  • I first read this book twenty five years ago, but now it is no longer the same book it is a much better book For one thing, the old English version was based on a manuscript that was heavily edited by Soviet censors For another, I have changed, and so the impressions I received were altogether different.Think of a community of scientists and scholars in Leningrad, all on the point of making breakthroughs Suddenly, they find themselves being literally driven to distraction by by anything Fake pho [...]

  • Brothers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, a translator and an astronomer respectively, united to produce some of the most popular science fiction of the Soviet era Their novels have only recently been released in their entirety and translated for Western markets Filled with veiled and not so veiled allusions to the repressive regime under which they toiled, Definitely Maybe stands as their personal favorite and most stringently critical of books.Here is the story of a group of scientists in various [...]

  • Completely bizarre just like Roadside Picnic, thenexcept, no, bizarre in a totally different wayI feel a bit dense because it took until near the end for me to figure out what the allegorical satirical point behind it all was Having done so, I m surprised it got published at all in the USSR.Also, does that darned integral equal zero or not

  • Man vs Man Man vs Nature Man vs the Universe Man vs Aliens I suppose it doesn t matter.A mysterious book about a series of mysterious happenings intent on stifling all forms of progress and knowledge Clearly a very personal work of art, having had to deal with the oppressive Soviet censors for most of their career, it s no wonder this book seems so chillingly real, in spite of it s fantastical sometimes hilariously so elements.While limitations can have a cripplingly negative effect on, well, j [...]


  • Easy to read, hard to follow.While I really enjoyed the book, I confess that I spent most of the time wondering whether I truly understood what was happening, and whether or not any of it was real.An astrophysicist trying to finish work on his theory is repeatedly thwarted by unexplained alcohol, a random woman in a short skirt, strange men, and the potential visitation of for want of a better word aliens I can t say that I didn t understand his theory, but I can t say that I fully grasped it ei [...]

  • Definitely Maybe is short, but very dense not an easy read at all This is a piece of fiction in which idea is central not character, or story It tells the story of four Soviet scientists, each working in separate disciplines, who are being distracted from their work by a series of bizarre events They quickly decide that the distractions are quite deliberate an attempt to keep them from their work.Probably the most divisive thing about this book is view spoiler that the nature of the distractions [...]


  • I rarely read something and think to myself I need to read everything they ve ever written but that s how I felt after reading Definitely Maybe by the Strugatskys The book is a funny and often frightening look at the powers of distraction and the lengths some will go to stop progress The narrative moves at a very quick place and drops off at integral points only to pick up a bit later leaving the reader almost disoriented It s as if you become a part of the chaos of the plot I don t want to give [...]

  • The person who gave me this thought Oasis first album Definitely Maybe was derived from the title of this book I don t know if that is true, but I cannot imagine either Noel or Liam especially Liam reading this.I avoided other reviews because I wanted to take a stab at some sort of interpretation This is a very short novel which is dense with ideas that mostly go over my head That is not to say it is not enjoyable on some Kafka esque level I don t know if it is the translation, but it is The Pri [...]


  • Hate to admit this, but I have no idea what this book was about Yes, there s satire about a totalitarian government Got that But I didn t get the plot and there are no developed characters Little than a novella, they needed to spend some time and write a real novel Russian sci fi is an acquired taste, and I don t seem to have the hang of it yet

  • A Soviet era novel involving a dwarf who vanishes into thin air and what might be aliens or a malevolent, rebelling Universe, that one of the authors described as being a piece of our own life filled with absolutely concrete people and real events It is structured something like a play, taking place almost entirely inside one apartment, with many of the key events occurring off stage Scientists from varying disciplines are finding themselves being prevented from continuing their work, either by [...]
