Thoughts on C. S. Lewis please!
Love the Narnia books.
Surprised by Joy, a worthy read imho
Chronicles of Narnia; Surprised by Joy; Screwtape Letters
He is one of my all-time favorites!
My favorite author. I’m absolutely obsessed. I just finished The Great Divorce, a short allegory of heaven and hell. It’s a good entry point. The man is brilliant – taught classics at Oxford. I love his life—a life of the mind and soul.
Of course Narnia books are good! I also like the weight of glory and have mere Christianity on my TBR list. Currently reading Becoming Mrs. Lewis, a historical fiction story based on how he met Joy (his late wife).
Also Perelandra, Out of the Silent Planet and one other whose name escapes me. It’s a SF trilogy/allegory.
That Hideous Strength. Love this trilogy!
I loooved Narnia as a kid, and loved his grown-up writing as a teen, especially The Great Divorce. I was not so impressed with the space trilogy: I hated the one with the caricaturish women, the third one I think. These days I think of him as quirky, sometimes cute, badly dated (racist, sexist), esoteric but relatable.
Excellent mind and writer.
My childhood with Philip Paulman!
I’ve only read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Wonderful book.
He wrote some very enjoyable books. I read The Narnia series multiple times when young.
You have to bear in mind everything he wrote was an allegory on his Christian beliefs
Loved the movie Shadowlands.
To me his masterpiece is Narnia.
Love Narnia, have not read the adult books. I should look at them
What an amazing mind!
Loved The Chronicles of Narnia.
I’ve only read his children’s books, which I love.
Very thoughtful. Worth reading. You will be glad you read him
Haven’t read anything by him yet.
Lol. I need to finish stuff by him. Read all of Narnia when I was little tho ^^
@Min I’ve seen the Narnia movie but haven’t read the books
My personal favourite author.
Wonderful Christian writer.
The Screwtape Letters is amazing!
Could not get into the first Narnia book. Haven’t tried anything else yet, so…so far, not a fan of the writing style.
Love his chronicles of narnia
I did too!
I loved the Chronicles of Narnia.
I adore C.S. Lewis! Not only do I love the Narnia books, I also love many of his other works — Surprised by Joy, The Screwtape Letters, collections of his essays, devotionals containing excerpts of his works… He really speaks to my heart and my spirit.
A Grief Observed (devastated when he lost his wife)?
I think he is my bother-in-law’s favorite author
