Review:

"A scintillating mix of sci-fi adventure and allegory" ( Los Angeles Times)

"In 1963, at the most glacial moment of the Cold War, Frenchman Pierre Boulle wrote a novel called Planet Of The Apes - a drastic warning about where mankind's apparent desire to destroy itself might lead" ( The Mirror)

"Boulle called on his own experiences as a prisoner of war in South-east Asia during the Second World War, using the relationship between man and apes as a metaphor for the treatment handed out to prisoners by brutish Japanese guards" ( Daily Express)

"It's like a good myth or fairy-tale that stays with you... Part of the strength of this material is its disruptive, questioning nature. Who came first? Where are we going?" (Tim Burton)

"The subtext is strongly anti-slavery, anti-racist and anti-war" ( Observer)

Book Description:

A chilling dystopian vision of the ultimate role reversal, a cult hit since the 1960s
