It took me a couple of reads to get into this story when I first read it. Lem is not your average sci-fi hack. Even the movie with George Clooney was difficult to watch (mainly because it, like the written story, breaks many sci-fi rules). This audio play may be the best way to experience Solaris, and to understand what is going on. It is elegantly directed and performed. It's not for whizz-bang sci-fi fans. This isn't Asimov. But if you're ready for something different, this may surprise you. If you already know Lem, it will please you.
Living is easy with eyes closed... and headphones on.
Yes, this was very well done. Every time i listen i get something else out of it.
Not sure about other book but this is even better than the 2002 film and i didnt think it possible.
Nice job, characters felt so real... I could feel Kris's pain, his longing to be with his wife again.
Can miracles be cruel?
Please make more of these adaptations, like other stanislaw lem books. Really fabulous job with this. I can listen to it over and over and over.
Solaris master peace . nice book very good performance , nicely done. highly recommended for everyone
