Review

‘An extravagant mingling of dream and realism… excellent and thrilling reading’ Daily Telegraph

From the Back Cover

The thrilling conclusion to C. S. Lewis's acclaimed Cosmic Trilogy, That Hideous Strength brings the battle between good and eveil to Earth in the tale of a terrifying conspiracy against humanity
Mark and Jane Studdock are a newly married couple about to be drawn into events very far out f the ordinary. The morning after a horrific nightmare about a decapitated head, Jane sees the same face in a newspaper – a brilliant French scientist guillotined for poisoning his wife. Jane has the growing feeling that she is being warned of something real and sinister. Mark, a Sociologist, has meanwhile been enticed to join the National Institute for Co-ordinated Experiments, which aims to harness human society. As he is drawn further into the sinister organisation, he discovers the truth of his wife's dreams, while she seeks help at a community called St Anne's, lead by the charismatic Dr Ransom.

This richly-imagined work combines C. S. Lewis's consumate storytelling with an exploration of some of his deepest concerns: the rise of scientific 'humanism' (as personified by H. G. Wells) and the growing thread to the ecology of the planet. But the tale is threaded with brightness and optimism as the memorably complex characters travel a painful but ultimately rewarding path towards self-knowledge.
