Twitterature– Out of the Silent Planet

on January 21, 2013


I recently discovered Modern Mrs. Darcy’s blog and fell in love. Truth to tell, I’m a wee bit jealous– she reads multiple books and blogs every week, writes regularly for not one but TWO blogs, works part time, and oh yes, mothers FOUR small children. I can only wish I had the kind of energy to fit all that in. *sigh*

This year she started a monthly reading link-up and I have finished ONE book so far this month! (Yay me! Every little helps, you know!) The reviews are styled after Twitter- short and informal, though she doesn’t hold you to just 140 characters. Visit her and get some reading ideas, then join up with your own reviews!

Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis

Narnia for adults. Part of the 3-book “Deep Heaven” or “Space” trilogy. Obvious Biblical allusions if you know your Bible, just a fascinating story with rich characters if you don’t.

    Love Modern Mrs. Darcy’s blogs…. but don’t feel bad, we all do not have the same talents! I’m so glad you decided to write a twitter review of your latest read- Lewis is great! Thanks for linking up with Cozy Book Hop Hope you join us again – even if you aren’t reading a book a week…

  2. Oh, I love this choice! I’ve been thinking for years now that I should re-read the Space Trilogy–I haven’t read those since college!

    Thanks for the kind words 🙂 And for joining in for Twitterature!

      You are so welcome! That’s when I read them too- in a whole CS Lewis sr level class. It was wonderful! But I have had 2 more children since then; it’s been about 26 years!

  3. […] She reviews several books each month, but here is my second in 6 months.  Whoo-hoo! (That’s okay. I live to be the poster child of doing the best I can and not being condemned by comparisons and perfectionism!) (Here’s my first.) […]
