"Fan of Narnia books finds Out of the Silent Planet an Excellent SyFy and an interesting change of styles"
I absolutely LOVE Narnia, and while browsing for similar writings from Lewis, found this one, and enjoyed it.
In this wildly creative book we travel and adventure with a linguist named Ransom as he is taken agents his will to world of Mars.
After escaping Ransom meets and interacts with the creatures of the plant learning there ways and language.
This book has great biblical and epic themes it deals with Angels, gods and the absurdity of man.
Should read first as it is the first of three books beautiful narrated and worth your while!
What a book what an adventure!
This book was fantastic! Lewis is always so poetic and descriptive in anything that he writes! I have always respected him and Tolkien for their ability to create whole universes, worlds, languages, cultures, and so on in stories, all the while silently interweaving the history and tenets of the Christian faith so that others may come to know Christ as well. Even if the underlying truth is not realized, this is still a great novel to enjoy for any science fiction or fantasy fan. I highly recommend it to anyone. Also the audio and narration quality by Geoffrey Howard was stellar and he sold it as a performance like any good voice actor would do rather than just reading lines.
