Duriez, certainly goes into great detail about Lewis's search for meaning and longing for joy, his conversation, and his academic career and writing. I would recommend this to any C.S.Lewis fan. -- Lisa Sanderson * Netgalley *
I love C S Lewis and think that this book is the perfect addition to any Christian's collection. -- Amanda Holmes * Netgalley *
Honest and true, this is a well written book that reads like a great conversation. The extent with which the author shares the true story of Lewis's life is amazing. It wasn't written from the point of adoration that makes the reader question the honesty. Instead it is written with fresh insight into a wonderful friendship. As a fan of C S Lewis I was hoping for an enjoyable read - but Mr Duriez delivered much more than expected. Enjoy! -- Lynda Smock * Netgalley *
Formative years are explored in Duriez's book, C S Lewis: A Biography of Friendship. -- Clive Price * Families First *
