Still an enjoyable, if eerie, read.

Their consciousness hardly exists apart from the social atmosphere that surrounds them. And of course we have contrived that their very language should be all smudge and blur; what would be a bribe in someone else’s profession is a tip or a present in theirs.

    Never read* any CS Lewis before,
    and I’m only halfway through this,
    but so far, it’s pretty entertaining.

    * My college roomie recommended CS Lewis,
    (but it was just after my girlfriend had recommended
    Tolkien, and another friend had recommended Bradbury,
    both of which I read to my everlasting regret),
    so I’ve avoided all of those recommendations for decades.

    UPDATE: prob’ly should mention that the cure was Asimov

    Note: had put this under the wrong post,
    then moved it over here.
