An interesting biography of C. S. Lewis that focuses on his intellectual shifts throughout life and the intellectual issues that influenced his work. I found the beginning and ending engrossing, but the middle 4 or 5 chapters dragged significantly for me. Read full review

The history behind some of the stories I loved from my childhood explained some of the little parts I could never understand. It is amazing the relationships Lewis shared with others and managed to write some of the most amazing books of all time. Read full review

Wow, this is one of the most interesting biographies I've ever read. What a great scholary work it is too. I hated for it to end. I have made myself a whole new reading list based on just the stuff HE read all his life. I imagine I'll probably read it again sometime. Read full review
