Sinbes with This Book. Nov 06, 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 supporters inspired Boulle to write this novel.
This book was highly praised and was given such revie French writer Pierre Boulle made use of plerre 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 dez was given such reviews as this example from England’s Guardian newspaper: It is a sci-fi because of the idea of having pierte ruling the universe as they think that men have lesser intelligence than them.
The Ape planet, called Soror Latin for sisterrevolves around 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 puerre 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 planfe 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 and we look down on people who read other books pierrre realizing that those could be better than what we are reading.
This book is a sci-fi and I know some people look down on sci-fi readers. Not true, figment of lz, will never happen, yadda, yadda. But hey, how about this main theme that I deduced from this book?

There is some argument as to whether the book can be considered science fiction or if it’s a work of satire in the vein of Gulliver’s Travel.
Planet of the Apes
Personally,I tend to see most science fiction as a study of society so I’m not going to say this isn’t it. PotA is an entertaining read but not isnges imaginative. I listened to the audio version recorded by Greg Wise in and was surprised to find that in many cases the word ape in the print version was changed to monkey in the audio recording.
As one who knows that apes noulle monkeys come from distinct simian families, I felt the change made no sense and found it extremely irritating.
Thanks to the Goodreads Time Travel reading group for choosing this book and giving me the opportunity to read and discuss it with others. It inspired that incredible scene with Charlton Heston: It is a cautionary tale and a criticism of how we treat our own world, our own society.

Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle
I had read this once before, I think, just after high school – I found a copy in the local library. They must not have had it anymore, as I had to get this edition via interlibrary loan.
A couple Jinn and Phyllis, while taking a soothing vacation in Spacein the year A. Curious the pair retreats it. A message in a bottle is found! The manuscript is in the language of Earth,French! Jinn having been educated there, can read the papers.
Written by Ulysse Merou and telling of an expedition from our world to the giant star Betelgeuse, light years from Earth. The object is to explore planets suspected of orbiting that star. Landing on one of the four planets discovered, they surprisingly meet human like mutes. Soon after the Earthmen, along with the natives are ambushed by No it isn’t a dream. Slaughtering them like animals, the men run for their lives but are captured. Separated from his friends, Ulysse is put in a cage with Nova a female mute he has befriended.
This planet of the apes looks at Merou like a animal in a zoo. Leaving this upside down place is the goal of Ulysse,a nice place to visit but you wouldn’t want to live there! The book is similar to the film series in certain ways, but different enough to provide a new approach to the main subject. The story is told as being in a manuscript found by space travellers, so much of the story is told in narrative rather than dialogue. It took me awhile to get used to this writing style.
The ending is very different from the film. The book seems to emphasize the theme of evolution, while the film focuses more on time travel. I liked the book, but I like the film series mo The book is similar to the film series in certain ways, but different enough to provide a new approach to the main subject.

It’s a quick and easy read and quite the ripping yarn. Our human hero, Ulysse, is an appealing and compassionate intellectual, no “damn dirty apes” outcries here. Our chimp protangonists, Zira and Cornelious, are good natured but not hopelessly romantacized “good guys”. They are only human after all Aspects of the book show up in the assorted movies but no theatrical version stays true to the intentions of the book which questions our ideas of intelligence and creativity It’s a quick and easy read and quite the ripping yarn.
Aspects of the book show up in the assorted movies but no theatrical version stays true to the intentions of the book which questions our ideas of intelligence and creativity. It is not the Ape revolution we need to fear, it’s our own complacency and mental stagnation. Then read another one. I for one, enjoy being the dominant species on Earth and hope that the video of a monkey washing a cat never ceases to be hilarious! View all 3 comments. Interesting story about the evolutionary replacement of human beings by apes as the dominant species.
It contains a number of scientific mistakes, both the novel and its famous film adaptation of the nineteen sixties.
That was definitely not what I expected. Only 2 weeks ago I would say that science fiction stories are my favourite. Well, I have to say that Pierre Boulle has changed my mind as to this type of books.
The thing I liked the most was the Ulysse Merou’s attempts to comunicate with Zira, the “she-ape” as author named her. I was shocked while I was reading fragments with descriptions of how apes were treating humans. I read a lot of That was definitely not what I expected. I read a lot of books but I have never been so absorbed in them.
I’m not sure what was the reason of it, but I suppose that it might have been caused by interesting descriptions of bouole on unknown planet and the fast action.
I would recommend this book to everyone, no matter the age. I think I may become a keen reader of this type of books. It was pretty good and I didn’t have to visualize Marky Mark as the main character. It had apes flying spaceships with solar sails and it had some brain surgery body horror stuff in it.
La Planète des Singes
However the original movie had a lot similarities to the book. It was a different thing but the movie got some stuff right. Un 69 evoluzionistico Il 69 mi piace.
Il capovolgimento dei fronti, e a volte il fronte comune per capovolgersi. I can see blulle Planet of the Apes became a classic but truth be told, I don’t really think it merits that status.
It is an interesting read in a way though. The Hollywood adaptation of it differs considerably from the original although the remake is closer to the book. In fact, the story is changed to such an extent that the end of the novel will come as a surprise to readers who are only familiar with the classic movies. I thought the difference between the novel and he movie adaptatio
