That Hideous Strength

Shannon (my wife) and I have been reading CS Lewis’ Sci-Fi trilogy in the last few weeks together.

All I can say right now is wow. Lewis did an amazing job with this trilogy, I don’t know why it isn’t as popular as much of his other work. It may be because the first two can be a little difficult to read, but other than that it is a really good job.

One of the best themes he has developed through the series has been one of obedience. We’ve got about three chapters left of the last book and then I’m going to post a review of sorts here at this blog.

The three books in the series are:

1. Out of the Silent Planet
2. Perelandra (Voyage to Venus)
3. That Hideous Strength

Wikipedia has an entry on the trilogy here
