    I think Pierre Boulle s novel Planet of the Apes is a social fantasy, an allegory for revealing our civilization as blindly mimicking our past, as aping the good and bad of what has come before 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.Or it s a fun science fiction book about chim I think Pierre Boulle s novel Planet of the Apes is a social fantasy, an allegory for revealing our civilization as blindly mimicking our past, as aping the good and bad of what has come before 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.Or it s a fun science fiction book about chimps, orangutans and gorillas ruling a planet.Written by Pierre Boule and first published in 1963, as La Plan te des singes, this bears a closer literary resemblance to Edgar Rice Burroughs or Jules Verne than to modern science fiction Boulle himself, the author of The Bridge Over the River Kwai, described the novel as a social fantasy There is a scene of racial memory that is especially noteworthy, but a fine work throughout I can say after reading the original novel that all of the films have been loosely based upon Boulle s literature although the most recent series may ultimately be the closest to Boulle s vision I am coming to believe that the 1960s were the zenith of science fiction and this is a good example

    French writer Pierre Boulle 1912 1994 made use of his experience as a soldier in WWII in depicting the relationship of apes and men in this 1963 book, Planet of the Apes. While stationed in Indochina in 1943, he 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 1912 1994 made use of his experience as a soldier in WWII in depicting the relationship of apes and men in this 1963 book, Planet of the Apes. While stationed in Indochina in 1943, he 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 reviews as this example from England s Guardian newspaperClassic science fictionfull of suspense and satirical intelligenceI agree to this 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 sister , revolves 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 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 in stature, job title, wealth, skin color, etc But in reality, we don t realize that they can bethan 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 and we look down on people who read other books not 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 imagination, will never happen, yadda, yadda But hey, how about this main theme that I deduced from this book

thought that it was brilliant 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 muchthan 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 that Boulle just plain hated live animal experiments and was determined to show people that the tables could be turned one day Easily Butthan 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 will tell if we stay there 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 We re so filled with pride that we 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 They imitate us, so WOULD they do it better 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 themAnd then I thought to myself,Oh, snap So do weWe can justify anything And so can Apes, who apparently learned from the best In examining the 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 isthan we ve accomplished so far Our differences divide us, but the Apes recognize and relish their differences and use them well But Apes still seem to rival Man in the fear department the unknown is scary, so just destroy it and move on.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 But it reminded me of a quote from another science fiction book that I enjoyed, Solaris by Stanislaw Lem which you should remember if you keep up with my reviews We take off into the cosmos, ready for anything for solitude, for hardship, for exhaustion, death Modesty forbids us to say so, but there are times when we think pretty well of ourselves And yet, if we examine itclosely, our enthusiasm turns out to be all sham We don t want to conquer 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 thebasin 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 need mirrors We don t know what to do with other worlds We arrive here as we are in reality, and when the page is turned and that reality is revealed to us that part of our reality which we would prefer to pass over in silence then we don t like it any Oh, it s so apt We inherently assume that anyone of any worth or intelligence will be just like us Even the Little Green Men type aliens that pop up in the Weekly World News magazines are still modeled after humans, and hell, they are nicknamed men I just hope that one day we ll be able to see the bigger picture.I do want to mention two things that I wish were clarified a littlein the book I d been told that the twist in the book was different than the twist in the movie I had had a theory that somehow during the journey from Earth, something got mixed up and the planet they landed on WAS Earth, only far in the future Since it seems that was not correct, I m confused as to how two planets so distant actually would be so very similar The two main races Apes and humans are the same genetically or so it seems as Merou was able to successfully mate with an alien human , and there are several other animals that are similar Not to mention the society and transportation etc It just seems so unlikely that Soror would be so similar to Earth without knowing of its existence And speaking of which, that brings me to the second thing Merou named the planet Soror prior to meeting any sentient beings Didn t they have their own name for the planet I cannot believe that throughout ANY of the discussions they had regarding the origins of their species, or space travel, or anything, that they did not once say, Oh, and by the way, we call our planet Apex Haha, get it But really, that point bothered me in the story Anyway, Aside from those two points, I thought that this was a really great book I hope that everyone gets a chance to read it one day

    Originally written in 1963 by the same author who brought us The Bridge Over the River Kwai, this book will most likely be remembered for the many movies that were based on it s premise of a world where the roles of apes and men are reversed Originally written in French, the main character in the novel is Ulysse M rou A journalist who took part in the space expedition that lands on Soror, a planet orbiting the star Betelgeuse There is some argument as to whether the book can be considered sci Originally written in 1963 by the same author who brought us The Bridge Over the River Kwai, this book will most likely be remembered for the many movies that were based on it s premise of a world where the roles of apes and men are reversed Originally written in French, the main character in the novel is Ulysse M rou A journalist who took part in the space expedition that lands on Soror, a planet orbiting the star Betelgeuse 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 Personally,I tend to see most science fiction as a study of society so I m not going to say this isn t it Bottom line PotA is an entertaining read but not extremely imaginative I listened to the audio version recorded by Greg Wise in 2012 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 and 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
