4.0 out of 5 stars Faithful version of an old classic
I was pleased to find this was the complete text and not the abridged paperback, and that it had Tolkien's introduction. The scan was almost 100% accurate, with only one or two errors that could have been picked up by careful proof-reading.
I have not read these stories for almost 20 years, and was surprised to find the first and third as gripping as I remembered;...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi and religion intersperced
I wouldn't know how to categorise this trilogy whether as sci-fi or theological treatise. The intrusion of the latter element for me spoiled the former. The religious element is more evident as the trilogy develops and I found myself skipping large chunks of the text to omit this element.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sci-fi series, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Space Trilogy (Kindle Edition)
Coming back to re-read this series after a few years, it's as good now as it ever was. My favourite book of the 3 is the third, 'That Hideous Strength,' though plenty of people would disagree and claim that honour for the second, 'Perelandra.'

It's still astonishing that the writer of the Narnia books and several theological works could so successfully turn his hand to sci-fi. Philosophical and theological themes still underpin the books, but these add to the complexity of the ideas being explored.

Great stuff.

This trilogy is the first books I read of C S Lewis and I think they are FAR SUPERIOR to the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe

This review is from: The Space Trilogy (Hardcover)
I wouldn't know how to categorise this trilogy whether as sci-fi or theological treatise. The intrusion of the latter element for me spoiled the former. The religious element is more evident as the trilogy develops and I found myself skipping large chunks of the text to omit this element. The trilogy is fine if you like this type of thing, if not stick to HG Wells, Ray Bradbury, Asimov or Clarke who have more expertise at this Genre.
