"One of Kurt Vonnegut’s most continuously inventive and delightfully complex novels," Cat’s Cradle "makes a mockery of science, religion, patriotism, sex—everything; and it concludes in the only way it possibly can, with the End of the World" (Science Fiction 100 Best). Chosen by Modern Library as one of the best 100 novels of the 20th century.
