    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Lore says: "Book 1 of a great series that is not to be missed!"
    "Excelent book with excelent naration"
    Overall

    The book itself is excellent, but the narration brings this to excellence. The narrator uses voices so well you quickly know the characters within moments, and can always tell the difference without introduction.

    The only minor quibble is some pauses in the recording for some reason.

    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

    Perhaps it is just the way I listen, but I often listen in the car. The constant changes in volume meant I was constantly rewinding and raising the volume. While I can appreciate an attempt to act through it, I still need to be able to hear it. And as a previous user mentioned, the descriptions go on and on.

    A collection of four lesbian stories....

    While I enjoyed the stories, they were not new. They were from Girl Fun 1 or 2. I don't fault the narrator for this choice, but the editors for just giving repeat content.
