The Planet of the Apes: Pierre Boulle

by Andy

 

A book that spawned an industry of tie-ins and spin-offs and gave Charlton Heston a legitimate excuse to run  dementedly about a beach in a loin cloth and emote for all he was worth.  But despite its many (mostly) lame connotations, the original novel (this book you’re about to buy) is really rather remarkably good.  Really.
