The Futurological Congress: From the Memoirs of Ijon TichyThe Futurological Congress: From the Memoirs of Ijon Tichy by Stanisław Lem
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lem has always had some seriously good writing and this particular one is no joke. It's funny, loopy with wordplay, and rich in futurology. We follow the perpetually out of place Ijon Tichy who spends almost all of his time trying to figure out what's actually wrong in the future he finds himself.

And believe me, if you've been looking for a good SF that puts a skewer in our own society from many different angles, then you can't really go wrong with Lem. He's just too smart, too concise, wherever he leads us, we bleed.

Lem is a real master.
