Reviews

  • 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
