I was a late comer to Vonnegut. I wasn't introduced to him until a couple years after college. I also started at the end, with Man Without a Country and began working my way backward. Cat's Cradle is an amazing social commentary and frighteningly plausible. This is easily one of my top 5 books of all time.

This is the BEST book. I don't like "science fiction" but this is nothing like you've read. If you're already a Kurt Vonnegut fan, you know what I mean. I LOVE this author!

This novel, filled with a variety of bizarre but all-too-human characters, focuses primarily on the ironic legacy of modern science, which, according to Vonnegut, promises mankind progress but only hastens the cataclysmic end of the world.

Cats Cradle is engrossing from the first chapter to the final page. The chapters are short (most are less than two pages in length) which allows the reader to fly through the book, even if its read in short bits.

The fictional story revolves around folklore and personal accounts of those who knew the late creator of the atomic bomb. A sobering topic, but Vonnegut manages to create situations with refreshing humor, satire and imagination.
