Good Adventure Story,
This review is from: Out of the Silent Planet (Scribner Classics) (Hardcover)
First published in 1938 and regarded as a classic this is the first part of a trilogy. Owing a certain amount to H.G. Wells this first book is about a voyage to another planet, Mallacandra, which is what the 'natives' call their planet. For the most part this is an adventure which could be considered fantasy or science fiction. The category on the back is fiction/literature (ooh, literature! - I must be well read now!).
As you probably know, Lewis's books were usually allegories of christian beliefs. I found this didn't really get in the way of a good adventure story and probably enhanced it...
