About the Author

Polish science fiction writer Stanislaw Lem was born on September 12, 1921. A medical graduate of Cracow University, he is at home both in the sciences and in philosophy, and this broad erudition gives his writings genuine depth. He has published extensively, not only fiction, but also theoretical mostrar mais studies. His books have been translated into 41 languages and sold over 27 million copies. He gained international acclaim for The Cyberiad, a series of short stories, which was first published in 1974. A trend toward increasingly serious philosophical speculation is found in his later works, such as Solaris (1961), which was made into a Soviet film by Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky in 1972 and remade by Steven Soderbergh in 2002. He died on March 27, 2006 in Krakow at the age of 84. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Críticas

This was very interesting book.

Subject is the one we come across in every SF exploration story - if we are capable to land on remote planets does it mean we are supposed to establish the colony on those planets? Do we, as human species need to conquer everything we gaze at or are we prudent enough to identify situations where some things are better left as is and then move to more friendly territories?

After contact with the first colony ship (Condor) is lost, second colony ship (Invincible) lands on the remote planet that seems to be devoid of life. Only things that are present on the planet surface are strange metallic constructions whose signature seems to be all over the place, including the remains of the first colony ship. Seas harbor some of the life forms but also remains of above-mentioned metallic structures.

Rest is something that we had opportunity to see in the many SF movies like Aliens, Forbidden planet etc. Humanity encounters alien creatures that seem to outmatch everything humanity can throw at them. Fight for the very survival begins.

I wont go into more details in order not to spoil anything. Story is very fast, with lots of action and very reasonable moves by the human expedition - people are armed, are walking under the protection, drones are used to reconnoiter and attack, armed groups covering the others, huge machines, semi-and-fully-autonomous and heavily armed provide support, nobody walks alone through tunnels after first incidents are recorded. Entire process is very realistic and alive. Science is clear and understandable, sometimes gets into the more specialized terms and discussions (but again nothing that cannot be corrected by Internet or encyclopedias) but in general it remains in domain of popular science. Lots of things to be learned.

Presentation of automata life forms and the application of evolutionary process to non-alive/non-biological organisms is truly magnificent (especially with the description of possible origin of artificial organisms and how they developed further when their masters were gone). Aside from the ecstatic comments like awww nanobots, ain't it cool etc, I think people should ask themselves what does creation of artificial life (artificial as in non evolved on its own, but created) brings with the very act of creation? Something that would very much find other life forms as possible opposition. And when you provide such highly adaptable organisms into any eco system, disaster will definitely happen.

All in all I enjoyed the book .... except the ending. Ending was for me a little bit letdown. Barely escaping alive, Rohan manages to get to the Invincible and then he is saved.It is visible from his internal monologue that he is fascinated with the world and that he thinks it should be kept unspoiled, but there is no closure here. We are just given last few scenes where Rohan is loaded into Invincible after being carried by rescue team through the perimeter and that is it. As I said, for me ...... a letdown.

All in all interesting book, with some very interesting forecasts especially in terms of drones, satellite control and reconnaissance, use of energy weapons and of course discourse on advantages of swarm organisms.

Recommended to all fans of SF adventure.

Very mixed feelings about this book. In close up the prose is excellent, both lyrical and evocative descriptions of one of the most alien aliens I have ever encountered.
On the other hand, the narrative arc never really engaged me and there were places where I was all at sea (pun intended). May well benefit from a re-read at some point.

This is basically a book of Fairy Tales if Robots Ruled the world - I liked it, however, at times, the stories felt a bit outdated, like why would their be a princess robot- or why do robots even have gender? However, the stories are written in the 70's, in Soviet Era Poland, so that would factor into these stories as well.

Interesting parallels to Solaris, but ultimately only a mediocre read.
