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.

From the Publisher:

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.

"A free-wheeling vehicle.... An unforgettable ride!" -- The New York Times.

"Vonnegut's most accomplished novel." -- Books And Bookman

Descrizione libro Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. With his trademark dry wit, Kurt Vonnegut s Cat s Cradle is an inventive science fiction satire that preys on our deepest fears of witnessing Armageddon - and, worse still, surviving it. This Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Benjamin Kunkel. Dr Felix Hoenikker, one of the founding fathers of the atomic bomb, has left a deadly legacy to humanity. For he is the inventor of ice-nine, a lethal chemical capable of freezing the entire planet. Writer Jonah s search for his whereabouts leads him to Hoenikker s three eccentric children, to an island republic in the Caribbean where the absurd religion of Bokononism is practised, to love and to insanity. Told with deadpan humour and bitter irony, Kurt Vonnegut s cult tale of global destruction is a frightening and funny satire on the end of the world and the madness of mankind. Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) was born in Indianapolis. During the Second World War he was a prisoner in Germany and present at the bombing of Dresden, an experience he recounted in his famous novel Slaughterhouse Five (1969). His first novel, Player Piano, was published in 1951 and since then he has written many novels, including The Sirens of Titan, Jailbird, Deadeye Dick, Galapagos and Hocus Pocus. If you enjoyed Cat s Cradle, you might like Philip K. Dick s The Man in the High Castle, also available in Penguin Modern Classics. One of the warmest, wisest, funniest voices to be found anywhere in fiction Sam Leith, Daily Telegraph A free-wheeling vehicle .An unforgettable ride! The New York Times Vonnegut looked the world straight in the eye and never flinched J.G. Ballard. Codice libro della libreria APG9780141189345
