The Wonderful World of Robert Sheckley

By Robert Sheckley

Rating: 4 stars

I was introduced to Robert Sheckley some time ago as a very surreal and edgy author whose works left you feeling like like your mind had been through a washing machine on spin cycle. This collection of fairly early short stories is different. The edginess feels missing in a lot of these stories — they seem more ‘gentle’ than some of his other work. This is in no way a bad thing, but it wasn’t what I was expecting and surprised me. However, some observant jabs at capitalism and taking trends to extremes make for entertaining reading.
