This almost won the 1st book of 2014 vote so it's only fair that we give this book a read!
Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle is French science fiction novel published in 1963.
Most of you will have seen the films and from what I understand, the novel is very different. Should be a really interesting one to read.
