Out of the Silent Planet is an outstanding work of science fiction whose Christian elements and moral lessons are unmistakable. This work contains no blood-drenched pages or frightening images as does most of the science fiction genre of today. Instead, it is a rich work of literature that uses vivid imagination to illuminate what our world could be like and allows us to see the actions of men throughout history in an entirely fresh way. All of this is set in a story that balances action, suspense, and a clear-cut differentiation between right and wrong.
