Publisher Comments:

The first book in C. S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which continues with Perelandra and That Hideous Strength, Out of the Silent Planet begins the adventures of the remarkable Dr. Ransom. Here, that estimable man is abducted by a megalomaniacal physicist and his accomplice and taken via spaceship to the red planet of Malacandra. The two men are in need of a human sacrifice, and Dr. Ransom would seem to fit the bill. Once on the planet, however, Ransom eludes his captors, risking his life and his chances of returning to Earth, becoming a stranger in a land that is enchanting in its difference from Earth and instructive in its similarity. First published in 1943, Out of the Silent Planet remains a mysterious and suspenseful tour de force.

Anaya, September 1, 2006 (view all comments by Anaya)
I was surprised and delighted to find C.S. Lewis' works was acclaimed for series other than the famous "Chronicles of Narnia." The Space Trilogy begins with Lewis' fascinating tale "Out of the Silent Space" - an old-fashioned sci-fi/fantasy tale reminiscent of H.G. Wells. A good story coupled with a reasonable and intellectual tone worthy of the sci-fi genre that revolves around religious themes of rational beings that force us to reconsider our assumptions on Christ's sacrifice. But whether we are religious or not, this controversial novel will certainly be ideal to spark bright debates pertaining to the religious themes and the sci-fi genre.
