Cat's Cradle Chapter 98 Summary

Last Rites

  • So John gets to see these last rites he's heard so much about.
  • Dr. Koenigswald agrees to perform the rites despite not being a Bokononist.
  • He says it makes him a "bad scientist [but he] will do anything to make a human being feel better, even if it's unscientific" (98.7). More power to you, doc.
  • He climbs into the boat with "Papa" Monzano. The two perform boko-maru. The rites have begun.
