The second book of Lewis's sci-fi trilogy, this is a sharp, sophisticated fantasy that deals with an old problem, temptation, in a new world, Perelandra. "Mr Lewis has a genius for making his fantasies livable".-The New York Times. Written during the dark hours immediately before and during the Second World War, C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy, of which Perelandra is the second 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. In Perelandra, Dr. Ransom is recruited by the denizens of Malacandra, befriended in Out of the Silent Planet, to rescue the edenic planet Perelandra and its peace-loving populace from a terrible threat: a malevolent being from another world who strives to create a new world order, and who must destroy an old and beautiful civilization to do so.… (mehr)

I first read this book in 2011 and enjoyed it then. I found it more meaningful the second time around, now that I am older, in the Perelandran sense. ( )

I enjoyed this one more than Out of the Silent Planet. Maybe because I'd already read OotSP, the world was more instantly enjoyable and understandable. Waiting for That Hideous Strength with the expectation I would expect from a C S Lewis title.

This was tougher to read than it should've been. I read it at least once before, in high school, but I don't recall it being quite so...uninteresting, for lack of a better term.

There are some moments of worth. Lewis has a knack for description, and his portrayal of Ransom's perusal of Perelandra is well done. Also, portions of dialogue between the various characters are quite well done.

However, Lewis seems to take things to the extreme. His description and dialogue become tedious at times, and his narrative devolves into tiresome reports of concepts that perhaps could be described more succinctly and clearly. ( )

Like the first book of this trilogy, re-reading Perelandra was time well-spent. As I vaguely remember the first time round, the last few chapters are a literary triumph worth much poring. ( )

This was an interesting take on the Eden/fall of humankind story, but there's some homecooked misogyny in there to remind us how very little Lewis understood women. Fun! ( )

As I left the railway station at Worchester and set out on the three-mile walk to Ransom's cottage, I reflected that no one on that platform could possibly guess the truth about the man I was going to visit.
