Reader recommendation: The Futurological Congress

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I just read Stanislaw Lem's The Futurological Congress for the second time. Lem's sarcasm perfectly balances the underlying dark view of the future. The book is translated from the Polish but has such perfect prose that it makes me smile – the perfect irony for a dystopian tale!
