An excellent science fiction book- a classic of the genre. For fans of the movies you should definitely read this- it's better than any of the adaptations.

It's glitching. I can't return it, or download it. I've downloaded 2 other books today, so I think I have a bad file. Still, I am disappointed.

Ok... Not as good as the film to be honest.

This is one of the greatest books ever written, 20 times better than the movies. I love how it is written, suspenseful, satirical and always making you wonder what will happen next. Move over, Curious George, there is a way better monkey in town.

I was glad to see these recent reviews. I've always liked the various Planet of the Apes films (some more than others--the first one was the best), but above all I liked the original novel by Pierre Boulle. Someone aptly described it as being descended from Jonathan Swift on one hand and Jules Verne on the other.

Although the story is known, with differences to the movie(s) makes for an interesting and quick read

This book is both beautifully written and wonderfully descriptive. It is the true definition of science-fiction; filled with social conflict and a shocking twist at the end that I think not even the author himself could've expected. It definitely wasn't what I expected: and I love it for that!
