That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis

That Hideous Strength is probably the only novel I have never finished. And I did so for a good reason. I couldn't make heads or tails of it. I know I'm not the only one because I've heard other people say so as well. It makes absolutely no sense.
It's something about a woman who keeps having nightmares and eventually meets Merlin, who has appeared from the past. Also, a planet is coming down on top of Earth or something.
The dialogue and chapters are spastic and impossible to follow. I'm not sure what Lewis was going for with this one, and I don't think anyone will ever know but him.
I'm afraid that, out of fairness, I cannot rate it because I did not finish it.
