The final book in C.S. Lewis's acclaimed Space Trilogy, which includes Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra, That Hideous Strength concludes the adventures of the matchless Dr. Ransom. The dark forces that were repulsed in Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra are massed for an assault on the planet Earth itself. Word is on the wind that the mighty wizard Merlin has come back to the land of the living after many centuries, holding the key to ultimate power for that force which can find him and bend him to its will. A sinister technocratic organization is gaining power throughout Europe with a plan to "recondition" society, and it is up to Ransom and his friends to squelch this threat by applying age-old wisdom to a new universe dominated by science. The two groups struggle to a climactic resolution that brings the Space Trilogy to a magnificent, crashing close.… (mer)

I think this may be a new favorite. It felt like a deeper, more thoughtful, longer version of [b:The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare|184419|The Man Who Was Thursday A Nightmare|G.K. Chesterton|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1403181403s/184419.jpg|195447].

I read a review by a favorite writer, Connie Willis, that deemed this novel anti-feminist. I actually think it is one of C. S. Lewis's most feminist books. After all it is Jane who has the special gift, Jane who doesn't succumb to N.I.C.E., and Jane is writing a thesis. His goal isn't for her to be barefoot in the kitchen. And, for all the Director's talk about marriage, he really doesn't stick to his guns after the big event anyway. Most of his other books seem to ignore women altogether, or it is a woman vs. woman thing like [b:Till We Have Faces|17343|Till We Have Faces|C.S. Lewis|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1381692105s/17343.jpg|2072983].

Along with my enjoyment of Lewis's exploration of Jane's character, I loved his accurate portrayal of University PhD's at the beginning. My professors would talk similarly about their colleagues (never mentioning names, of course).

I also loved the old, but relevant, comments on "Fake News." Very timely. :)

Finally, it was absolutely brilliant. I will be digesting this book for years and will probably need another couple of reads to really get it. There's so much to think and talk about and write about. Definitely one of his best in my opinion. Read it and tell me what you think.

Wonderful book. It's bound to annoy the politically correct crowd, though - the members of the NICE at Belbury, for example. (If you read the book you'll see what I mean.) Read "The Abolition of Man" for a thorough explanation of Lewis's philosophy here. It also helps to know the Bible and the myths and legends of King Arthur. There is also a nod to Tolkien's writings.

A Trilogia Cósmica criada por Lewis é o resultado de uma aposta entre o autor e o seu grande amigo J.R.R. Tolkien. Segundo relatos, a escolha dos temas foi decidida através do cara ou coroa. Lewis ficou com a viagem no espaço, e Tolkien com a viagem no tempo. Tolkien acabou por não cumprir a aposta, enquanto Lewis não parou até terminar a trilogia.
A famosa amizade entre os dois autores ficou eternizada pela criação do personagem principal, Elwin Ransom, professor e filólogo, como Tolkien. Nestas aventuras do Dr. Ransom pelo espaço encontramos criaturas mágicas, um mundo de encantos, batalhas épicas e revelações de verdades transcendentes

A well written book with great Christians messages. I love how Lewis merge history, mythology and Christianity. Even though I didn't thought it was as good and philosophically deep as I remembered from when I first read it I still think it is well spend time. (One cause to why I didn't thought is as deep could be that I listened to it and didn't read it myself). ( )
