Perelandra: a whole different sort of sci fi.
Worth Reading, Fiction Trilogy, Lewis Science, Book Worth, Ransom Voyage, Spaces Trilogy, Science Fiction, Perelandra Spaces, Dr. Ransom
Perelandra: (Space Trilogy, Book Two) (The Space Trilogy) by C. S. Lewis, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006L872Q0/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_RJEIsb1JQ3NXQ
The second novel in Lewis's science fiction trilogy tells of Dr Ransom's voyage to the planet of Perelandra (Venus).
While I do not as readily identify with the first and third books of Lewis' science fiction trilogy, I do adore the second installment. This book shows Lewis' love of taking Scriptural truths and applying them to utterly fictional scenarios, such as the beginning of life on Venus. What would Adam and Eve be like on another world--after the life and death of Jesus has already brought salvation to the universe? Image retrieved via http://c2rcc.files.wordpress.com

Night by Elie Wiesel
Night By Elie Wiesel Book, Amazing Book, Night Elie Wiesel Book, My Heart, Favorite Book, Holocaust Book, Good Books, Oprah Book Club, High Schools
My 3rd favorite book to teach.
Night by Elie Wiesel. Amazing book that tells of his survival through the holocaust. He is also a Nobel prize winner... sooo good!
Night ~ Elie Wiesel is the author of more than fifty books, including Night, his harrowing account of his experiences in Nazi concentration camps. The book, first published in 1955, was selected for Oprah’s Book Club in 2006. Wiesel is Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University, and lives with his family in New York City. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
Elie Wiesel is one of the most famous Holocaust survivors. This book is his story of survival. My heart re-breaks every time I read this book.
great holocaust book
Very good book

This is a very different book. It's about a father and a son traveling on a road to the south n the future after an unnamed apocalyptic event left the earth in ruins. There aren't many survivors but some who are left are robbers and cannibals. With little provisions and harsh conditions, this is their story of their journey down the road.
