Wonderful Journey To The End Of The World

Vonnegut's vision of the end of the world by the substance called Ice-9 is a poetic masterpiece in his own unique and darkly humorous style. Like strolling along and smelling beautiful flowers on the way to Armageddon. Wonderful.

Amazing book!!

Cat's Cradle is an amazing book, as well as one of Vonnegut's most popular and accessible works. Vonnegut tackles such abstract issues as human psychology, Armageddon-esque scientific discoveries, religion, and much more, all while maintaining a dark humor. If you like Vonnegut's other books, or books such as Catch-22, you will probably like this book.
