Once, there were hard-covered, leather-finished tomes. I love those...

Still, I am far more omnivorous reader, incl. of paperbacks & ebooks.

Potrójna reintegracja

Potrójna reintegracja - Robert Sheckley Have you ever felt as if you were not yourself? As if there are two or three yous inside? As if every day you were fighting with your other you to stay in control? In the future they found a solution - they "surgically" extract those other sides, those Hydes your Jekyl fears might make him Hulk down everyone in the near vicinity and hurt your beloved ones. Then, they send them far, far away, far enough to never cross your paths... Is it a good solution to the problem? The hero of the story, or rather the heroes, tried it and while at the beginning everything seemed alright soon it became obvious one can't exist without his shadow, Jekyl can't cope without Hyde, Banner needs his Hulk... So our character goes after his alter egos to unite oneself once more and like Banner he soon finds he might not be ready for what his other selves have done. Can he become the one? Or maybe it's not a good idea? After all, you can't undone what's happened without repercussions. Will the space and time help him unite? Usually heroes survive, break a few bones, get the girls, run from the bad guys, but here are 3 drastically different heroes whose unification means death to a pair of them. Would you say yes and join with a stranger self when you have your own life to live through? Yeah, that's the problem of our hero going after his each other self. If you're interested how to deal with the monster inside you and how removing it might disrupt the delicate balance and only wreak more havoc, how to try to recover lost parts and how you might end with this gruesome task jedi masters would be afraid to take on, than get this book.
