Following strange reports from cosmonauts, psychologist Kris Kelvin is sent to a space station orbiting the distant planet of Solaris, to look into the mental condition of the three remaining inhabitants. Dr. Gibarian has suicided; in oblique terms Dr. Snaut warns of others walking the station; Dr. Sartorius has secluded himself in his laboratory, speaking only through a crack in the door. The ocean of Solaris is intelligent, making their thoughts physical; Kelvin soon meets Hari, his deceased wife. Highly original first contact, with an otherworldliness above and beyond anything before or since. Requires patience.
