When Kris Kelvin arrives at the planet Solaris to study the ocean that covers its surface he is forced to confront a painful, hitherto unconscious memory embodied in the physical likeness of a long-dead lover. Others suffer from the same affliction and speculation rises among scientists that the Solaris ocean may be a massive brain that creates incarnate memories, but its purpose in doing so remains a mystery . . . Solaris raises a question that has been at the heart of human experience and literature for centuries: can we truly understand the universe around us without first understanding what lies within?… (mais)

You are entering the uncanny valley.. ( )

I discovered this book through a brief mention in an essay, describing it as a novel exploring 'a space ocean that is self-conscious', peaking my curiosity. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised when I found it fell into the horror category (of the "traditional" sort, not dissimilar to 'The Island of Doctor Moreau' by H.G. Wells, for example). While like Moreau there are some questionable themes around race, for the most part I really liked this eerie tale on an abandoned space station.

The Tarkovski film has haunted me for 30 years so when I managed to get both the book and film simultaneously I thought I'd read the book first.
At over 3 hours the Tarkovsky film felt longer than the book, but I was absorbed and intrigued by both. John skimmed the book and dropped the film after 2 hours. He says it took the film for him to realise the book was an analogy of the Soviet state (the planet). I think there's much more to it than that and like most good things, they are not spelled out directly. Both the book and film are likely to resonate within me for ages - too soon to pronounce yet.

I had to read this classic at some point in my life, right? Only... what did I read? The blurb was interesting enough and the experiences with his former wife, or rather the simulacra (the personification of his dreams/imagination of that person), are creepy to some extent. In real life, she's dead, because Kris Kelvin killed her (in a fit of domestic violence or something along those lines). In the story, Kris decides to accept this personification, even wants to set up a new life with her, even if knows it's not really his wife.

The researchers in the space station orbiting Solaris try to make contact with the ocean, which is not the kind of ocean as on Earth. Of the crew, only two remain: Snow and Sartorius. Kelvin arrives at the space station and finds it in an unperfect state, or that's what I understood. He was sent to investigate the project to determine if more funds would be justified or if it would be better to call it a day (stop the project), but never really makes a report of his findings. Nor do these researchers really find out what this ocean is about. They seem to focus more on the simulacra and their own struggles with their imagination (if I read between the lines correctly).

His friend, Gibarian, apparently killed himself a few days earlier, due to not being able to remain sane in an environment which fools you with your own dreams and imaginations. And little by little, Kris Kelvin discovers more and more about the station, the planet Solaris, etc.

As interesting as the story was, especially when it concerned the characters and their doings, I was completely lost when the non-fiction part came up: difficult, scientific explainings about Solaris, about the ocean. Chemistry and physics never were my strongest subjects in school, but when explained properly, I might understand (some of it). Here, it was either the text itself, or the translation that contained so much difficult wording that I skimmed a lot of it.

In any case: as someone else wrote, this isn't exactly an SF novel, but a psychological one in an SF setting. And there's a good deal of psychology in this book, about our dreams and imaginations, about our view on life, and what if all or some of it would really become reality? What would life be like then? Or what if the ocean(s) would indeed be (a) living organism(s) itself/themselves?

Still, since I have some seriously mixed feelings about this "classic", I'll direct you to some better reviews: here. This one (here) isn't bad either. [a:Patrick Rothfuss|108424|Patrick Rothfuss|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1351307341p2/108424.jpg] didn't like the book either: see here.

I hope I'll have more luck and reading pleasure with the other unread SF novels in my collection. ( )

It has that 70's sci-fi undercurrent of dismissive chauvinism/misogyny and despite being quite uniquely imaginative this was enough to put me off. Just not very comfortable to read. ( )

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.
