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.… (lisätietoja)

Edit 20/10/2020: According to wiki there's a note at the start i never read "Certain slighting references to earlier stories of this type which will be found in the following pages have been put there for purely dramatic purposes. The author would be sorry if any reader supposed he was too stupid to have enjoyed Mr. H. G. Wells's fantasies or too ungrateful to acknowledge his debt to them." end of edit.

So this is Lewis's knockoff and attack on H.G. Wells novel '[b:The First Men in the Moon|536478|The First Men in the Moon|H.G. Wells|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1311647668l/536478._SY75_.jpg|2401415]'. Its also basically Narnia in space but with even less happening. A sort of dry utopian story with religious allegory. I could have easily given it 2 stars but wanted to differentiate it from some even worse books like [b:A Journey in Other Worlds |1132373|A Journey in Other Worlds A Romance of the Future|John Jacob Astor|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1328820922l/1132373._SY75_.jpg|1119586].

Most of the fun comes from comparing it to First Men in the Moon so i;m not sure how much those who havn't read that book will get. For example, 'First Men' has two protagonists, the scientist and the business man, this book portrays them both as monsters and adds a third character the religious philologist as our hero , wow subtle :P . It also does the rather pointless postscript which 'First Men' also used (although the latter doesn't call it a postscript but it certainly feels like one) .

I'm not sure what the main idea was that this book was trying to convey perhaps it was that the human race deserves to die out, or that people should stay where god put them, or that the universe is doomed anyway so why bother trying to stay alive, or that this life is a dud but theres an afterlife so we might aswell all kill ourselves, all of which seem pretty stupid ideas. On the other hand if the whole thing is an indictment of colonialism then it works quite well :D .

There is some good stuff here i especially like a view on how something you experience is built into you for the rest of your life, although that also seemed like a allegory Lewis could use to avoid having sex with his wife again ;) .

Short and not badly written, although it certainly feels like it ripped off the writing style of Wells not just the plot, very 1890's rather than 1930's.

Edit: Changed it to 2 stars, it may not be worthless but reading it is still pretty pointless. ( )

Oh dear.
Unlike many other readers, I loved the descriptions of Malacandra’s flora and fauna. They’re weird and wonderful. I also liked the interaction between Ransom and the Malacandrans.
But…heavy-handed allegory and lots of preaching can get tedious. It’s really too bad that Lewis and E. R. Burroughs couldn’t have collaborated on books about Mars: Lewis for the writing and Burroughs for the exciting plotting. ( )
  bohemima | Nov 22, 2021 |
A British academic on a walking tour of the countryside (can you tell you're in a CS Lewis novel yet?) gets abducted by two other British academic types and taken in their spaceship (yeah, you read that right) to what turns out to be Mars because they think the Martians want a human sacrifice so that they (the British (and apparently evil) academic types) want the Martian gold. Walking Tour Brit escapes the Evil Brits and essentially carries on with his walking tour, just now on another planet. Then things get philosophical and somewhere in there he (Lewis) posits that angels are maybe actually see-through aliens.
So yeah, it's a bit of a wild ride, and Lewis's ideas about what space is really like are honest-to-goodness hilarious, but overall I think the best description I can come up with is that it's a clunky predecessor to Mary Doria Russell's *much* more sophisticated and eloquently written The Sparrow. So, read this one for a laugh and go to Russell for the better, meatier stuff. ( )

C. S. Lewis is a genius! That being said, there was very little humor in this book. The snide sarcasm of Screwtape- which is probably the only other adult fiction of his that I have read, gave it a lighter feeling. This was deep! ( )
  OutOfTheBestBooks | Sep 24, 2021 |
"When you and I met, the meeting was over very shortly, it was nothing. Now it is growing something as we remember it, what will it be when I remember it as I lie down to die, what it makes in me all my days till then - that is the real meeting. The other is only the beginning of it. You say you have poets in your world. Do they not teach you this?"
