Cat's Cradle Chapter 95 Summary

I See the Hook

  • Care to take a guess what happens in this chapter?
  • John and Frank drive up to the castle built by Tum-bumwa all that time ago.
  • Just before they reach the castle, they see the hook hanging in the middle of two telephone poles. A sign proclaims this hook is reserved for Bokonon.
  • John tells himself he'll be a kind and decent ruler.
  • In case you're curious how that turns out, the chapter ends with the word mirage.
