Cat's Cradle Chapter 23 Summary

The Last Batch of Brownies

  • But Dr. Breed was wrong about one thing. Ice-nine is very real.
  • Dr. Hoenikker did create a small supply of the stuff but didn't leave any records leading to its creation.
  • Oh, and its melting point was 114-degrees Fahrenheit.

  • When Hoenikker died on Christmas Eve, his three children split the ice-nine among themselves.
