Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
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. A book that left  an indelible mark on an entire generation of  readers. Cat's Cradle is one of this  century's most important works... and Vonnegut at  his very best.

Review:
Cat's Cradle, one of Vonnegut's most entertaining novels, is filled with scientists and G-men and even ordinary folks caught up in the game. These assorted characters chase each other around in search of the world's most important and dangerous substance, a new form of ice that freezes at room temperature. At one time, this novel could probably be found on the bookshelf of every college kid in America; it's still a fabulous read and a great place to start if you're young enough to have missed the first Vonnegut craze.
