5.0 out of 5 stars The second chronicle, 8 May 2004
The second in the Duncton Chronicles. A very well written story of the troubles and strifes of moledom laying in wait for the Stone Moles coming. An excellent fantasy book, dealing with issues of religion, conflicting beliefs, love and community. For those of you who haven't read Duncton Wood, the story is very easy to pick up and follow as i myself began the chronicles with this book. It is truely captivating and a great read. I would recommend this book even to those of you who don't quite get on with the idea of animals talking etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars The work of a genius., 8 May 2004
This review is from: The Cyberiad (Paperback)
This is the first of Lem's books I have read, it is compulsively readable, you cannot get bored of it. A fantastic set of short stories, even if you're not a fan of sci fi, once you get your mind around Lem's amazingly descriptive writing, you'll find something you enjoy. There's even a little moral behind each story.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to start reading Lem's work and don't know where to start, it'll give you a taster of his great skill and his fantastic imagination. To those of you who already read Lem - another piece of his work at it's best.
