I recently read C.S. Lewis’s “Out of the Silent Planet”. It’s the first of his space trilogy.
I enjoyed it. It was not, however, exactly like I was expecting. It was exactly like I should have expected, but I didn’t actually quite believe it. You see, people had told me it was “C.S. Lewis writes a sci-fi story”. And it really is. But just like when people told me Firefly was a space western, I didn’t actually expect the cows, I didn’t expect “Out of the Silent Planet” to actually really so closely follow the ideals of sci-fi story-telling.
It was fun.
