"A delightful fantasy." (New York Herald Tribune)
"C.S. Lewis...is a master of fantasy." (Saturday Review)
C. S. Lewis knows how to write good sci-fi. I never read the same book twice, but this one I would read again and again. His description of the protagonist's first moments aboard the spacecraft stick in my mind as an example of his mastery of this form. I would recommend this book to any lover of science fiction or simply quality storytelling.
We need such stories which address conclusions of what we believe about the world and life. It underscores the question of not just why materialist beliefs are preferred but why they are such strong beliefs.
A great book, a great performance, five stars. I have listen to the book 3 times now, and intend to listen to it more. I also recommend the other books in the trilogy.
The narrator was decent. I felt like he could have been more emotional and created some more pause between dialog instead of his monologue of rhythm that barely stops. The story takes a tiny bit to get into but is absolutely fantastic once into it. Like all great stories it leaves you longing for that other world. For Lewis that world is heaven.
The narration is well-done and the story is interesting, but slow-moving.
Haven't heard any others.
