1 Kurt Vonnegut Jr Cats Cradle 2 Cats Cradle is about the narrator who is trying to find out exactly what happened the day that the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima He interviews Felix Hoenikkers the father of the atom bomb children and others who knew him He makes a great discovery which later leads to the freezing of all of the lakes and rivers in the world 3 This book had a couple major themes These include religion new inventions and the atomic bomb I believe that the theme which was most important for me was the religion theme I think that at this age everybody is trying to find themselves trying to figure out who they are and just what they believe in This narrator of this book tells how he went from a Christian to a Bokonist He describes his religion throughout the book which I found was very interesting He says things which they believe such as the thought that everything happens for a reason Ive always believe that He also talks about how they touch feet to come together and says a lot of poems from his religion which are quite meaningful I believe that the theme of new inventions is most important for this age We are constantly trying to make new things and we really dont know if being so technologically advanced will help or hinder us In the book the invention of Ice-9 a supposed useful substance ended up being the exact thing which killed everything I think that this is important for us to read about because that sort of thing could happen to us too 4 I really enjoyed how the author told this story He put in great detail to each event such as his descriptions of the children the six foot tall unmarriable beanpole daughter or the small angry midget I really enjoyed when the narrator talked about Bokonon
