Description

Out of the Silent Planet is the first novel of the Cosmic Trilogy, considered to be C.S. Lewis' chief contribution to the science fiction genre. The trilogy concerns Dr. Ransom, a linguist, who, like Christ, was offered a ransom for mankind. The first two novels are planetary romances with elements of medieval mythology. Each planet is seen as having a tutelary spirit; those of the other planets are both good and accessible, while that of Earth is fallen, twisted, and not known directly by most humans. The story is powerfully imagined, and the effects of lesser gravity on Martian planet and animal life is vividly rendered.

I really enjoyed this
I really enjoyed this. Very funny at points. The theological lessons are clear too. The new language helps to simplify profound truths and helps us see common truth through a fresh lens.

Excellent
This is a wonderful book. One of Lewis' best. This audio version is very well read, and with an English accent which is appropriate considering the book's source. I strongly recommend it.

wonderful reader
The reader is very good. He's easy to listen to and follow. The reason for 4 stars, instead of 5, is b/c the tracks are not by chapter, but several chapters on one track, and sometimes a chapter is split across 2 tracks.
