I downloaded this for road trips. There are two reasons why this is an excellent purchase.

1) C.S. Lewis is brilliant. His grasp of how space travel would happen and of spirituality is very gripping.

2) The person reading the book did an excellent job.

We listened to it over 4 trips. It made the drive something to look forward too! I am about to download the next two in the series.
