Robert Sheckley – The Status Civilization


I have clearly read this book before, I wonder how many years ago since I didn’t remember almost anything of the twists and discoveries the author has reserved for the reader.
It’s a light and short reading (around 100 pages), available at project Gutenberg, proof read by volunteers around the world.

Well worth reading if you’re a fan of science-fiction, even though the themes have been done and overdone since then: Sheckley has been, to my knowledge, a source of inspiration by its exploration of such themes: life in a penal colony, utopia turned into a dystopia, brainwashing, robotic civilization.
