Summary from Goodreads:

In the first novel of C.S. Lewis's classic science fiction trilogy, 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 plan to offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the creatures who live there. Ransom discovers he has come from the 'silent planet' – Earth – whose tragic story is known throughout the universe...


This was an interesting read from one of my favorite childhood fantasy authors. I loved the beginning, but lost interest a little toward the end. It was still worth the read and wonderful insight into what people of C.S. Lewis' time thought about space and the future. It was so plain.
