It's hard to believe this book was written seventy years ago. Jack's insight into human nature and the decline of morality is rather scary. Very enjoyable dialogue and exciting story.
I truly enjoyed this book more than either of the other two. They were good but this one spoke to me much more.
This is indeed a type of science fiction you walk away from and have doubts that it isn't reality. The same feeling happened after reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Great story, but after reading I couldn't help but feel tired. Exhausted from the rich content afforded me to think about.
I found it difficult to get engaged with the story and characters, and I missed the fairytale worlds and deep philosophical discussions of the first two books.
I have been a fan of Lewis' space trilogy since I was in high school (very early 80s)!! Having this on Audible to hear whenever I wish is a true treasure, I am not particularly religious but this book ALWAYS reminds me to make sure that it is well with my soul! If you love SciFi and are stuck...take ""
"That Hideous Strength " out for a test drive, you will love the way it handles on the corners!!! Enjoy
Power through the first hump of the book! It is worth it. And the dullness IS necessary in the end! This is a real eye opening conclusion to the series. I loved every one of the books immensely! I look for the extra long books on audible bc i listen as work do I didn't mind the little boring beginning to this.
I love C. S. Lewis and this book was one of his best. I read the entire Space Trilogy, but so enjoyed listening to this last one.
The story line and descriptions were great. It hit home with the point of being moved in directions I did not want to go just to be somebody.
