Disclaimer I read a different edition so all of this review is just about Tale of the TroikaTale of the Troika in my opinion was even better than Monday Begins on Saturday which I also adore I read it pretty much in two days It is concise and linear in its storytelling; the world is coherent and the entire story line is freaking hilarious with a whole crew of lovable characters I don't know how well it would translate for readers not from an ex Soviet country although most of the satire on bureaucracy fits pretty well into current systems as well as academia Most people can relate to a committee like this from some point in their career One member who wants to screw you over one that has no idea what he is talking about one that wants to sound very important one that is powerfully dumb and one that sleeps through the entire thing It is a fun read very poignant satire and a place I wish I could return to The only problem with this book is the disturbing lack of further seuels

Although this book contains both Roadside Picnic and Tale of the Troika this review is only of the latter shorter story Roadside Picnic isn’t really worth reading If you’re curious about my review of that one see hereThink of Tale of the Troika as kind of a twisted Lewis Carroll esue fantasy of the Soviet bureaucracy but not nearly as good as Lewis Carroll would have doneLuckily it is short because it is hit and miss with the emphasis on miss Still there are some delightful sections The argument between the bedbug and abominable snowman about whether the human race was any better than other species is probably the highlight but there are others scattered amidst the drossNear the end there was one paragraph that will ring true for anyone tired of the attack on science common in the United States today Is evolution true Is climate change happening The Soviets knew the power of ideological denial  “How’s he on perjury” Feofil asked the goat
 “Never” she replied “He always believes every word he says”
 “Really what is a lie” said Farfurkis “A lie is a denial or a distortion of a fact But what is a fact Can we speak of facts in our increasingly complex life A fact is a phenomenon or action that is verified by witnesses But eyewitnesses can be prejudiced self interested or simply ignorant Or a fact is a phenomenon or action that is verified by documents But documents can be forged or tampered with Or finally a fact is a phenomenon or action that is determined by me personally However my sensations can be dulled or even completely deceived under certain circumstances Thus it is evident that a fact is something ephemeral nebulous and unverifiable and the elimination of the concept becomes necessary But in that case falsehood and truth become primitive concepts indefinable through any other general categories There exist only the Great Truth and its antipode the Great Lie The Great Truth is so great and its validity so obvious to any normal man such as myself that it is totally futile to try to refute or distort it that is to lie” ­

I have loved both the Roadside Picnic and the Monday starts on a Saturday I've specifically tracked this edition for the Tale of Troika to see what else the wizardsscientists at NITWIT were up to next and I loved itThis has to be one of the most scolding satires of the Soviet bureaucracy especially their tendency to make a committee for everything I have recognized so many people from both my experience and from stories from other people I know in these characters that it has taken me four or five times as long to read through this short story simply because I just couldn't stop laughing at times and had to take breaksThe ceremonial launch of the elevator and the reuest for a purple Extraterrestrial with four eyes and four arms to prove that he is in fact not from Earth really got me you have no ideaI do not wish to reveal for I will only spoil the jokes If you liked Monday starts on a Saturday there is a good chance you will love this story even
