Novel Week - Galapagos

What it is:  Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut ($10)
Who it’s for:  People who like Vonnegut but only know the famous stuff, People who like weird, apocalyptic, sci fi stories.      
Where to get it:  Amazon
Why it's yay:  A ghost narrator tells the weirdly epic story of how humans evolved on the Galapagos Islands after disease wiped out everyone on the mainland in 1986.  Not the obvious Vonnegut choice but one of my favorites.
