By Stanislaw Lem

Rating: 2 stars

I’m really not sure what to make of this book. The first half is suspenseful and creepy, and you’re not sure what’s going on. Then it suddenly switches to quite a dry, almost academic tone, as it starts describing the history of the planet Solaris. And the ending was completely open, with no sense of closure at all. It’s probably worth reading, but I think you have to be in a certain frame of mind for it.
