"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.
First let it be said that this book is beautiful, amazing, & mind expanding! Whatever format or method one can find to ingest this story, one should do so. That being said, the accent, eloquence, and rhythm with which the reader tells the story fits so well to its elegance. However, if I were forced to criticize anything about this audiobook it would be that at times perhaps the reader is a little over-devoted to an elegant rhythm when the story is far more exciting than his voice makes obvious. But he does not fail at translating excitement. He simply doesnt do so in any sensational fashion that some might prefer. He is a classy reader of stories. I am thankful for this experience.
I typically struggle to finish books, but this one I have read twice now. it will give you deeper insight to Christianity, and is sure to
I love how Perelandra is an adventure story rapped around deep theology.
Geoffrey Howard did a fantastic job reading this book.
brilliantly written book. Very deep. Lewis takes you on a journey that will make you realizes the depths of your own being through its imagery. It will create in you that longing for a word that is not your own, or Lewis would say it is your own.
