I love satire. Vonnegut is possibly the best author who combines satirical commentary on humanity with his unique blend of humor and a fantastically absurd fantasy world. Some moments were laugh out loud in a terrifying sense, and makes you wonder how you’ve ever lived as a human being so naively before. A great read.
Cat’s Cradle is Kurt 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 the twentieth century’s most important works—and Vonnegut at his very best.
