Review: Peace on Earth

Peace on Earth
Peace on Earth by Stanisław Lem
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another excellent science fiction novel from Stanislaw Lem, and yet another adventure of his greatest character, Ijon Tichy. The story was a bit more predictable than most of Lem’s work, but the tale took you on the usual entertainingly convoluted ride to the climax. The world is at peace and there were no more arms races after all the nations of the world sent their arms-making capabilities to the moon as an ultimate mutually-assured destruction deterrent. But naturally, not every one is happy with that and Tichy is sent up to investigate what is happening on the Moon. The story begins after he comes back, having had the two sides of his brain separated so now his right side literally doesn’t know what his left hand is doing. And neither side can remember what happened to him…

Very entertaining book and definitely recommended!
