Definitely Maybe

I just finished reading a Russian science fiction novel called "Definitely Maybe" by the Strugatsky Brothers.

This is a book that a friend gave to me some time ago. It has sat, forgotten and forlorn, on my bookshelf for a couple of years, and only a few days ago did I begin to read it...And it kind of blew my mind.

A quote:

"Because that's fiction. Dime store fiction in bright, cheap covers. It's like trying to fit an octopus into a pair of tuxedo pants. And not a plain octopus at that, but an octopus that doesn't even exist."
