Excellent story, beautiful imagery and language, and thought-provoking dialogue. Geoffrey Howard captures the characters' personality and depth in his performance. This is one of my favorite fictional works of all time and this version is awesome!
Lewis has disguised a discourse as a fiction. It involves a great deal of talk. It is profound, however, and explains the concept of evil and its origins in an eloquent manner.
This is an intense book. well worth a read. I will probably read it again. there is such great depth that I am sure there is much more that I have missed. I give it 5 stars, and it has earned every one of them. I would give it more stars if it were possible.
Infinite Circles within the Sphere. Lewis opens the mind to a world of hidden planets and beings beyond this planet, yet near to the hearts of those who chose to explore.
With the help of a trans solar coffin Dr. Ransom explores Venus. Lands on float of water a land of gold and pleasure. It is a reimagined Garden of Eden...with Biblical undertones and the great question of good and evil... Life and death...
If you are a fan of C.S. Lewis this books for you!
Great narration very beautiful in its description wonderfully imaginative.
I loved the book and the beautiful core of Godliness and hope for each man, woman and all of God's creatures.
Geoffrey Howard's style is very similar to CSL's speaking style. Re the book itself, the writing style is the opposite of that in the Narnia nooks. Instead of telling a story that reaches a moral, CSL uses the story yo frame the conversations that teach the moral.
Great performance of a story of interplanetary travel written before man landed on the moon. A new twist on a medieval morality tale done well.
