  •  One thing about CS Lewis and this book (9+ / 0-)

    First of all, I had read a lot of Lewis prior to reading this book ... His Chronicles of Narnia were written for his godchildren so keep that in mind if you read them ...
    He can be terribly sexist ... and in terms of theology, i would much rather read Dorothy Sayers than Lewis ...

    However, this book ... A Grief Observed... is different from his others ...he even first published it under a pseudonym of N W Clark
     and many of his friends who had been quite concerned over his grief at his loss sent the book to him to comfort him ...

    It was not until after his death that it was published under his own name ....
