Catís Cradle is Kurt Vonnegutís satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planetís 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, Catís Cradle is one of the twentieth centuryís most important worksóand Vonnegut at his very best.

Kurt Vonnegut was a master of contemporary American literature. His black humor, satiric voice, and incomparable imagination first captured America's attention in The Sirens of Titan in 1959 and established him as "a true artist" with Cat's Cradle in 1963. He was, as Graham Greene declared, "one of the best living American writers.Ē Mr. Vonnegut passed away in April 2007.

  • Kurt Vonnegut

    Needless to say, if Kurt Vonnegut wrote it, it'll probably change your life in at least one way. This is a great novel, full of creative wit and a brilliant blend of science fiction and satire. Highly recommended.

    The book was written a while ago so some history has changed but is still a good story

    This is one of my favorite books by Kurt Vonnegut. It keeps you wanting to read more, I had a hard time putting the book down when I had something else to do.

  • Get this book.Although it was written about forty years years ago it has valuable insights into today's broken world.Vonnegut's odd and brilliant perceptions were way ahead of his time.The humor is satirical and biting and hilarious.There is much to be gained by exposing yourself to this perspective......
