Publishers Description
The second book in C. S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which also includes "Out of the Silent Planet" and "That Hideous Strength," "Perelandra" continues the adventures of the extraordinary Dr. Ransom. Pitted against the most destructive of human weaknesses, temptation, the great man must battle evil on a new planet -- Perelandra -- when it is invaded by a dark force. Will Perelandra succumb to this malevolent being, who strives to create a new world order and who must destroy an old and beautiful civilization to do so? Or will it throw off the yoke of corruption and achieve a spiritual perfection as yet unknown to man? The outcome of Dr. Ransom's mighty struggle alone will determine the fate of this peace-loving planet.

A Master!  Jul 12, 2007
This was a wonderful classic that I discovered! It can be read by adults and older kids (teens). C.S. Lewis is a master!
A Philosophical Discussion within an Adventure  Jul 4, 2007
Perelandra, published in 1943 is the second work of a trilogy by the father of Christian Science Fiction, C. S. Lewis. The first story in the trilogy, Out of the Silent Planet, was published in 1938, and the set concludes with That Hideous Strength, released in 1945.

Lewis is the author of many novels including, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and the other Narnia stories as well as non-fiction works including Mere Christianity, The Abolition of Man and A Grief Observed. Lewis was a close friend of J. R. R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings. Both were professors at Oxford University and members of an informal literary group called The Inklings.

The science part of the story is largely dated. In this book Lewis largely avoids the issue of space flight having the protagonist, Elwin Ransom, unconscious during the trip to Venus. In the novel Venus is ocean paradise not the dry hellish world we now know it to be. The writing style is also somewhat dated, being told in narrative and containing much more introspection, exposition, and character discussion than is done in modern literature. In all of his fiction works Lewis uses allegory to teach Christianity.

In the story Elwin Ransom, the protagonist, is sent by Oyarsa, the angel who governs Mars, to Perelandra, the planet we know as Venus. While the first book, Out of the Silent Planet, was an adventure story with allegory, Perelandra is more of a philosophical discussion within an adventure. The story is an examination of the fall of man and, in part, Lewis' answer to the John Milton's Paradise Lost and parallels to Dante's journey in The Divine Comedy.

I rate this book four-star only in the context of Lewis' overall excellent writing. This story is less of an adventure, a slower pace and much more allegory.

Recommendation: Christians interested in science fiction should read all three works of this trilogy both for edification and entertainment. They remain, overall, five-star stories.

Book Two Cries Out for Book Three  Jun 10, 2007
This is a fascinating book and story that must be read all the way through book three in the series to be truly understood. One needs to remember that it was written so long ago that the prose is, to me, cumbersome and Lewis goes on and on about things philosophizing at great length about the smallest issue. I felt I had to stick with it in spite of this because by the time I began to see this, I had already invested too much time in the reading of it.
Best of the Space Trilogy  Jun 3, 2007
This is an excelent book, and can be equally enjoyed alone or as part of the trilogy. Lewis addresses profound theological topics (free will, redemption, an omnipotent God coexisting with a sinful creation) with an artful style of storytelling, full of imagination and awe. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to deepen their experience of God.
A Remarkable Mind  May 20, 2007
C.S. Lewis richly deserves a place with the top ten authors of the Twentieth Century. He has proven himself to be a virtuoso with the English language and a master story teller encompassing many literary forms from narrative to prose to fantasy. He wrote effectively to adults as well as children.
I came late to the space trilogy, having read his other works for several years. A friend pulled the collection from his bookshelf and I was surprised that I hadn't heard of them. I have now read them ten or more times and still find each one fascinating, especially Perelandra.
Lewis' stunning description of this paradise fills the mind with colors and textures, sights and sounds. One feels washed and cleansed by the beauty and purity of a world we can only hope for.
The running dialogue between the three main characters is a masterpiece of Christian Philosophy and a must-read for the serious Bible student.
I will continue to enjoy all of Lewis' writings for the remainder of my journey, especially Perelandra, and I look forward to meeting him when I arrive at my destination.
