  • S.Lewis' Space Trilogy, is my favorite of the 3

      Perelandra, Book 2 of C. S. Lewis’ Space Trilogy, is my favorite of the 3.

      Dr. Ransom we’ve met in the first book and followed on his trip to Mars has another space-traveling adventure.

      This time he goes to Venus, also known as Perelandra. Venus turns out to be an ocean with a few floating islands.

      It is inhabited by very friendly animals who

      seem eager to please Dr. Ransom.

      Then he meets a human - a woman with green skin. They begin to talk, and after some confusion Ransom realizes that he is speaking to the Eve of Venus, the first woman ever created on this yet unfallen planet.

      Her husband is presently away, and satan is trying to use it to make Eve disobey ...

      • God and break one of the rules He had established. Satan comes in the body of Professor Weston, one of the two villains from Book 1 who had kidnapped Dr.

        Ransom. Dr.

        Ransom understands that he is here to prevent the fall of Venus. I absolutely love Lewis’s portrayal of the unfallen world.

        His descriptions are breathtaking and vivid. You will feel

        like you’ve been on the floating island after reading this book.

        Even if the adventure was limited just to that, it would have been a remarkable story. Of course, the spiritual struggle that occurs adds a whole new dimension to it.

        Some episodes are rather unpleasant to read (satan-Weston torturing a bird just because he hates God’s creation), but they serve their purpose.

    • Don't Be Nice. Be Helpful.
