"Geoffrey Howard's skilled narration keeps the listener riveted. His scholarly handling of the text minimizes characterization, while easily distinguishing the players. Howard's respect for the subject matter equals Lewis's own and entices the listener to address serious questions of temptation and morality." (AudioFile)
Lewis tells a fair yarn but the interesting thing is his thinking on the state of Man in the universe. If your looking for escapist fiction, this isn't it. The science is half baked and the dialogue contrived. The ideas, however, are worth pondering.
Since discovering audible, my life is richer. I live in a small rural KS community, with higher than average IQ which can be a bad combo at times. Audible allows me to be myself.
I am not sure what I exptected but this is a great listen. It helped me understand what Eve must have been like in the garden.
Infinite Circles within the Sphere. Lewis opens the mind to a world of hidden planets and beings beyond this planet, yet near to the hearts of those who chose to explore.
With the help of a trans solar coffin Dr. Ransom explores Venus. Lands on float of water a land of gold and pleasure. It is a reimagined Garden of Eden...with Biblical undertones and the great question of good and evil... Life and death...
If you are a fan of C.S. Lewis this books for you!
Great narration very beautiful in its description wonderfully imaginative.
I loved the book and the beautiful core of Godliness and hope for each man, woman and all of God's creatures.
Geoffrey Howard's style is very similar to CSL's speaking style. Re the book itself, the writing style is the opposite of that in the Narnia nooks. Instead of telling a story that reaches a moral, CSL uses the story yo frame the conversations that teach the moral.
Great performance of a story of interplanetary travel written before man landed on the moon. A new twist on a medieval morality tale done well.
If you need a book to bring you encouragement and hope in the Risen King, this is it!
