A hilarious and enjoyable book that is nevertheless thematically complex and has a timeless quality. Though a short novel written during the height of cold war madness, Cat's Cradle continues to be relevant and funny--and a must read for Vonnegut fans. This was my second reading and I have to say that I gleaned more the second time around. Thought provoking passages about religion and science, truth and fiction, and the nature of belief. All delivered with Vonnegut's trademark irony and moments of stunning moral clarity. Absolutely recommended for cynics and idealists alike.
