Have you ever wanted to hear the dulcet tones of James Franco's melodious voice reading the words of Kurt Vonnegut directly into your ear-holes? Well, good news, human zoo fans: on November 3, Audible is officially releasing "Slaughterhouse-Five" as an audio book.
Oh, and James Franco is reading the classic sci-fi novel, in case that wasn't clear.
For those of you who don't remember reading the book, "Slaughterhouse-Five" is Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.'s masterpiece. It's ostensibly about a World War II vet who has become "unstuck in time," hopping throughout his life from the war, to his time in an alien zoo. It's funny, weird, controversial and has captivated generations of readers -- including, it would seem, Franco.
Audible's collection of Vonnegut has already kicked off, including "Breakfast of Champions" read by John Malkovich because sure, why not. But with the addition of Franco's "Slaughterhouse-Five," the collection will expand exponentially, joined by recordings of "Jailbird," "Slapstick," "Wampeters, Foma & Granfalloons" and "Fates Worse Than Death."
As mentioned, you won't be able to get the recording until November 3 -- it's available for pre-order now -- but until then, you can check out an exclusive snippet below:
