Tied for the best.
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.
Very similar to his reading of Out of the Silent Planet (the first of this "space trilogy").
I chuckled at parts, felt heartbreak and nearly teared up at parts, but mostly was engrossed in awe.
C. S. Lewis is a more than competent allegorical storyteller. Read his works and be changed.
