Publisher's Summary

The year is 3149, and a vast paper destroying blight-papyralysis-has obliterated much of the planet's written history. However, these rare memoirs, preserved for centuries in a volcanic rock, record the strange life of a man trapped in a hermetically sealed underground community.

Better Read then Heard

Would you listen to Memoirs Found in a Bathtub again? Why?

The particular book is better read then heard because as with many scatological type books its hard to maintain focus on the story. The book itself is classic Lem and if you like his wilily style you'll enjoy this book.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Jeff Woodman is quite an excellent narrator and does a good job on a difficult book.

A Satire On Communism

This was written during the Cold War from behind the “Iron Curtain.” Everyone is a potential spy - or double agent - and nothing makes sense. There’s a healthy dose of humor here- although the absurdity got a bit tedious at times. Thankfully, the book is relatively short and well narrated.

tale of madness

all I say is think about the context of the author, a Polish survivor of WW2, as you try to piece together the significance of the novel.
