This is an interesting companion piece to Lem's fantastic "Solaris." If you want to read Lem at his best, I would suggest "Solaris", but this is also a fascinating and darkly humorous narrative which tragically lampoons the absurdities of bureaucracies and subsequent, individual isolation, confusion, and despair.
