Out of the Silent Planet - C.S. Lewis I know that I read this a decade ago during my fundamentalist period, but I remember nothing about it. I'm interested to see if it holds up as a good book (like the Narnia ones did) or was another I read simply because I didn't read any secular fiction and didn't therefore have that many options. Am I the only one that found the last chapter completely annoying? Was it written after the book was originally published? Was it a response to an editor's criticisms? It read like the author was too lazy to go in and fix the inconsistencies, so instead tacked on a chapter explaining everything away....i.e this is a book written to the public to explain these fantastical happenings, but we forgot to mention this and this, so therefore that and that all make sense. Originally read sometime around 2000-2001
