In the first book of C.S. Lewis's legendary science fiction trilogy, Dr. Ransom is kidnapped and spirited by spaceship to the mysterious red planet of Malandra. He escapes and goes on the run, jeopardizing both his chances of ever returning to Earth and his very life. First published in 1943, this classic interplanetary fantasy continues to delight readers around the world. Written during the dark hours immediately before and during the Second World War, C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, of which Out of the Silent Planet is the first volume, stands alongside such works as Albert Camus's The Plague and George Orwell's 1984 as a timely parable that has become timeless, beloved by succeeding generations as much for the sheer wonder of its storytelling as for the significance of the moral concerns. For the trilogy's central figure, C.S. Lewis created perhaps the most memorable character of his career, the brilliant, clear-eyed, and fiercely brave philologist Dr. Elwin Ransom. Appropriately, Lewis modeled Dr. Ransom after his dear friend J.R.R. Tolkien, for in the scope of its imaginative achievement and the totality of its vision of not one but two imaginary worlds, the Space Trilogy is rivaled in this century only by Tolkien's trilogy The Lord of the Rings. Readers who fall in love with Lewis's fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia as children, unfailingly cherish his Space Trilogy as adults; it, too, brings to life strange and magical realms in which epic battles are fought between the forces of light and those of darkness. But in the many layers of its allegory, and the sophistication and piercing brilliance of its insights into the human condition, it occupies a place among the English language's most extraordinary works for any age, and for all time. Out of the Silent Planet introduces Dr. Ransom and chronicles his abduction by a megalomaniacal physicist and his accomplice via space ship to the planet Malacandra. The two men are in need of a human sacrifice and Dr. Ransom would seem to fit the bill. Dr. Ransom escapes upon landing, though, and goes on the run, a stranger in a land that, like Jonathan Swift's Lilliput, is enchanting in its difference from Earth and instructive in its similarity.… (mehr)

Great world-building but rather slow, and being Lewis, there is some definite allegory. ( )
  bookwyrmm | Jan 11, 2021 |
I first read this back in the early 1980s, but in reading it again, I find that I have NO memory of the details. My "memories" of the first reading made me give it a five star rating, but upon this reading I can only come up with three and a half.

I was impatient with the descriptions of the planet; I couldn't see them in my mind, and what I did see was not appealing to me. Also there seemed to be a lot of pontificating. I did enjoy the interactions between Ransom & denizens of Malacandra. Rather an abrupt ending; did C.S. Lewis have a deadline?

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys the early scifi, although the science of it is less a focus than the moral implications of the theory that humankind can conquer all and has the right to. ( )

Rereading this was a treat. Such deep, subtly complex sci-fi coupled with a slim cast of characters and no focus on tech is rare to come by these days. Refreshing. ( )
  vanslykevin | Dec 12, 2020 |
This was a strange and interesting little book. Lewis touches on issues of language and understanding. He is (very) gently critical of colonialism and religious proselytism, but I bet it was probably a very liberal view for his day. Worth the read. ( )
