Description

At last, one of the world's greatest works of science fiction is available - just as author Stanislaw Lem intended it.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Solaris, Audible, in cooperation with the Lem Estate, has commissioned a brand-new translation - complete for the first time, and the first ever directly from the original Polish to English. Beautifully narrated by Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica), Lem's provocative novel comes alive for a new generation.

In Solaris, Kris Kelvin arrives on an orbiting research station to study the remarkable ocean that covers the planet's surface. But his fellow scientists appear to be losing their grip on reality, plagued by physical manifestations of their repressed memories. When Kelvin's long-dead wife suddenly reappears, he is forced to confront the pain of his past - while living a future that never was. Can Kelvin unlock the mystery of Solaris? Does he even want to?

Ce que les critiques disent

"A fantastic book." (Steven Soderbergh)

"[Lem] is one of the most intelligent, erudite, and comic writers working today." (Anthony Burgess)

"Few are [Lem's] peers in poetic expression, in word play, and in imaginative and sophisticated sympathy." (Kurt Vonnegut)
"Juliani transmits Kelvin's awe at Solaris's red and blue dawns and makes his confusion palpable when he awakens one morning to find his long-dead wife seated across the room. Juliani's performance is top-notch." (AudioFile)

    "Worthwhile!"

    This science fiction novel written in 1960 has aged somewhat but is still very interesting thanks to its plot centered on psychological and philosophical issues.

    In fact, it is rather amusing that the possibility of travelling to a planet in another solar system and setting up a base there was imagined in 1960 but not the immaterial transmission of mail and newspapers.

    The translation from Polish is flawless, to the point that there is absolutely no perceptible East European varnish to the work.
