Not Sure What To Do With This Bit Of Info

I recommend C.S. Lewis’ sci-fi space trilogy, usually refered to by the name of the first book, “Out of the Silent Planet.” The three book series is not an easy read. It is different than anything else Lewis wrote. If you are not up for a three book sci-fi story or if you just want a taste, go for the third book, “That Hideous Strength.”
The first two books leave Earth. The concluding book brings the action back to Earth. Lewis wrote the trilogy before WW2. When you read it, you will think Lewis wrote it today. A warning: it’s not too bad, but Lewis gets graphic about some of the evil stuff. It' is definitely not for children. Amazon Link
