    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
    If you could sum up Solaris in three words, what would they be?

    A scientific expedition to an alien planet makes first contact... with themselves.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Solaris?

    When the protagonist seals his wife in a rocket and launches her into orbit.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    A conversation in which the protagonist realizes that if he wishes to save his wife, he has to decide which one of her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This scifi is as thoughtful as A Space Oddessey, and seems as fresh as ever despite its publication date.
