    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.

    Story

    I was first introduced to Solaris through the movie re-make (2002). I am a life long fan of sci-fi but honestly had a hard time fully understanding the movie. I purchased this Audible title and was rewarded by a rich, moving, deeply haunting story that lived up to the all of the accolades heaped on this tale. It prompted me to go back and revisit the 2002 movie and to also seek out and watch the 1972 version. Juliani's narration perfectly fit the mood and tone of the story and by the end I was left in that special space that only great sci-fi can take me to.
