Solaris (Compact Disc)
IGNORE THE COVER OF THIS BOOK!!! It is absolutely fantastic--it just happens to have been made into a movie several times. Read the book first! Stanlislaw Lem is shelved in science fiction but would be found in European philosophical fantasy if we had such a section (or if any bookstore had such a section). Solaris is an excellent book that forces the reader to reassess what being human is. It also is a sharp critique of science and it’s a good yarn to boot. Deep and gripping at the same time.— Andy
The first of Stanislaw Lem's novels to be published in America and now considered a classic, Solaris raises the question: Can one truly understand the universe without first understanding what lies within?
