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 this century's most important works...and Vonnegut at his very best.

I have never read anti-utopia story like this. Truly authentic. It's very powerful how Vonnegut talk about serious social issues using very simple language constructions.
Tony Roberts has made this book even more enjoyable by the way he vocalizes each character.
And bonus interview with the author in the end is very interesting.
