Lem’s remarkable science fiction tale is an unforgettable venture into the unknown, similar in scope and vision to Arthur C. Clarke's classic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. As Kris Kelvin ventures to a space station that is conducting experiments over the planet Solaris, he makes a dramatic discovery. The planet itself seems to be playing mind games with him, forcing him to deal with a re-creation of his deceased wife and their shrouded past together. The production showcases a talented cast from the BBC, featuring Ron Cook and Joanne Froggatt, as well as a beautiful soundtrack filled with sound effects that creates an atmosphere of melancholy. As visionary as the tale it relates, this audiobook is a moving experience that is sure to give listeners goose bumps. L.B.
