Review

Review:

There was no sound of pursuit. Ransom dropped down on his stomach and drank, cursing a world where cold water appeared to be unobtainable. Then he lay still to listen and to recover his breath. His eyes were upon the blue water. It was agitated. Circles shuddered and bubbles heaved and a round, shining, black thing like a cannon-ball came into sight. Then he saw eyes and mouth – puffing mouth bearded with bubbles. More of the thing came up out of the water. It was gleaming and black… Ransom lay perfectly still, pressing his body as well down into the weed as he could, in obedience to a wholly theoretical ideas that he might thus pass unobserved.

In the first novel of C.S. Lewis's classic sci-fi trilogy, Dr Ransom, a Cambridge academic, is kidnapped and transported to another planet. His captors are plotting to plunder the planet's treasure, and plan to offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the rational creatures they have found there. Ransom discovers he has come from the only 'silent planet' and the tragic story of Earth is known throughout the universe…
