I have something different for you today. Instead of reviews I’ve got a proposition for some listening. There’s still 3 more days left for you to listen to part one of Solaris at BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00pf12m.
I bet you’ve already heard of this book. I know there are millions of books out there, but this is one of the SF classics. I have to say it’s a must for every sf fan out there.
Forget about the movie with Clooney! I might have a sentiment for it, but let’s face it – it wasn’t very good. Weather you’ve already read a book or not, this dramatization is a good one. Two episodes 1 hour each are either a good reminder or an encouragement to read the book with all the fascinating details, philosophical thoughts and just a little bit of space madness.
I never understood this saying “to Lem a book” I know Lem’s books are not easy to read, but they are really well written. I got to read some of the stories in my primary school from “Tales of Pirx the Pilot” and “The Cyberiad” and although I probably haven’t understood them then, I already liked them.
