In response to Anyone read C.S. Lewis's "Ransom" books?, written by Tay on August 10, 1998 at 20:20:51
] ] I've often heard and read that CS Lewis Books of Narnia are great. What are them about? How many are there? Which is the one to start with? :-)
] I think its a triology about a Dr.Ransom, and I've just gotten the first book. He gets kidnapped by rude scientists and runs away from them whilst on the planet. Geez, can't recall either the book's name or the planet's, but I do remember that its pretty interesting reading. I'm only mid-way through, but its not the only book I'm currently reading, so right now I can't recall the details.
] You'll forgive me :-)
I love that trilogy. CSLewis uses so much symbolism in his books.
The second book is published under two names, Voyage to Venus and Perelandra. After reading the whole trilogy the first book (Out of the Silent Planet) seemed more like an introduction.
