This is a really quick read but I related to so much of the grief and agony Lewis expresses in losing his wife. For me it was about examining my relationship with God in a more real way and figuring out where the soft spots were that would cause me to doubt when things in my life would be taken away. It also helped me to understand the difference between desperately pleading for God's presence in way that becomes demanding and standing and patiently waiting for Him to heal our wounds. Christ is the goal, not the road toward anything else (which I think is the main point of all of his books).
