Show Synopsis

'Vonnegut looked the world straight in the eye and never flinched' J. G. Ballard This bitterly funny Cold War satire on the end of the world expresses our deepest fears of Armageddon, and has become a counter-culture classic. 'A satirist with a heart, a moralist with a whoopee cushion' Jay McInerney 'The closest thing we had to a Voltaire' Tom Wolfe 'The time to read Vonnegut is just when you begin to suspect that the world is not what it appears to be. He is not only entertaining, he is electrocuting' The New York Times

Wonderful Journey To The End Of The World

Vonnegut's vision of the end of the world by the substance called Ice-9 is a poetic masterpiece in his own unique and darkly humorous style. Like strolling along and smelling beautiful flowers on the way to Armageddon. Wonderful.

Amazing book!!

Cat's Cradle is an amazing book, as well as one of Vonnegut's most popular and accessible works. Vonnegut tackles such abstract issues as human psychology, Armageddon-esque scientific discoveries, religion, and much more, all while maintaining a dark humor. If you like Vonnegut's other books, or books such as Catch-22, you will probably like this book.
