The Space Trilogy is perhaps CS Lewis’ least known stories. The Silent Planet is the first book and is about Dr E Ransom who, while on a walking holiday and looking for a place to stay, stumbles upon a large house, is kidnapped and taken to an alien planet. Ransom escapes from his captives and roams across this new planet meeting strange creatures and then meeting the spiritual guardian (angel) of the planet. This leads to the adventure of the rest of the books.
This is an extremely creative, fun and enjoyable book. Highly recommended.
