's review

it was ok
bookshelves: sci-fi, christianity

Book two in Lewis' Space Trilogy, and I'm afraid things have gone a bit downhill. The imaginative description of the planet Venus is diverting, but I just didn't find the plot extremely interesting. It read, again, like a Medieval doctrinal treatise on the Fall. And the extended epiphany at the end I just found boring. There was far too much attempted description of things that the author lamented could not be described.
