The Ice People by René Barjavel (Book Analysis): Detailed Summary, Analysis and Reading Guide. A friend gave me a collection of Rene Barjavel's stories for my birthday, and "La Nuit des Temps" is one of the many incredible stories in that collection that really took my breath away. I was amazed that he is not well known in the US. One of the most enduring qualities of his works is not that he focuses on the "sci-fi" aspect; the heart of his stories lie in the human condition.

I then read most of Barjavel's book.

She also hints at an incredibly advanced knowledge her still-dormant companion possesses, knowledge that could give energy & food to all humans at no cost.

First published in 1968 by Les Presses de la Cité. It was translated into English by C.L. Markham & a number of companies published The Ice People in the early 1970s.
  • I read this book back in the 70's, and I have tried to find it again for a long time, but it seemed to be out of print. I never understood why no one has ever turned it into a movie. This is sci-fi at its best. The first translation I read was in Portuguese, and it was excellent. The English versoin contains phrases that do not make a lot of sense, and I am sure it was due to the translation. I still recommend reading it.

  • This is a childhood book in which I have been searching for, having found it I enjoyed reading it again. Has a Stargate Atlantis feel to it. Maybe they got that idea from this book.

  • In context (given the date of publication of 1971), it seems to pre-sage lots of later SciFi to come. It's a quick read and well worth anyone's time

  • I found this book in a library at least 30 years ago and never forgot it - It's my favorite book - ever. I found it deeply moving and meaningful. I was delighted to find it on Amazon so I could read it again - and it was still wonderful. I just wish Hollywood would make a movie of it - but it's probably not mainstream enough for them.

  • A friend gave me a collection of Rene Barjavel's stories for my birthday, and "La Nuit des Temps" is one of the many incredible stories in that collection that really took my breath away. I was amazed that he is not well known in the US. One of the most enduring qualities of his works is not that he focuses on the "sci-fi" aspect; the heart of his stories lie in the human condition. I hope all his novels will be translated and that collections of his work will be published and made available in the US. During his lifetime, Barjavel believed that the novel in its classic form is dead and that the future of novels lie in Science Fiction. If we have more writers as insightful and masterful at storytelling as Barjavel, I'd say he would have been right.

  • I bought the book upon recommendation of a personal friend
    I enjoyed reading it as it was the first time I had read SiFi, as my preference is historic novels, history, biography
    I would recommend it to anyone who I knew liked SiFi. It was an interesting story about cryogenics and life restoration, probably more relevant today than when it was written. The aspect of the 900,000 years made it fascinating. The global wars were too far out for me.

  • I read this book in Spanish first and I fell inlove with it. I am not into Science Fiction but this is my first and last. I also bought the English version and I just loved it as much. I assure you that I am an avid reader and I am not afraid that this will be one of MY top 10 books. Worth every penny of it.

  • this novel was so well written and touched on so many notes of human psychology that I have thought about it for more than forty years(I love a good Sci-fi). I read this when I was 12 and it came out in paperback,never forgot about it and you probably won't either,
