Review

“This book has real splendour, compelling moments and a flowing narrative.” New York Times

“An extravagant mingling of dream and realism…excellent and thrilling reading.” Daily Telegraph

“Remarkable… a rare power of inventive imagination” Times Literary Supplement

Synopsis

This striking box-set contains Lewis's classic sci-fi trilogy dealing with the adventures of Dr Ransom. Told with a wealth of imagination and sense of adventure, all three tales incisively draw out the realities of good and evil, God and the devil from the fantasy. The Cosmic Trilogy is a remarkable work of fantasy, demonstrating yet again the powerful imagination of C.S Lewis. OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET Dr Ransom, a Cambridge academic is kidnapped and transported to another planet, Malacandra (Mars). His captors are plotting to plunder the planet's treasures and plan to offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the rational creatures they have found there. Through the Malacandrans, spiritual truths concerning the Earth are uncovered. PERELANDRA On Perelandra (Venus), Dr Ransom finds himself battling to preserve a second Eden from the evil forces present in the possessed body of his enemy Dr Weston. THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH Back on Earth Jane Struddock is disturbed by prophetic nightmares while her husband, Mark, is drawn into the National Institute for Co-ordinated Experiments which is engaged in a plan to recreate mankind in the image of slave robots.

These are thrilling stories with a spiritual message. Through the fantasy of other worlds, Lewis explores the issues of good and evil, God and the devil and ponders the future of the human race.
