A brilliantly crafted collection of stories from celebrated science fiction writer Stanislaw Lem.
Trurl and Klaupacius are constructor robots who try to out-invent each other. Over the course of their adventures in The Cyberiad, they travel to the far corners of the cosmos to take on freelance problem-solving jobs, with dire consequences for their unsuspecting employers.
Playfully written, and ranging from the prophetic to the surreal, these stories demonstrate Stanislaw Lem's vast talent and remarkable ability to blend meaning and magic into a wholly entertaining and captivating work.

Not what I had expected at all
These stories are extremely off beat. They are absolutley not for those seeking a light hearted set of science fiction stories."Playfully written...", yes, but not in the way I had hoped.
If I were to draw a picture of how these stories felt, I would draw one of those drug inspired pictures of The Beatles Yellow Submarine movie. Very abstract, overdrawn, stark colors...just odd. Not my taste at all. I had to stop listening to the stories after a couple of hours.
Beyond that I thought the stories to be just, well, not interesting.
Read the description well and understand it fully. However, those to two robots in the description I perceived as people and the description gives you a false impression of far reaching adventures."Playfully written, and ranging from the prophetic to the surreal..." is the key for me.Unfortunately I interpreted that incorrectly.
For those who read for intellectual stimulation rather than entertainment, these stories might be interesting.
