I love how Perelandra is an adventure story rapped around deep theology.
Geoffrey Howard did a fantastic job reading this book.
brilliantly written book. Very deep. Lewis takes you on a journey that will make you realizes the depths of your own being through its imagery. It will create in you that longing for a word that is not your own, or Lewis would say it is your own.
Mixed bag. Parts of it were engaging and imaginative. A couple of parts droned on and (the ending) left a poor final impression on what was otherwise a generally decent book
CS Lewis dives deep into a fantastical journey to another world. And witnesses a play by the antagonist of all ancient times. Lewis challenges your thoughts as he navigates you through psychological and theological deep waters on a terrain of a celestial planet.
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.
