"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)
I didn't like this book at all but I felt like I should finish it to understand book three of the trilogy. However in the prolog Lewis says that book three can stand alone.
Perelandra has a lot of gory details that I could personally live without. We get to hear (constantly) how the devil is going to try to destroy Perelandra the same way he did earth. Over and over again. If you hated me saying the word over two times you will hate this book. If Lewis would have trimmed a couple of hours off this grueling tale it might have been a little more manageable. I don't know if men would enjoy it more. They might be able to get past the blood and guts a little easier than a woman. I loved Narnia but this is not Narnia. Skip to book 3
