Default THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH (Lewis)

Greetings everybody,

How many of y'all have read this CS Lewis book? (The final volume in the Space Trilogy)

What are your takes on it?

For those of you who do not live in England, did you find the mythological content difficult to wrap your minds around?

God Bless and ICXC NIKA.

Default Re: THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH (Lewis)

Hello,

Read it recently, maybe two or more years ago.
I would say it brought all the elements of confusion together from the lfirst two books.
Out of the three I believe I enjoyed this one more.
But you asked about the mythological content. Well it was a bit strange with Merlin in there, and then something to do with Camelot, right? And the head, Weston, and Ransom. But I found it very different from the other because it did answer some questions. It took place on Earth. Different characters by far. And Light conquered Darkness in the end obviously.
