Description

Perelandra is a planet of pleasure, an unearthly, misty world of strange desires, sweet smells, and delicious tastes, where beasts are friendly and naked beauty is unashamed, a new Garden of Eden, where the story of the oldest temptation is enacted in an intriguingly new way. Here, in the second part of the trilogy, Dr. Ransom's adventures continue against the backdrop of a religious allegory that, while it may seem quaint in its treatment of women today, nonetheless shows the capability of science to be an evil force tempting a ruler away from the path that has produced a paradisiac kingdom.

Old truths, through fresh eyes
A great follow up to the first book with clear theological overtones and old lessons leaned through fresh eyes in a new space.

It is a great exploration of innocence, evil and the potential destiny of a redeemed humanity.

A small let down is the conflagration of the biblical narrative with the evolutionary one, not offensive just muddled.

Another Lewis masterpiece, worth the read. His wordplay, prose and imagery is brilliant.

A letdown from book 1
I had hopes that this would be better. But there's so much description of the landscape and various life forms, as well as what's going on in the mind of the main character.
