    In this, the final book in C.S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which includes Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra, That Hideous Strength concludes the adventures of the matchless Dr. Ransom.

    Maybe you're all for human cloning and pushing the scientific exploitation of man as resource. You won't like this book. Lewis paints the future bleak where man is just another hunk of meat to use for some purpose. Where ever you are on the argument, you might want to read this as a pretty good exposition of the negatives that could be inherent in perceiving man as just another pile of stuff to bend to the will of... Well, that's it, isn't it. Who, exactly, gets to call the shots? Lewis achieves better narrative drive in this, the last volume of the Space Trilogy. It really does work as a pretty good thriller.
