Rated 5 out of 5 by from Triolgy Great quality book. The stories are delightful. After reading the first book and a half in the trilogy I went and bought this to finish it off and it's a great addition to my shelves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best in the Series Excellent Excellent Excellent. I'm pretty much done the series and all of them are awesome but this one is my favorite looking back. The place your taken, the characters you meet, and the parallels to theology are all amazing. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical C.S. Lewis .... Genius This book has to be my all time favorite. If you know your theology, this vivid story is one big commentary without ever sounding like it's forced. Truly thought provoking and truly genius. If you don't know theology, this book still has a good story line, but it won't have the same impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That Hideous Strength Best C S Lewis sci fi novel and still relevant today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Space Trilogy An excellent tale of interplanetary intrigue where supernatural forces conspire against humanity and others seek his deliverance... to restore broken man into the sweetness and sweep of the Great Dance. In which struggle, seemingly by accident, a certain doctor of language, Elwin Ransome, becomes keystone in the structure of that battle. CS Lewis gives us the full spectrum of the intent, motive and origin of his character's thought processes. He leads to the logical conclusion and disasterous results of the "merely human" agenda.
