Description
Long, long ago, as he researched into the origin of species, Charles Darwin was inspired by observing the creatures of the Galápagos. A million years on, the new inhabitants—distant descendants of the last fertile humans on earth, who arrived on the island by chance in 1986 aboard the "Nature Cruise of the Century"—have evolved into sleek, seal-like creatures with small brains. All that survives of Big-Brain human culture is contained in Mandarax, a tiny electronic marvel that can recall 20,000 popular quotations from world literature, and translate a thousand languages. Unfortunately Mandarax doesn't understand Kanka-Bono, the language of the cannibals who have arrived to "look after" the new humanity. Published in 1985, Galápagos was hailed as "[Kurt] Vonnegut's funniest and maddest book in years" (Time Out).
