    4. I can hardly describe how I feel after finishing this book it has left its mark on me forever I would just say that this is what all literature and all art of any form should be like breath taking and unforgettable Brilliant piece of science fiction A must read for everyone who loves science, futuristic literature and are interested in the breakthrough of medicine.

    5. Interesante Ciencia ficci n de principios del S XX Dos historias cortas La primera as una novela policiaca con una base cient fica El profesor malo quiere aprovecharse de los descubrimientos cient ficos del profesor Dowell, lo mata y recupera la cabeza, que vive con el apoyo de m quinas La historia es interesante, aunque, como novela de acci n, es algo primitiva La segunda novela tambi n tiene elementos de suspense, aunque gira m s alrededor de los elementos de cincia ficci n un mundo moderno en [...]

    6. This was published as part of the Theodore Sturgeon edited Russian Science Fiction series B c this series published multiple bks by Arkady Boris Strugatsky Vladimir Savchenko s Self Discovery , I love the whole shebang even the ones that don t live up to those just mentioned Having grown up in the Cold War era, it s refreshing to see SF used as an avenue for introducing Russian writing in the US this bk was from 1980 so it was pretty late in the game, but, still, a valuable internationalist serv [...]

    7. This book was one of my first sci fi readsAlexander Belyayev is my favorite russian writerAnd this book was second favorite book from himI liked the action, the scientific ideas and psychological thoughts of this book This book is my childhood, which left a very special place in my heart and got me into science fiction

    8. This book used to scared me as hell when I was a kid I started thinking about death and stuffs, never again I tried to read it But now, I feel like the scariest thing in this book is human and scientists.

    9. I really enjoyed this book In terms of story it is similar to Herbert West Reanimator by H.P Lovecraft However, it was a short novel instead of a short story and it took place in Paris instead of America Although this is Soviet SF there are no Russian in it.

    10. Rese a fabulantes 2015 03 cab Beli iev fotograf a en sus descripciones escenas como sta, que hoy asociar amos a otras obras de ficci n mucho m s modernas Futurama, Expediente X o Mars Attacks son iconos paradigm ticos de la cultura popular empapados quiz inconscientemente por el genio del escritor ruso La pluma del Jules Verne del Este de Europa, aunque inocente en su estilo, es tambi n directa, r pida, cargada de acci n y di logo, lista para entintar personajes en situaciones rocambolescas y pa [...]

    11. I always somehow knew that this book exists and is considered classic, but did not know details and got it only recently Both the plot, which is quite focused on human interactions, and unobfuscating writing style somehow remind me both of Karel apek on the better side and of pulp detective novellas on the worse side Head transplantation and artificial sustainment were probably orgiginal ideas when the book was written and actually are again, as science marches on and new problems like immune re [...]

    12. Dos novelas que se disfrutan mucho y que se salen de los c nones m s convencionales de la ciencia ficci n, que est n m s cerca del Pulp y de las novelas populares Un autor desde luego a reivindicar y a leer cuando uno tiene ganas de diversi n y de locura a raudales Qui n se va a resistir a cabezas parlantes, malvados cient ficos, amputaciones a mansalva y manicomios de lo m s cruel viajealrededordeunamesa.wordp

    14. Relato muy simple, que no entra en profundidades de ning n tipo, excepto en la novedosa invenci n de mantener cabezas vivas separadas del cuerpo y en lo que sucede cuando se anexan a otro cuerpo distinto.Digamos que resulta una narraci n anticuada.
