It is strange to me how often Lewis is mentioned as a leading Christian apologist, since his views on Christianity tend to be neither conventional nor well constructed Of course, he s not taken seriously by Biblical scholars or theologians I suspect this is because his Jesus is a cartoon lion and his God is a space alien.As Michael Moorcock pointed out, the prominent tone in both Tolkien and Lewis is condescension, and I admit my general impression of Lewis is that he s talking down to the audie [...]

First of all, this book has a cool title I mean, seriously Out of the Silent Planet Say it to yourself a couple times It sounds pretty, almost spooky, sort of dramatic and enigmatic Ooh Man, I love a good title I also love a good allegory And it s my opinion that C.S Lewis pretty much wrote the best allegories Like, for real dude This is like The Chronicles of Narnia for big people I m still partial to the childlikeness of The Chronicles though So basically, this book is about a man named Ransom [...]

You don t review C.S Lewis He reviews you.

Not C.S Lewis s best or most popular book for every person who reads this, there must be at least ten who read Narnia However, the exchange between the humans and the Oyarsa the angelic ruler of Malacandra Mars is extremely effective satire, and deserves to be better known Ransom is the only one in the party who has been able to acquire any fluency in Malacandran He is given the task of translating Weston s fascist rant, which he clearly rather enjoys Speak to Ransom and he shall turn it into ou [...]

3.5 stars _Out of the Silent Planet_ is the start of C S Lewis Space Trilogy a series that, for me at least, comprises his best works of fiction I ve never been much of a fan of the Narnia books and Till We Have Faces fell totally flat for me so aside from his purely academic texts this is generally the series I go to when I want to read Lewis In a nutshell the Space Trilogy documents the adventures of academic and philologist Elwin Ransom as he finds himself embroiled in events of cosmic signif [...]

I read this book and its companion volumes Perelandra and That Hideous Strength sometime after college, which must have been in the early eighties I have re read all three books numerous times since then.The books show Lewis deep love of and knowledge of European literature and languages I stand in awe of his ability to bring together elements of Scandinavian and Celtic and Greek and Roman and English literature to create a universe that can hold the galaxy spanning intellects of the eldila and [...]

I read this first about 7 or 8 years ago, but found it difficult to get through This time it was over too soon I felt like I was on Malacandra myself and feel like I experienced everything that went on as much as Ransom, the main character in the book Lewis explores philosophical questions that if not discussed in the context of another species existence would strike me as really basic by discussing these questions in the setting of another world, he refreshes them and has insights that we often [...]

3.5 stars First book in the classic Space Trilogy by C S Lewis Much like the Chronicles of Narnia, this story has a very Christian feel to it and deals with the nature of the universe, the struggle of good and evil and the status of Earth as The Silent Planet Well written, entertaining and thought provoking.

After all the post cyberpunk, Steampunk, New Weird, Post Singularity, Post Scarcity etc books I have been reading lately it is nice to turn to an old school sf book for a change of pace and a bit of coziness Out of the Silent Planet is in fact of a science fantasy than something you would expect Asimov, Heinlein or Clarke to write C.S Lewis is best known and loved for his wonderful Narnia books, where religious allegory is woven into exciting and wondrous fantasy adventures aimed primarily at c [...]

Originally posted at FanLit.You probably know that C.S Lewis was a Christian apologist who wrote many popular books both fiction and nonfiction which explain or defend the Christian faith His most famous work, THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, some of the most loved stories in all of fantasy fiction and children s literature, is clearly Christian allegory Likewise, his science fiction SPACE TRILOGY can be read as allegory, though it s subtle enough to be enjoyed by those who don t appreciate allegorical [...]

CS Lewis once wrote a poem entitled An Expostulation Against Too Many Writers of Science Fiction In it, he complains that science fiction writers transport us light years away, only to give us the same old stuff we left behindories of crooks, spies, conspirators, or love He then asks why he should leave the Earth unless outside its guarded gates, long, long desired, the Unearthly waits It s easy to see his point Most of the science fiction written during his lifetime were twice told tales set on [...]

Around the turn of the last century and a little before, a number of 19th century writers turned their hand to a brand new genre Nowadays we call it Steampunk, which is just a hipster name for Science Fiction written during the late Victorian and pre WWI years.Most of them painted a bleakish picture of our future Maybe they were afraid of change or had a pessimistic view of man s ability to rein in the technological age the industrial age was ushering in There were many unknown factors Would the [...]

If the Chronicles of Narnia are C.S Lewis attempt and a wonderful one to write Christian children s fables, then this trilogy seems to be his attempt to write Christian science fiction.Note The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision here.In the meantime, you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook

Rereading, in print this time The library had the audio for this and recalling how audio has helped me through other books which left me cold in print Jonathan Strange Mr Norrell, for example and also knowing how many people have urged me to read this trilogy I am attempting it for the third time.All this is to say that I am 36 minutes in and for a second I almost forgot what I was listening to, because I felt as if C.S Lewis were telling me about John Carter of Mars another book I ve never been [...]

I liked it It wasn t my favorite C.S Lewis book, but it was very creative especially at a time where space travel hadn t actually happened yet.

