Publisher Description

“A free-wheeling vehicle . . . an unforgettable ride!”—The New York Times 

Cat’s Cradle
is Kurt Vonnegut’s satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet’s ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist, a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer, and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat’s Cradle is one of the twentieth century’s most important works—and Vonnegut at his very best.

“[Vonnegut is] an unimitative and inimitable social satirist.”—Harper’s Magazine

“Our finest black-humorist . . . We laugh in self-defense.”—Atlantic Monthly

Cat's Cradle

What a wonderful book. With the wit of "A Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court", the mystique of "Alice in Wonderland", and the far-off otherworldly aura of "Gulliver's Travels", Vonnegut takes the reader to a magical place, a fun and entertaining place, where one may just become a little bit wiser. A good read!

Cats cradle

This book was very hard to read, it was all over the place and I could not keep track of it. After 17 chapters I had enough.
This book was not for me. It’s gone.
