Solaris review

Solaris - Stanisław Lem, Joanna Kilmartin, Steve Cox

** spoiler alert ** Well-written, but I don't see the point. Maybe it makes more sense in the original language but for me the book was kinda meaningless. The author goes through the whole trouble of having planet create "visitors" for the scientists only to deny them the peer-to-peer contact with the planet that they desire at the end, and then the visitors are destroyed. It was worth reading but maybe it will take awhile for any meaning to catch up with me.
