it was amazing
Read in January, 2012

A rambling but brilliant biography of one of my favorite writers. It portrays him as a whole man, flaws and all. I am amazed by the sheer volume of research that went into the book. I also love the angle it takes, exploring the events that shaped his mind and led him to create the Narnia books. Possibly the only grating aspect was the author's occasionally overly-informal tone. Using the word "plus" to begin sentences is not only informal, it's just lazy. Other than that, an immensely readable and enjoyable book.
