Description

Cat's Cradle is 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.

About the author

Kurt Vonnegut was a master of contemporary American Literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Siren's of Titan in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" with Cat's Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene has declared, "one of the best living American writers."

    Fucking amazing.
  • (5/5)
    OK. I read and fell in love with it in high school, but it is still a wonderful book about the self-destruction of man and his inanities. Dark humor.
  • (4/5)
    A book about innocent/naive men being capable of great destruction and the need to keep great weapons away from humans. Often bleakly humorous and a very enjoyable read.
