Stanislaw Lem wrote many serious novels and essays, with deep literary impact about communication, aliens and idealized societies.
The Cyberiad isn't one of those.
A collection of mostly humorous (if more than slightly geeky) tales about the famous "constructors" Trurl and Klapaucius living in a robotic/cybernetic world. Despite the technological society, the setting is somewhat Medieval...kings, knights, pirates, the occasional dragon, even a few (robotic) princesses. In this context, Trurl and Klapaucius are knights-errant, using their skills to solve problems, meet challenges and occasionally mess things up royally.
It's a fun set of stories, keying on the friendship-cum-rivalry of the two constructors.
Scott Aiello's narration was very good.
