Interesting take on what first contact with aliens might actually be like - the sheer incomprehensibility of something completely out of the human norm. A human ship accidentally crashes on a little-studied planet and tries to piece together the inhabitant's civilization from their own observations, knowing that the human point of view might not apply.

Lem's writing is a little simplistic (perhaps due to translation), but he creates a fantastic world populated with incredible creatures and improbable things. Not his best work, but still an enjoyable read.
