Cat's Cradle

Cat's Cradle - Kurt Vonnegut I think I expected this to be as great as Galapagos. It's similar in that the apocalypse comes when the protagonist of the story is on a an island. It has an interesting premise in which the inventor of the atomic bomb creates an apocalypse from beyond the grave with an invention other than the atomic bomb. But I have to say that I really didn't care about the storyline or the characters by the end of the novel. There were a few silly lines here or there, but really nothing great. If this were a novel written by an obscure author rather than a well-known author like Vonnegut, I think this book would have gathered much dust over the years.
