it was amazing

Out of the Silent Planet begins this trilogy with a bang as less than savory characters attempt to bind a planet to their own wills but encounter resistance from our hero Dr. Ransom. Perelandra continues the story as Ransom is sent by higher powers to stop an ancient enemy from corrupting a brand new world. That Hideous Strength paints an intricate picture of power and knowledge gone wild right here on our own planet in the not-so-distant past. In all of these books, the characters draw the reader in so close that the more fantastic features of the story begin to feel not at all foreign but completely reasonable. While the experience is certainly enhanced by having read these books all together, they are all more than capable of standing on their own.
