This review is from: That Hideous Strength (Voyager) (Paperback)
I turn to this novel again and again. Lewis put everything he loved into it -- references to J R R Tolkien's mythology, allusions to the theories of Owen Barfield and the poetry of Charles Williams; love of British countryside and weather; economic insights that have won praise from Wendell Berry - - many more examples could be given.
And it's a thrilling story, with psychic dreams, an Orwellian science fiction theme, and a satisfactorily Jacobean climax.
