hope it's like the book
I haven't seen the movie, I didn't even know it existed, but I intend to as soon as I possibly can. Until then I hope this review can educate better than no review. I read the book of short stories by Adolfo Bioy Casares last year, and it was one of the most amazing sci-fi works I've ever come across. The narrator is left on an the island of (the late?) Dr. Morel, and begins to have convincing visions of a woman who seems to interact with him but who refuses to acknowledge his presence. Wondering whether she is leading him into a trap or really doesn't notice him, or if he is merely going insane, he follows her back to the still humming remnants of Dr. Morel's laboratory and discovers the truth is more fantastic and insane than his own human mind could conjure. Very typical of Iberian/South American fantastic fiction, the author manages to transport you to another world without using any high-tech gadgets, weapons, vehicles, or the other crutches American sci-fi is so famous for. He simply relies on concepts common to us all, combining and folding them into something that can give us a vision into what it means to be human. If you liked Solaris, this is your kind of story.
