Don't miss the second title in the Space Trilogy - Perelandra       The third and final novel - That Hideous Strength 

The first book in C.S. Lewis' celebrated Space Trilogy.

While on a walking tour through England, Dr. Elwin Ransom becomes an unwilling guest at the home of Dr. Weston, a physicist. Weston and his colleague Dr. Devine kidnap Ransom and take him to the planet Malacandra. Ransom believes that he is meant to be handed over to the inhabitants of Malacandra as a human sacrifice.

Escaping but alone on an alien world, Ransom discovers that he has no survival skills that apply to his surroundings. Barely able to tell the difference between animals and plants or plants and rocks, he is unsure what to trust as safeeven his sanity begins to dissolve. Driven by curiosity, he establishes contact with what appears to be a friendly seal-like animal. The creature gives him food and drink and takes him to its village. 

Ransom settles into a peaceful life with these beings, the hrossa, and slowly finds his ideas about life, religion, divine providence, and humanity stretched to new horizons.

    Not as in depth as I hoped

    Posted by Christine S. on 16th Mar 2016

    The information in the study guide was good, but it was not as in depth as other study guides that I had purchased for high school level.
