Description
The first book in C. S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which continues with Perelandra and That Hideous Strength, Out of the Silent Planet begins the adventures of the remarkable Dr. Ransom. Here, that estimable man is abducted by a megalomaniacal physicist and his accomplice and taken via spaceship to the red planet of Malacandra. The two men are in need of a human sacrifice, and Dr. Ransom would seem to fit the bill. Once on the planet, however, Ransom eludes his captors, risking his life and his chances of returning to Earth, becoming a stranger in a land that is enchanting in its difference from Earth and instructive in its similarity. First published in 1943, Out of the Silent Planet remains a mysterious and suspenseful tour de force.

display_descriptionIn "Out of the Silent Planet", the first book of C.S. Lewis' celebrated Space Trilogy, two men, Devine and Weston, capture a third, Ransom, and take him to the planet of Malacandra via a space craft. When Ransom learns that the men plan to sacrifice him to the strange planet's inhabitants, he escapes on foot. Lewis' descriptions of the otherworldly land of Malacandra are captivating, as well as his descriptions of Ransom's learning of the native language of the Hrossa and Sorns, the inhabitants of Malacandra. Ransom comes to realize that these beings have far different plans for him than he ever could have guessed.
