years ago and since then I have read it three more times. This is one of his greatest novels in my opinion, up there with "The Cat's Cradle" and "Slaughter House-Five". I've been reading his books for the past six years over and over again. I do think he is a master of the English language.

This could possible be my favorite novel of all time. Definitley my favorite of Vonnegut thus far. The science fiction elements, the worldly undertones, Vonnegut's trademark style all twist together to form this unmatched work of art. It reads like a movie, so visual it's scary. The characters are unforgettable and the adventure is even more so. A true genius is Vonnegut, and this book proves it again. If I could give it more stars, I would.

This is the greatest novel ever written. It answers the age old question about the meaning of life in a deep yet comedic manner. Dont be fooled by the science fiction pretense, it's a book everyone will enjoy. If you like to have fun that also makes you think, this book is for you! I also reccomend "Mother Night" and of course "Slaughterhouse Five". Thank you Kurt!

I have read every Vonngeut book written. I have to say this book covers every Vonnegut-esque subject somehow, although vaguely. From an execution on Mars, to the search for a way off Mercury, to finally finding the true meaning of life, KV has accomplished this. I HIGHLY recommend this book over Slaughter or Cat's, although both are 5 star books as well. Overall, a masterpiece.

Be prepared for a rocket ride - not just through the overrated regions of space/time, but through the very fabric of the human condition in its need to believe in something "bigger" than itself asserting influence over the universe. 'Sirens' provides compelling, if somewhat comical, doubts strong enough to rattle the most stalwart of faiths. An incredible ride!
