Brilliant Lewis!

by John K on Jul 12, 2012

Lewis's Space trilogy is a brilliant work, richly imaginative, a gripping story with deep themes. I rank it with Lord of the Rings as a must-read. More

First book of an amazing trilogy

by Khlit on Jun 22, 2009

This is one of C.S. Lewis' lesser known, but no less amazing works. Its a philosophical, psychological, theological, and scientific work of fiction. Those who loved Narnia will love this book. More

Out of the Silent Planet

Lewis' writing style is flowing, his ideas timeless and his delivery both profound and universal. However `Out ... More

Great old-fashioned science fiction

by Matthew on Dec 17, 2007

When I was a child I loved Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia; as a teenager, I loved his space trilpgy, of which this is the first book. The story is engaging and the writing good, if a bit old-fashioned. To be honest, fiction was not Lewis's strongest point; his theological writing deserves that honor. ... More
