I read this years ago and found myself enthralled with each of these hilarious and fascinating short stories. Though this is not the only book featuring Ijon Tichy, this is my favorite. It's a fun read with great ideas and its actually funny. HIGHLY recommended! Also, this features one of the best time travel stories ever (again, great jokes) and the last story in the book is great too. BUY IT!
