    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.

    What disappointed you about Solaris?

    Long passages about the characters researching a a library, made up mainly with the names of fictional scientists and the endless details that dragged on and on..


    What could Stanislaw Lem and Bill Johnston (translator) have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The translation was fine


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It had an awesome premise that kept me listening till the end hoping it would develop..
