The Sirens of Titan is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side.

Then the number of twists started to pile up and my mind quickly changed. The Sirens of Titan is easil...
