Out of the Silent Planet
Dr. Ransom, a Cambridge academic, is abducted and taken on a spaceship to the red planet of Malacandra, which he knows as Mars. His captors are plotting to plunder the planet's treasures and offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the creatures who live there.

Having escaped from Mars, Dr. Ransom is called to the paradise planet of Perelandra, or Venus. When his old enemy also arrives and is taken over by the forces of evil, Ransom finds himself in a desperate struggle to save the innocence of this Eden-like world.

That Hideous Strength
Investigating the truth about her prophetic dreams, Jane Studdock encounters the fabled Dr. Ransom, who is in great pain after his travels. A sinister society run by his old adversaries intends to harness the ancient powers of a resurrected Merlin in their ambition to subjugate the people of Earth.

    A remarkable reminder of the stark contrast within our species... illustrating selfless compassion and love in one example and deep perversion and arrogance in the next. A very entertaining read!
  • Horrific Misogynistic Drivel

    By BrucePHenry
    I encountered these books while reading every novel that won the Hugo (these were "retro-Hugo" recipients). The religious dogma and extreme, even for the time, sexism was honestly rage inducing. The sexist views and positions sink to the level of misogyny as the series progresses. Save your time and money and let these be relegated to the dustbin of history. These are not books to be lightly set aside, but rather thrown with great force.

    Loved the writing style and old word usage. Felt like I was back in that age.
