  • "Een journalist schrijft een boek over de 'vader van de bom' en ontdekt een nog dodelijke erfenis: ICE-9."
  • "Vědeckofantastický román s prvky kritiky americké demokracie a zahraniční politiky vypráví o hazardní hře diktátora na jednom z ostrovů v Karibském moři, který se zmocnil vynálezu, jímž lze zmrazit vše živé na zeměkouli."

  • "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 futuristic tale when the world learns about a new religion, Bokononism, and ice-nine, which can set off a chain reaction more deadly than nuclear fission."@en
  • ""In this mordant satire on religion, research, government, and human nature, a free-lance writer becomes the catalyst in a chain of events that unearths the secret of ice-nine. This is an element potentially more lethal than that produced by nuclear fission. The search leads to a mythical island, San Lorenzo, where the writer also discovers the leader of a new religion, Bokonon." Shapiro. Fic for Youth. 2d edition. *** "In the year 2000, a young man discovers ice-nine, which can set off a chain reaction more deadly than a nuclear bomb, and a new prophet whose teachings sweep the world.""@en

  • "Cat's Cradle, one of Vonnegut's most entertaining novels, is filled with scientists and G-men and even ordinary folks caught up in the game. These assorted characters chase each other around in search of the world's most important and dangerous substance, a new form of ice that freezes at room temperature. At one time, this novel could probably be found on the bookshelf of every college kid in America; it's still a fabulous read and a great place to start if you're young enough to have missed the first Vonnegut craze."
