summary Dzienniki gwiazdowe 108 å Bohaterem Dzienników gwiazdowych jest „kosmiczny wędrowiec” Iljon Tichy który przemierza międzyplanetarne przestrzenie w poszukiwaniu nowych przygód i doświadczeń Poznając obce pozaziemskie cywilizacje styka się z problemami w których z łatwością dostrzegamy odbicie wynaturzeń naszej ziemskiej cywilizacji PeIwe powiastki filozoficzne Lema dostarczają znakomitej rozrywki lecz zarazem skłaniają do poważnej refleksji nad możliwymi scenariuszami dalszego rozwoju naszego świata. This was good fun I read Solaris saw the two versions of the movie one Russian and the other American starring Mr Clooney My impression based on that was that he was serious very philosophical and very trippy as well This book was initially unexpected as it was very humorous but yet it had all the elements mentioned about Solaris It is a different type satirical humour than that of Vonnagut Jr but on par This book was eually smart clever very funny and introspective all at once

Poznając obce pozaziemskie cywilizacje styka się z problemami w których z łatwością dostrzegamy odbicie wynaturzeń naszej ziemskiej cywilizacji Pełne humoru błyskotl. Also available on the WondrousBooks blog What a fantastic book One of the best ones that I have read this year If you have not read it and I assume that is the situation I highly recommend it I sat at my desk today to write and the chair said to me 'What a strange world this is I will put this bluntly I am highly aware that the English speaking world generally neglects the literature of the rest of the world which is the idea behind the Reading the World challenge to begin with I am also aware that among the world literature that does gain some fame the Eastern block is not in focus HOWEVER I think that by not reading certain novels The Star Diaries among them people are committing literary crime Because this book is brilliant in its writing ideas and sense of humor achieved through satireI read it in Michael Kandel's translation my Polish not being great as of yetthough I consider myself a good student and I thought the writing was beautiful I can only begin to imagine how lovely Lem's original expressions are because translations no matter how good always take away something from the originalThe language overall was very rich changing between styles even using a made up version of old and new language in the Polish version I assume Polish but also and much credit to Kandel of course in the English version a sensational mix of old and new English that I had some trouble with but that only attests to it's greatness because it used expressions long out of useI am generally not a fan of satire but this book was fantastic in that sense The humor so gentle and subtle and yet obviously there was amazing I usually put some berth between myself and humorous books but I do not regret a second of reading The Star Diaries Which brings me to the moment I will acuaint you with the book itself The Star Diaries tells the story of Ijon Tichy who travels from one planet to another and gets in all kinds of strange and comic situations The stories are told in separate journeys instead of chapters and the journeys themselves were written out of order for 20 years Some of them lean on the philosophy some on the humor but all of them are ultimately rewarding  Ijon Tichy is a great narrator What he succeeds at the best is the fact that he takes all of the events that happen to him no matter how strange or borderline disturbing they are in a light hearted and calm manner He escapes narrowly from crashing his ship on numerous occasions he is left stranded in space he gets mixed up in all kinds of weird events and he does it in an almost graceful manner Even so when he ponders whether he really existed to begin with when he creates the world or gets arrested by robot fanaticsSome of the voyages were better than others some were longer and some much shorter I had trouble with the language as I mentioned above of the Eleventh Voyage but the idea was brilliant and reminded me a lot of The Man Who Was Thursday I will not let out any spoilers but it was great If you ever wondered how the world was created you would enjoy the Eight Voyage in which Ijon goes to represent Earth in a gathering of the United Planets and understands how we came to bea silly accident of oil spillage He creates the history of the planet through a series of work mishaps during a project that he is in charge of in the Twentieth Voyage The Twenty first Voyage was admittedly challenging in a philosophical way but also extremely interesting as it tells the story of how Ijon Tichy crashes on a planet of creatures that used to be human like until they started making genetic changes to their bodies and ended up completely robot and unable to return to the way they used to be because they are torn by conflicts both of philosophical and religious character click for original Lem illustration I will leave you enjoy the rest of this mad and fantastic book on your own but if you ever trusted my judgement you will read it because it is great It incorporates all of the flaws of humanity told in a humorous way and also as it seemed to me though ironic nevertheless full of the affection that Lem had for the human kind
