Less plot-driven than Out of the Silent Planet. Lewis is perhaps too didactic and self-conscious with his imagery. Yet, it is worth reading and thinking about. ( )

Starting from her early life, this book takes us through the remarkable life of Sojourner Truth. Born into slavery, she eventually because a free woman, and a powerful speaker against the injustice of that practice.

This is an excellent biography. It does not glorify Truth, nor does it humilate her. It shows the complete woman - brilliant, flawed, strong, frail, and willful. Good biographies do not white-wash their subjects, and this is a good biography. Worth reading. ( )

This is one of my favorite books of all time!! I read it over & over periodically. I love the theology incorporated into the story, especially in the "conversation" between Tor & Tinidril, Malacandra & Perelandra, & Ransom at the very end. I also love the descriptions of the scenery on Venus, so poetic. ( )

Summary: Our main character, Ransom, travels to a different planet which is at the beginning of its time. He meets the first woman of the planet who is innocent and pure. A man from Earth also comes and is very evil and tries to ruin their world by convincing the woman to break God's one command to them.

As I left the railway station at Worchester and set out on the three-mile walk to Ransom's cottage, I reflected that no one on that platform could possibly guess the truth about the man I was going to visit.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 074323491X, Paperback)

The second book in C. S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which also includes Out of the Silent Planet and That Hideous Strength, Perelandra continues the adventures of the extraordinary Dr. Ransom. Pitted against the most destructive of human weaknesses, temptation, the great man must battle evil on a new planet -- Perelandra -- when it is invaded by a dark force. Will Perelandra succumb to this malevolent being, who strives to create a new world order and who must destroy an old and beautiful civilization to do so? Or will it throw off the yoke of corruption and achieve a spiritual perfection as yet unknown to man? The outcome of Dr. Ransom's mighty struggle alone will determine the fate of this peace-loving planet.
