Very Thought Provoking Christian Science Fiction 16 août 2000
Par Glenn Maddox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When C.S. Lewis wrote fiction, he created a world and then asked, "How would God choose to be revealed in this world?" The way Lewis reveals God in these stories is amazing. The first book in the trilogy will probably have the most familiar feel to an avid science fiction reader. The second will probably be the most appealing to the fantasy lover and those who are reading these books because they loved the Chronicles of Narnia. The third will probably appeal most to those who like Lewis' non-fiction works and works such as "The Pilgrim's Regress." The trilogy as a whole offers something for everyone who is a fan of Lewis' works, or any lover of science fiction/fantasy that enjoys thinking about theology and ethics while reading fiction. I've read that when Lewis died he had been working on a fourth edition of the Space Trilogy, but the trilogy is certainly complete and a great experience as is.

The battle of good and evil--CS Lewis style 1 novembre 2002
Par bixodoido - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Space Trilogy is CS Lewis's allegorical statement of theology and philosophy. Lewis was one of the most prominent Christian apologists of his time, but he always felt there was an audience he couldn't reach. This was his solution, and we are left with a masterpiece both in the world of fiction and the world of theology.
The hero of the books is Dr. Ransom, a philologist who is a good man, though not exceptionally heroic at first. The first book finds him captured and whisked off to Mars, where he encounters a society much more morally advanced than our own, and learns that the corruption of our planet is due to an evil influence (which we would call Satan). These higher creatures cannot grasp the concepts of war, murder, or any vice.
The second book finds Ransom transported to Perelandra, also known as Venus. This is Lewis's allegory of the garden of Eden, and here he encounters an unfallen woman who is being tempted into doing the forbidden. Here Ransom learns of the nature of sin, and of the temptation that (Lewis says) befell the parents of our own race.
The final book is quite different from the other two, and Ransom, this time on Earth, is battling an evil organization which is bent on penetrating the mysteries of the universe and purifying the human race. Ransom and his followers are aided by a power that has long slept, and together they battle the power of science gone haywire. We see, through their eyes, the evils of society and of so-called 'higher thought.'
There are many lessons to be learned from this wonderful trilogy, but there is also a remarkable story to be told. If you're a fan of fantasy and science fiction, a reader of Christian and theological works, or both, you will greatly enjoy the Space Trilogy.

Battling between good and evil 7 janvier 2002
Par cdale8 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The theme throughout these three books is man's battle (or, rather, intelligent life's battle) between good and evil, with some very obvious, but not stifling, religious overtones also found in CS Lewis' nonfiction work. For adults who absolutely adored the Chronicles of Narnia set, this trilogy takes you through the battle between good and evil in a more sophisticated manner. Granted, these are not nearly as easy to read, but adapting to the more complex (sometimes slow-moving in Hideous Strength) writing style was quick.
If you are primarily interested in religious fiction, and have the patience to read books with more complexity than, say, the Left Behind series, you will like these allegorical journeys through the fall of man. If you are primarily interested in SciFi, CS Lewis takes you to other worlds (Silent Planet, Perelandra) and introduces beings from another Earth-time (Hideous Strength) with an original twist of the good vs. evil storyline.
All three books can be read on their own, however I found that "That Hideous Strength" would have been difficult to follow without the background provided in either "Out of the Silent Planet" or "Perelandra". Regardless of the individual readability of the 3 stories, I started with the 1st book (Out of the Silent Planet) not sure I would enjoy it, and ended up finishing all 3 within a week or two.

