Future not so far from our own... or is it ?,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Futurological Congress (From the Memoirs of Ijon Tichy) (Paperback)
It seems that this book is not intended for readers with short attention span.
The book dips you into a "potential future", tantalizing the reader with dark visions of the world in part created by and in part governed by pseudo-sensations, created by advanced hallucinogenic substances. This theme switches on and off in other Lem's works, but in this book it actually is the canvas upon which the author draws a sad, somewhat bizarre and somehow very familiar picure of the world of the "next century".
I highly recommend this book to all who seek more than passing amusement in literature.
