Which books are similar to HMV?
« dnia: Listopad 27, 2009, 07:14:59 pm »
Can you please recommend a Lem book for me if I did like His Master's Voice, but I didn't like Cyberiad?

Oh sure, so you like those 'serious' Lem's books. That' great, we've got plenty. I think you could try:
- "Summa Technologiae", it's not exactly a novel but a discourse, still you should find it interesting. I think.
- "Fiasco" is a novel, also dealing with problem of 'contact' between Humanity and another race (when I say 'also' I mean it resembles "HMV" a little by this).
- "Solaris" definitely on of the best works about aforementioned 'contact' ever written, however the contents of this brilliant piece cannot be summed up to just that, there's much more.

Now it's up to you. Please come back with post-reading reflections:)

I suggest another Lem's most ambitious apocrypha:
-"GOLEM XIV",
-"Die Kultur Als Fehler" ("Civilization as a mistake"), "Non Serviam" and "The New Cosmogony" from "A Perfect Vacuum",
-"Weapon Systems of the Twenty First Century or the Upside-down Evolution" from "Biblioteka XXI wieku" (if you can read Polish).

Thanks. Based on these suggestions I'm now 2/3 finished with Fiasco and I agree.
