    Perelandra is a planet of pleasure, an unearthly, misty world of strange desires, sweet smells, and delicious tastes, where beasts are friendly and naked beauty is unashamed, a new Garden of Eden, where the story of the oldest temptation is enacted in an intriguingly new way.

    Tim says: "An Insightful Look at the Nature of Temptation"
    "Entertaining, insightful, theological? I want more"

    Where does Perelandra rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Tied for the best.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's not a character-based story, so this is a tough question. If pressed, I'd say the green woman of Venus, who represents pre-fall/pre-sin humanity. A fantastically beautiful depiction of what was, could, and ought to be--but unfortunately isn't status quo.


    Have you listened to any of Geoffrey Howard’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Very similar to his reading of Out of the Silent Planet (the first of this "space trilogy").


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled at parts, felt heartbreak and nearly teared up at parts, but mostly was engrossed in awe.


    Any additional comments?

    C. S. Lewis is a more than competent allegorical storyteller. Read his works and be changed.
