Reading The Surprising Imagination of C.S. Lewis will give the reader a new level of understanding of the different topics Lewis wrote about. It will open the mind of the reader and give them a deeper appreciation of Lewis’s writing style. As a fan of Lewis, I felt Jerry Root and Mark Neal gave me a treasure by exposing the gems Lewis inserted into his stories and letters.
Science Fiction isn’t a genre I am familiar with – except for Star Trek. I am not a reader of SciFi unless it is Star Trek related, so reading this novel was a difference experience for me. When reading a fiction, mystery, or suspense, all these genres have something in common; they are about our world and describe objects I am familiar with. Not so with Out of the Silent Planet.
