5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the effort, 6 Feb 2004
This review is from: His Master's Voice (Paperback)
This is an insightful and provoking book, whose theme goes hand in hand with many of the greatest Russian SF works. Unlike his Western contempories, who mostly speculated about the unending future acheivements of man, Lem wrote about our fundemental limits, particularly in understanding the universe, and other people. In some ways, it bears a resemblence to the "Roadside Picnic" by the Strugatsky (sp?) brothers.
