We begin the book following a newly landed astronaut that is joining a research team on the weird planet of Solaris... and things get even weirder for them after the reader enters the book. I don't want to spoil much! I love solid sci-fi with unique ideas and this is one of them. This also reminds me of a sci-fi rather than fantasy version of Susanna Clarke's 'Piranesi'. I have seen the confusing Tarkovsky film (and I'm a fan of Tarkovsky!) but the book explains much much more and is therefore much better. None of the book is in the film! What the heck, Tarkovsky? Really I had the exact same problems when he filmed 'Stalker' based on 'Roadside Picnic'.
'Solaris' and 'Roadside Picnic' really remind me of Jeff VanderMeer's 'Annihilation' but when I did an internet search to see the possible relation, he already answered the question seven years ago on Goodreads to say that he has never read 'Roadside Picnic' or 'Solaris', so there can't possibly be an influence from them. That is uncanny!

This is the first book that I've read by Lem, and it appears that all of the praise that I've heard of him over the years is well-deserved. This book was very close to being a philosophical story, but it was so entertaining and engrossing that it was easy to not even realize that was happening until the end. For me, that was a plus, as I generally don't have much tolerance for such thoughts. As it is, this book will probably sit in my thoughts for some time to come, as well as taint (in a good way) any exposure I have in the future to stories/movies dealing with alien contact. ( )

damn so like i watched the movie and i really liked it despite it being very slow paced and cerebral and I thought the book would help me understand it which it sort of did despite having a pretty different story. interestingly the book is way more fast paced and suspenseful than the movie, kinda feels like watching an episode of old star trek ( )

"Only now did I realize that I was not in the least concerned with the mimoid, and that I had flown here not to explore the formation but to acquaint myself with the ocean." (pg. 212)

The above statement by Kris Kelvin, our protagonist, delivered in the final pages of Stanisław Lem's Solaris, went some way in reconciling me to a novel that had proved difficult and sometimes disappointing. The book sees Kelvin arrive at a near-abandoned space station orbiting a strange planet known as Solaris. The few occupants of the station have been driven mad, apparently by the effects of proximity to the gigantic "protoplasmic ocean-brain enveloping the entire planet" below (pg. 22). Kelvin finds himself drawn into their madness when his former lover, who had committed suicide years earlier, manifests in front of him as a living, organic body.

It's a great premise and the novel at its best is very disturbing; the station above Solaris a sort of sci-fi counterpart to the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King's The Shining (the encounter with the "Negress" on page 31 reminded me of Room 237). There are plenty of odd, hallucinatory happenings in the story and the reader develops some queasy, mind-warping feelings. Unfortunately, however, the story lacks the through-line of plot or character that makes King's Overlook Hotel so compelling. We're never quite sure what's going on or why, and whilst Kelvin's relationship with the manifestation of his former lover has some dramatic power, it's not really clear what his plans or motivations are, or those of the other people on the station. The book isn't helped in this respect by the unfocused English translation of the story (Lem himself wasn't a fan) or by the lengthy digressions and expository passages.

The most intriguing part of the story is that protoplasmic ocean-brain mentioned above. Kelvin spends most of his time contemplating it – and so do we, the readers. Lem has some surprisingly coherent scientific explanations for how it works, and we're drawn into the trap of trying to figure out what its nature is and what it means. Is it trying to communicate, or is it indifferent to humanity? Is it a god, or is it even sentient at all? Is it forbiddingly complex, or simple but just so far removed from human understanding of reality that it appears inscrutable? The book, for all its flaws, is consistently fascinating on this.

Lem seems to mean for this to be a comment on the folly of mankind's ventures into space, for Man has not yet even mastered himself. "Man has gone out to explore other worlds and other civilizations without having explored his own labyrinth of dark passages and secret chambers, and without finding what lies behind doorways that he himself has sealed" (pg. 164). Kelvin being confronted with the manifestation of his former lover, and the unresolved emotions resulting from this, seems to illustrate this literary sentiment. The strangeness of Solaris' psychedelic ocean challenges not only our understanding of the universe, but our approach to understanding. "We observe a fraction of the process" and cannot grasp what lies "beyond the limits of [our] perception or imagination". Reality may well be "a symphony in geometry, but we lack the ears to hear it" (pg. 126).

This is why, when Kelvin delivers the statement with which I opened this review, I became reconciled to Lem's book, despites its frustrations. Solaris doesn't give us any answers. only further questions. But it is a pleasant sensory experience to, like Kelvin in the moments after his statement, press our hand to the strange ocean surf and try to understand its myriad complexities. Contemplation, speculation and intelligent thought can be exhilarating experiences by themselves, without need for any resolution. And we find that we're quite happy to grapple with mysteries, even if they remain mysteries when we close the book. ( )

Hoewel "Solaris" schitterend is verfilmd, is het boek zelf niet overdreven goed. De hoofdpersoon is een psycholoog met weinig verstand van psychologie, die probeert fysische problemen op te lossen, waar hij - en met hem de schrijver - nog minder verstand van heeft. Het gegeven is veelbelovend. De planeet is bedekt met een oceaan die leeft en zichzelf en zijn zonnestelsel kan manipuleren. De onderzoekers en de oceaan proberen met elkaar in kontakt te komen. De onhandige oceaan zaait daardoor dood en verderf. De mogelijkheden om de armoedige "science" te compenseren met spannende "fiction" worden om zeep geholpen door lange pseudo-wetenschappelijke verklaringen over de fysiologie van de planeet, wat de indruk wekt dat een kort verhaal is uitgerekt tot een boek.