In the decade or so since I first read Lewis Space Trilogy, I ve re read Perelandra once and That Hideous Strength many times, but never till now returned to the the first in the series.It s a short read, and might be called light if not for the fact that as with most of Lewis fiction, the you understand of what Lewis knew and studied and believed, the you ll get out of the tale I m not referring just to Christianity This book made me wish I understood astronomy much than I do Lewis, as Micha [...]

Fantastic trilogy.Here we get to meet Ransom and follow him on a trip to Mars Lewis sets up an allegorical story somewhat heavily influenced by his classical education it must be admitted A thought provoking work His picture of God and the angelic beings brought to mind for me somewhat, the picture painted in The Silmarillion by J.R.R.Tolkien maybe that shouldn t be that surprising as they were friends and read their work to each other also discussing it with each other as well as the other Inkl [...]

Through his Cosmic Trilogy, and in opposition to the Wellsian archetype, C.S Lewis attempts to carefully reconstruct the common, horrific fallacy that falls under what or rather who lies in outer space He offers a supposedly fictionalised account of Martian events which, in a way, scoffs at the purely scientific intellect, and is thoroughly nourished with incorporeal elements which, again, contrive to set pleasant connotations for alienness.

C.S Lewis does this thing while I m reading his books that makes me feel like I m slogging through deep, mystifying waters, but the moment I reach the end and see the larger picture I think Oh That was brilliant It took my three months to get through this 158 page book, the smallest book I ve read this year If a friend hadn t told me to read it, I probably would have abandoned it, but I m glad I made it all the way through The reason this book has three stars was because this book is deep, and i [...]

I m going to go ahead and say it I liked this better than Chronicles of Narnia C.S Lewis created such a beautiful, immersive, believable science fiction world that follows quite obviously in the H.G Wells tradition I loved the species of intelligent creatures he created, the language, and the descriptions of the landscapes.Also, I thought this was a really cool way of combining Christian traditions about good, evil, sin, etc with an old universe and even with evolution All in all, I m marking th [...]

There is a certain breed of science fiction that I tend to sneer at These usually contain made up languages, strange creatures, and some sort of, this is the first time in HISTORY that motif See also The first time two tributes survived, the first time our test showed someone as divergent, the first time someone so young showed such rare promise In listing these three details I realize that I am likely describing much of what science fiction is made up things loosely based in reality during chan [...]

I enjoyed this book for the abstract ideas behind the story than the plot itself although Lewis creativity in developing a foreign world, several alien species and a foreign language is notable.There are some very intriguing ideas about the nature of our world, mankind, and existence behind the story Lewis examines society s preoccupation with trying to extend the lives of ourselves, our world, and our species as a whole No matter how hard man tries, be it through medicine or good health, we ca [...]

Aug 2016 better than I remembered it Still weird But now that I have the entire series in my head, this one has a lot depth than I realized.January 2014 I read this a decade ago and remember not being overly impressed I think that I am satisfied with it this time but I still find it to be slow and overly descriptive I am 46% and am invested but not gripped.Finished Not my favorite Lewis book, slow and laborious start but it grew into quite a good tale I understand now that it really has inform [...]

This book was a little hard for me to understand and get through, and I think part of that had to do with my trying to visualize the descriptions, and failing Not only that, but the conversations that Ransom has with some of the creatures about life and that sort of thing confused me.Other than that, the book was good, but I wasn t crazy about it.

I don t have the nerve to rate it It was OK I like parts of it.I m no lover of sci fi, and Lewis failed to convert me I keep thinking there is a deep meaning to the story, but I can t seem to enter into this imaginative world I know there s a code here, but I don t have the key Take the names Why Ransom Why Maleldil mal evil, el god, dil Why Oyarsa Are they random or do they have meaning if you are skilled in languages I liked Lewis s nomination of the evil god as The Bent One.The weakest of my [...]

First published in 1938, this is the first volume of Lewis s Space Trilogy I read this series when I was about 12 a young Narnia fan looking for of the same I was pretty bewildered, but it s always stayed in my mind as very interesting in weird ways I didn t understand Recently, I d been thinking of reading it again, and even made sure I had it on my Kindle on holiday, in case I finished the books I d brought Then, browsing through the Queenstown Hospice Shop s used books, what did I see but a [...]

I waffled between a 2 and 3 stars, because I did not personally enjoy this book much The long winded descriptions reminded me why I hate The Last Battle, and the main character was too much of an everyman without a real personality to serve as an engaging point of view However What makes Lewis work great is his ability to deal with matters of the soul and religion in a sincere and visceral way without a trace of sentimentality It is easier for an author to seek catharsis with something horrible, [...]

First read Out of the Silent Plant back in 2005 I know I appreciated it much this time C S Lewis is one of those authors whose value grows as you get to know him Not only does Lewis take his readers to other worlds but he also teaches new ways of seeing our own world We learn to look through the eyes of other beings with values not so different from our own just fully realized in the world in which they inhabit Lewis thought outside the box long before the term came into vogue In Silent he sho [...]

It is interesting, and wholly fortuitous, that I read this book almost immediately after H.G Wells s The First Men in the Moon In that book, one of the two characters on the expedition attempts to communicate with the Selenites, while is partner is little than a 19th century conquistador.In Out of the Silent Planet, author C.S Lewis has one character Ransom kidnapped by Devine and Weston, who are interested primarily in exploiting the gold on Mars called Malacandra in the book Ransom escapes fr [...]
