From the 1940's, a Prophecy of today

C.S. Lewis demonstrates an uncanny and prescient
look into the 21st first century with this unique novel.
It is one of my all time favorites! Every time I read it I understand something new. Although Lewis was already seeing the dangers of progressivism in the 1940's we are having a fresh look at its sinister implications today.
This is the third tome of Lewis' Science Fiction Trilogy but can be read alone. If one is willing to read all three books, (not long at all),
one will be rewarded with deeper insights !
Unparalleled enjoyment in fiction !
