They christened the planet Soror. They landed without a jolt - three men and a pet monkey. They were pleased to see that life existed. But humans here were nothing but naked animals. The master race were apes. Apes that dressed like men and hunted humans for their sport.

Planet of the Apes Summary

Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle

A witty, ironical tale a la Voltaire, full of sharp views about the relationship between men and animals. Boulle depicted a world where humankind has lost its position at the dominant species and apes rule over human savages. The story is set in the year 2500. In the spirit of Gulliver's Travels, a French journalist travels to another planet, where the apes are intelligent and humans are exhibited in zoos. The book differs in many ways from the film. When Boulle wanted to question our superiority above other animals, the film reveals in the climax the past and destroyed glory of the humankind, symbolised by the ruined, half-buried remains of the Statue of Liberty.
