Publisher Comments:

The first book written by Lewis after his conversion, this is, in a sense, the record of Lewis' own search for meaning and spiritual satisfaction--a search that eventually led him to Christianity. "Stands favorable comparison with its great model by John Bunyan".--Chicago Tribune.

Mark, April 21, 2006 (view all comments by Mark)
Fans of Lewis, of Intellectual History, or of spiritual journey stories will enjoy this book both for what they learn and for some great scenes that we can relate to from our own lives and the people we've run into. It's a bit obscure in parts, some of which he tries to address in the preface. And (to use a contrast he employs in the story) I'd say our time is more 'Southern' than 'Northern', a reversal from his day, which makes some of his discussion less relevant than it would be otherwise. Still, he rarely fails to be insightful and at times hilarious, and the descendants of some of his characters are still active today in the news.

Although this is not one of Lewis's better known books, it's an important one for understanding the roots of some of the thinking that he works out in his later Christian writings. Since this story allegorizes his personal journey to Christian faith, it can be helpful also to read _Surprised By Joy_, where he tells the same account in a sort of spiritual autobiography.
