Didsbury Book Group

We talk about them too ! If you like to talk about what you've read, then please join us — new members are very welcome. We meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm.

There's a meeting every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's all very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

Cat's Cradle — Kurt Vonnegut


Book cover for Cat's Cradle in Didsbury book group

Dr Felix Hoenikker, one of the founding fathers of the atomic bomb, has left a deadly legacy to humanity. For he is the inventor of ice—nine, a lethal chemical capable of freezing the entire planet. Writer Jonah's search for his whereabouts leads him to Hoenikker's three eccentric children, to an island republic in the Caribbean where the absurd religion of Bokononism is practised, to love and to insanity.

This week's book is Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle.

We'll be meeting at The Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury.