Very good read! 22 juillet 2003
Par Erik1988 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
STORY: Dr. Ransom is kidnapped by two other scientists and wisked away to the world of Malacandra. His wouldbe kidnappers think they are brining him to be a sacrafice to the beings of that planet. What happens is an adventure of discovery and facing the truth about human nature, which forever changes Ransom.
1) SETTING - C.S. Lewis just shines in his descriptions of new, exotic places and the beings that live there. His vivid details allow the reader to create a wonderful mental image of a world totally different from our own. Very, very nicely done.
2) CHARACTERS - The cast of characters consists of Dr. Ransom, Dr. Weston, Dr. Devine and the various beings found on Malacandra (sorns, hross, pfifltrigg and Oyarsa). Every character has a purpose and is allogoric of something greater, which is sometimes clearly demonstrated and at other times left to the reader to interpret. At no point was I bored or upset at stereotypes when reading about these characters. Even if you don't see the allogories they represent they are still intriguing and unpredictable.
3) STORY - I read somewhere that this story is a retelling of the Christ story from the Bible. I didn't see that. Yes, there were some similarities such as the Bent One could be Satan and his fall from heaven. Otherwise, just reading the first book I didn't feel like I was bring preached out or given a Bible Study of any type. It was an intriguing sci-fi story of discovery.
Also, like many secular sci-fi books written prior to 1950, this book makes clear commentary on human society. In other words if someone puts this book down because of the social commentary then that reader is unfamiliar with such literary trends as mentioned. I did prefer this author's handling of social commentary more than other authors of the time that I've read.
Lastly, the book is written very well. Many times I felt like I was reading poetry instead of a sci-fi novel. C.S. Lewis' professional handling of the written prose is very, very enjoyable and appreciated.
OVERALL - I can't think of anything wrong with this story. It had action, a mystery, suspense, discovery, aliens, space-flight, characters true to their nature, social commentary, allogory AND all this squeezed into less than 160 pages. In many ways this books ends with most of the story resolved so there doesn't seem to be an immediate need to read the rest of the trilogy. BUT...if you like this first book like I did then you'll find very little reason not to rush out and continue reading right away. A very enjoyable sci-fi read.

The triumph of the Eccentric Englishman 1 décembre 2000
Par S. Nowlan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The "Space Trilogy" by C. S. Lewis is a bit of a surprise for those whose only exposure to the author is through the delightful "Chronicles of Narnia." The Space Trilogy is fantasy for adults, but based on Lewis's own particular world-view as a committed academic and lay member of the Church of England (i.e. Anglican Church). The book shows its roots through plausible science-fiction mixed with a world-view that embraces the pivotal role of the spiritual world as an integral part of the natural universe.
To those who are suspicious that Lewis might be too much of an Evangelical Christian, I would answer that he is certainly has the world-view of a mid-20th century Anglican, but that his native imagination and intelligence embrace something much more universal than a particular religious time and place.
In the first trip (to Mars) or Thulcandra, for example, Lewis includes a sharp and insightful criticism of 19th and early 20th Century British Imperialism (and materialism) through the character of a professor who has kidnapped the hero (Ransom) in the mistaken belief that the "god" of Thulcandra demands a human sacrifice.
In the second book (Perelandra), Lewis explores the nature of temptation and morality through the idea of a "New Eden" on the planet Venus. At the end of the book, Lewis includes a rapturous passage that sounds as if it were written by a medieval mystic, in which the nature of the universe and God is explored in what is almost a hymn-like passage. Whenever I read this book, my imagination is stirred by the glorious descriptions of the imagined world of Perelandra.
In the third installment of the series (That Hideous Strength), Lewis brings us back to Earth and a modern morality myth, in which a man's desire to "belong" or "fit in" is used to gradually corrupt him and draw him into a modern evil organization. The man's wife is simultaneously brought into more sympathetic contact with a vividly-imagined group that has strong Arthurian and mythopeic elements. The contrast between the two groups - stultifying conformity mixed with totalitarism on one hand and common purpose married with eccentric individuality on the other - makes for an entertaining story in which Lewis's sympathies are never in doubt.
Spirituality, mythic forces, and good solid traditional English eccentricity mark the world created by Lewis. It is a world in which nature, poetry and the Medieval trump bland modern materialistic conformity. And this is all set in a well-crafted story and happens to well-drawn characters about whom we learn to care.
