Well what are you waiting for? This isn't Ulysses you know it's short and funny So now that it's just us people who know the book I want to say why I disagree with the criticism you often see that it's too fragmentary On the contrary I think it's very focused and makes its point with near perfect economy and wit There are two obvious themes One is how the irresponsible use of science to construct ever deadly weapons is probably going to end up destroying the whole world The other is a wonderfully crazy take on religion Each of these themes is satisfying in its own right what's less clear is that they have anything to do with each other Let's look at the first theme Vonnegut's scarily plausible thesis is that it won't be a question of some madman destroying the world on purpose I love General

    Epub Kurt Vonnegut Jr #192; Cat's Cradle PDF #181; #192; cat's kindle, cradle book, Cat's Cradle PDFVonnegut's best? Many will say that it is and who am I to disagree It does include all the best elements of Vonnegut in his genius humor dark and subtle and sometimes not subtle at all irreverence absurdity blended with realism to create a surrealistic setting where the reader is cautiously intrigued by whatever is going on And the messages and themes of love relationships responsibility both internally and globally Also like several of his endearing works this one remains thought provoking years after being read a quasi morality play that the reader will revisit often and sometimes with little coaxing 2018 addendum it is a testament to great literature that a reader recalls the work years later and this is a book about which I frequently think The great takeaway from this one is not so much ice nine although that is certainly memorable but Bokonon and most speci
