Lord have pity on us! In this simian world, civilization is turned upside down: On the planet of the apes, man, having reached to apotheosis of his genius, has become inert. To this planet come a journalist and a scientist. The scientist is put into a zoo, the journalist into a laboratory. Only the journalist retains the spiritual strength and creative intelligence to try to save himself, to fight the appalling scourge, to remain a man.
Out of this situation, Pierre Boulle has woven a tale as harrowing, bizarre, and meaningful as any in the brilliant roster of this master storyteller.

May 26, Lyn rated it really liked it. It is a statement against complacency, a warning that history will repeat itself if we are not eternally vigilant.
The novel may also be read as a cautionary illustration of our relationship with our environment and the animals with which we share the Earth. Boulle himself, the author of The Bridge Over the River Kwaidescribed the novel as a social fantasy. There is a scene of racial memory that is especially noteworthy, but a fine work throughout. I am coming to believe that the s were the zenith of science fiction and this is a good example. View all 9 comments.
Nov 06, K. Absolutely rated it liked it Recommended to K. French writer Pierre Boulle made use of his experience as a soldier in WWII in depicting the relationship of apes and men in this book, Planet of the Apes. While stationed in Indochina inhe was captured by Vichy France loyalists on the Mekong River and was subjected to severe hardship and forced labour.
The way the loyalists treated him and his fellow Gaulle and resistance dez inspired Boulle to write this novel. This piere was highly praised and was given such revie French writer Pierre Boulle made use of his experience as a soldier in WWII in depicting the relationship of apes and men in this book, Planet of the Apes.
This book was highly praised and was voulle such reviews as this example from England’s Guardian newspaper: It is a sci-fi because of the idea of having apes ruling the universe as they think that men have lesser intelligence than them.
The Ape planet, called Soror Latin for sisterrevolves plate the red Sun called Betelguese that is real. Then the ape scientists in the said planet conduct Pavlov-like experiments to their captured human beings and one of the three was Ulysse, the author of the journal found floating in the space as narrated in the frame story.
His companion, the genius scientist from Earth, Professor Antell turns crazy while his fellow crew, physicist Arthur Levaine is killed during the landing of their spaceship. For me, its main theme is an reminder of the things we take for granted or better yet, the people who we take for granted. Sometimes, we think that they are lesser than us: But in reality, we don’t realize that they can be more than us. It’s just that we are too focused on ourselves that we don’t see what they have that we lack.
For example as a reader, we think that we all pick and read the better books biulle we look down on people who read other books not realizing that those could be better than what we are sinves. This book is a sci-fi and I know some people look down on sci-fi readers. Not true, figment of imagination, will never happen, yadda, yadda. But hey, how about this main theme that I deduced pjerre this book? View all 5 comments.
E eu AMO quando isso acontece, porque sobre muito mais tempo para conhecer os personagens e seus conflitos. Jul 05, Rebecca McNutt rated it really ;ierre it Shelves: Planet of the Apes is shocking and eye-opening, a classic sci-fi novel that everyone should read. The themes within it are certainly worth it. Vague Spoilers Ahead I don’t really think that I can do this book justice in my review.
I plantd that it was lw. I know that I have seen the movie long ago, and remember the big reveal at the end and Charlton yelling about damning everyone all to hell, but I don’t remember much more than that. I’ll have to watch the movie again. I really loved the subtle cautionary tale running throughout the story. Maybe it’s just my feminist liberal bleeding heart whispering to me, but I feel th Caution: Maybe it’s just my feminist liberal bleeding heart boullee to me, but I feel that Boulle just plain hated live-animal experiments and was determined to show people that the tables could be turned one day.
La Planète des singes
But more than that, the book cautions us not to be complacent and lazy about our place in life and in the food chain and to keep striving and learning and bettering ourselves, but NOT at the cost of other life-forms.
We’re on top now, but only time dee tell if we stay there.
pidrre And do we actually deserve to be? We, the “Lords of Creation,” seem to think that we can do anything and everything we want to do.
La Planète des singes by Pierre Boulle (3 star ratings)
We’re so filled with pride that sines never think that OUR civilization could fall. Those kind of things are for history books, not real life. Yet we consume resources like they’re going out of style, and pollute the earth like we have a spare, and just generally act like there’s a “Reset” button somewhere that we can just press when we’ve reached the point of no return. Why shouldn’t another species give running things a try? If they can do it better But that’s the thing. At one point in the story, when Merou was being shown the experiments, I thought to myself, “They are proud of the fact that they are keeping the “animals” down Taking any vestiges of humanity or rational thought away as soon as it is displayed in order to protect themselves.
They are so fearful of the possibility of human uprising that they commit atrocities to prevent plantte. And so can Apes, who apparently learned from the best.
In examining plsnte Apes, we’re looking at ourselves. Can we really pass judgment? But, I was happy to see that the three “races” of Apes could cohabitate and cooperate in peace, which is more than we’ve accomplished so far. Our differences divide us, but ves Apes recognize and relish their differences and use them well. But Apes still seem to rival Man in the fear department: I do have to say that I was kind of annoyed with Merou’s assumption that life forms in a far, far away galaxy would automatically be human to be intelligent.
It just goes to show that our pride will be our downfall. Al it reminded me of a quote from another science-fiction book that I enjoyed, Solaris by Stanislaw Lem which you should remember singss you keep up with my reviews: We take off into the cosmos, ready for anything: Modesty forbids us to say so, but there are times when we think pretty well of ourselves. And yet, if we sibges it more closely, our enthusiasm turns out to be all sham.
We don’t want to singew the cosmos, we simply want to extend the boundaries of Earth to the frontiers of the cosmos. For us, such and such a planet is as arid as the Sahara, another as frozen as the North Pole, yet another as lush as the Amazon basin. We are humanitarian and chivalrous; we don’t want to enslave other races, we simply want to bequeath them our values and take over their heritage in exchange.
We think of ourselves as the Knights of the Holy Contact. This is another lie. We are only seeking Man. We have no need of other worlds. We don’t know what to do with other worlds.
