Item Description...
Dr. Ransom enters the increasingly pressing conflict between science and ethics and embarks on a mysterious journey.

Publishers Description
The final book in C. S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which includes "Out of the Silent Planet" and "Perelandra, That Hideous Strength" concludes the adventures of the matchless Dr. Ransom. The dark forces that were repulsed in "Out of the Silent Planet" and "Perelandra" are massed for an assault on the planet Earth itself. Word is on the wind that the mighty wizard Merlin has come back to the land of the living after many centuries, holding the key to ultimate power for that force which can find him and bend him to its will. A sinister technocratic organization is gaining power throughout Europe with a plan to "recondition" society, and it is up to Ransom and his friends to squelch this threat by applying age-old wisdom to a new universe dominated by science. The two groups struggle to a climactic resolution that brings the Space Trilogy to a magnificent, crashing close.

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!
Appreciated This One :)  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. Once I realized what it was truly about, it became much easier to wade through the diversions that are set up with too much going on about minute details and the thoughts of the characters. More action would have pleased me but I guess I am just accustomed to the masters of those kinds of books.

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.

I enjoyed this last book in the series more than the first two.
Horror, myth, but little more  Mar 12, 2007
To be fair, I only rate Lewis' conclusion of his trilogy a 3 in relation to the other two volumes. The first was excellent and profound. The second, Christian allegory much less exciting than the Bible or history. Here, almost second-rate fantasy. Maybe Lewis was expressing strongly-held beliefs. I'm sure that his true students must know a lot about what he thought in 1946--more than I do.

It was certainly a horrible time to look backward into the then-recent past. Even as good a writer as Lewis could hardly do justice to the real-death story of Hitler's attack on the world, and what it took to fight him (murderous Stalin as ally, two nuclear bombs, and then welcoming German scientists to build the military space program against the heirs of that ally).

Yes, That Hideous Strength is imaginative fantasy, well written in parts, and with a few interesting points about the nasty illusions we prop up to keep our world going as-is. But earthshaking? Unfortunately, not anymore.
Great trilogy!  Jan 17, 2007
Lewis is a phenomenal writer and I love this trilogy. It should have as much of a following as The Narnia books.
Excellent Book  Sep 12, 2006
This is the third and final book in C.S. Lewis's amazing Space Trilogy. This book was written as a sequel to the immensely popular Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra but Lewis also wrote it so that the story can stand on its own. So if you haven't read the first, you can start here.

That Hideous Strength, unlike the first 2 books in this series, where Ransom leaves earth and fights evil in space and on other planets, the battle in this book takes place on earth.

Ransom must lead a group of faithful believers against National Institute for Coordinated Experiments or N.I.C.E., an organization that believes that Science can solve all of humanity's problems. He must battle the people in this organization, super aliens trying to invade and control earth and use its population against other planets and against God.

On top of all of that, Merlin has arisen from his long sleep and has arisen in England's time of greatest need. But the question is, who will find him first - N.I.C.E. or Ransom and his team? The fate of the world, and possibly the universe, rests on this question.

Lewis called this story an adult's fairy-tale. It is a mix of sci-fi and fantasy, and a book that will keep your attention as you raptly turn the pages to find out where Lewis will lead you.
