Own it, read most of it, LOVE IT. It includes many of Lewis's most popular works and explains the symbolism in each. I just wish it included more, and went more in depth with some of the other books the way it does with the Narnia books.

I appreciated this book that gives a great overview of the life of C.S. Lewis, as well as his literary works. While there is a full bibliography at the end of the book (including a brief description for each entry on the list), the most discussed Lewis books are:

-The Chronicles of Narnia
-The Screwtape Letters
-The Great Divorce
-The Space Trilogy
-The Pilgrim's Regress
-Till We Have Faces
-The Problem of Pain
-Mere Christianity
-The Abolition of Man
-The Four Loves

Some parts of this book were better for

A filling appetizer and complement to CS Lewis's works. I like how the author never avoided Lewis's biases to be 'politically correct'.

I'm going to read ALL of C.S. Lewis' books now... And re-read his fictions. And read all his recommended books. Thank you Richard Wager.
