Nice Vonnegut sampler
This is highly abridged and incomplete
If you've read the books already then this is great audio to hear Kurt Vonnegut talk about the books and about the story line briefly.
It would be more enjoyable if you were able to follow when one story stopped and the other began. I couldn't tell which story I was listening to and the stories were much summarized more than they were read line by line.
Kurt Vonnegut brings his own personal perspectives about each book rather than the books themselves. He even plays guitar and sings! This part is awesome. To get the authors point of view. However, if you download this audio file thinking you're going to hear the book, you are mistaken. It is Kurt reading some of the book and telling you about his experiences as an author surrounding those books.
The redeeming qualities were mentioned above in what Kurt brings to the book.
It should be noted somewhere in the description that this isn't really a reading of a book but more of Kurt Vonnegut's point of view as the author.
