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.

From the Trade Paperback edition.


  • I Loved this book...

    By Sebaj1891
    At the age of seventeen. At thirty-three, I found it very challenging to keep reading. I wonder what changed?
  • Cat's Cradle Comment

    By William Jochum
    What a circular cat's cradle full of a bunch of Bokonon's. I have 5932 characters left to describe this book, but it's better if you read it rather than its Wikipedia plot, so you understand the CCC world full of OG's and OP's.
  • The mystery of Bokononism

    By AwwwwYeahGirlMLG
    This book is a fantastic piece of literature. It is, at some parts, difficult to understand. You have to think deeply about some of the quotes from Bokonon and you realize their deeper meaning. Overall an excellent book.

    Love the honesty & lies in this book! If I was such a writer as the author of this book I would have something profound to it is, I am not. But what a treat to have encountered this book. I am forever grateful.
